those aren't Dinan tuned cars those are the cars with tunes that just trick the system or override it. the Dinan tune is a real tune

It damages the engine and such and it's costing from $15k to $30k to fix.

That's what I mean. I hope Dinan's tune won't have the same problems like jb3 or procede but who knows? I think that Dinan is just a BMW's authorized tuner so it doesn't mean that theirs is safe heheh.

Dinan's are the safest out there that i know of and if there was a problem it would be covered under warranty. there are others out there that make more power but i wouldn't take the chance personally on my vehicle

Here isomething everyone should see if they haven't before...

http://www.webridestv.com/videos/bmw...stock-m3-79736

This video is great for everyone who puts too much emphasis on torque figures at the crankshaft - the M3 edged out the Dinan Stage 3 in the quarter-mile despite the fact the stock M3 is at 295 ft/lbs vs. 460 ft/lbs for the Dinan Stage 3. Just goes to show that horsepower and torque at the wheels are far more important than simply looking at crankshaft torque...

PLEASE NO MORE 335 VS M3 THREADS; we already have millions, 335xi, vs m3, vishnu 335 vs m3, jb stage X vs M3, modded 335 vs m3, I think we already now the answers and outcome, 335 may be faster straight line, m3 track, and m3 different niche, and built from the ground up around the s65, not like the 3 series

Message to OP

If you want to spend the time and money to upgrade the car (possibly worry about the warranty) get the 335i its a great car to mod, If you want to get a car and not have to do anything to it to make it faster, get the M3 is great without any modifications.

Both of those cars are completly different. Drive both and you will see the difference.
