Right. Essentially, the DINAN warranty mimics the BMW Factory warranty. And since DINAN authorized BMW dealers (for the most part) s=do the work, it makes warranty work relatively painless.

No. I intentionally did NOT get the OEM Performance Package. The DINAN software replaces the tune you got from the factory, so there really is no point. You'll be paying another $2k for only an...

Enjoy! I picked up my 35i M-Sport last week. Huge improvement over my 04 4.4, though the turbo engine misses the grunt that you will enjoy in the 50. I also got Carbon Black. Awesome color, but...
