Dinan exhaust

I know a lot of people don't care for Dinan products, but they just added E90/E92 exhaust to their site.

I'm curious how it sounds.

Interesting. The pictures really suck. I guess that in a few weeks we'll see some user photos here. The hp and torque claims are modest, that's refreshing.

I saw this system while it was in development ... sound shouldn't be very loud ... should be no drone ... will be offered only with black tips (and only 2 of the 4 tips are actually functioning)

No wonder they painted it flat black. That way it'll be harder to see the non-functioning tips.

The E92 335i Dinan exhaust sounded pretty decent, but has cheap looking tips. While it's hard to tell from the supplied pics, it looks like these tips look pretty cheap, too. Also, they need to post a sound clip.

Thanks. That can't help but be better than Dinan's sad photos.

Are you saying that because of their prices? Besides that I think their stuff is pretty good.

Yeah, I'm very happy with my throttle bodies and 4.10 final drive. I've already got the AA Signature exhaust and probably wouldn't chose the new Dinan, but I do have the Dinan lower springs on order.

If it's a price thing, always invetigate the price with a dealer. I received dealer discounts from suggested retail AND received the recent rebates offered by Dinan. If your dealer is getting the install and particularly if you order more than one part, they're likely to cut you a deal on the part cost and maybe even on the install.

Would feel wrong not to have all 4 tips workn...even if it took away the drone. But im sure Dinan knows more than i do.. its just that i would want to hear all 4 screeming at 8k rpm....

Btw: 503Alex if i had a m3 i would have those wheels.....are they ac schnitzer??
