Considering trading my stock E92 M3 for a Dinan S3 E39 M5

I recently became aware of a low mileage (32K, same as my 08 M3), E39 M5 that has the Dinan S3 package (supercharged 621 HP, suspension, brakes, wheels, etc...).

I spent a lot of time picking out my SSII 6MT CF roof, 19", Tech package, etc. I love the styling, and performance (though I would like more torque.)

Anyway, I am tempted to trade in my E92 as a DD for the E39, due to it's uniqueness, power, and sleeper quality.

Funny thing to ask on this board, but what are peoples' thoughts, and has anyone driven one of the 30 or so Dinan prepped S3's who can offer a comparison?

Here is some more info on the S3:

PS. Not that I am going to Drag the car, but there is a Youtube video of someone posting an 11.795 1/4 mile, pretty impressive specs.
