Best E92 M3 Power Pulley-Your help please!

I am looking to buy a power pulley package for my 2008 E92 M3 6MT and wanted your input on this. Whats the best setup/provider out there and which ones should definitely not be considered? Those that have them, do you feel and see true gains (dyno) based on the advertised numbers? Are there any drawbacks to the pulley system? Can it be recognized by the dealer and can it void your warranty? You help is much appreciated. Thanks.

I'd suggest taking a look at AA or Evosport. The pulley is not easily identified upon visual inspection so you should have no problems taking it in for service.

To clarify on this, the Dinan pulley includes their own warranty, which a lot of forum members often mistake for an "approved" BMW part. Needless to say - the Dinan parts are very reputable.

We like the Rogue pulleys, which utilize "off the shelf" belts, which can be purchased from any auto part supply house and provide considerable gains.

Thank you for clarifying what I was trying to say tom. The forum was acting up on me and wanted to throw my thoughts out quick. The Dinan parts are not an "approved" BMW part, Dinan backs your factory BMW warranty with theirs so you are therefore covered through them when you install their part. Hopefully this makes sense.
