Dinan M3 Parts Avail?

Hey am sitting here overseas in the dust and sand (US military member) and taking a break looking at M3post which is my way of relaxation here...and low and behold I see this after googling "Dinan M3 e92"

www.dinancar.com
http://www.dinancars.com/store/home.php?cat=787

Anybody know tht dinan has parts avail already for the M3 to include wheels! WOW. Anybody got any or looking in that direction? I know MODS are becoming more and more avail for our cars but I was wondering what folks are doing or have done dinan wise yet!

Looks like 2009 will be a good year when I finally get back home to my M3.

Cheers!

Well, all they've got are wheels. The brake kits are Brembos, so that's nothing new. I am looking forward to seeing their engine and suspension mods.

I'm sure Dinan will be coming out with the usual intake, exhaust, throttle bodies, suspension, and brake stuff. I'd use the Dinan M5/M6 stuff as a guide as to what will be out for the M3.

If I decide to get another set of wheels, those would be them. A little spendy, but I think they would look excellent.

Dinan will probably be the way to go for suspension bits, at least that is what I am looking forward to....

So far its looks like the H&R and Eibach spring options are only decreasing performance

Dinan usually does a good job at developing products that actually improve the performance of the car.

Wondered if someone would respond to that...

Some initial impressions have shown some mushyness/softness in some of the aftermarket spring choices.... I would like to see something concrete.
