Dinan does make nice stuff, however you certainly pay for the name. For me personally their stuff is rarely aggressive enough, however I do appreciate their products for what they are.

I've never been much of a Dinan fan and certainly am not a fan of their prices. However, this is a really well put together package and would be a pretty dramatic improvement all around for the M3. I'd love to drive this car hard for a while. Some one spill the beans for the price on this package...

Nice. When I was buying my Dinan goodies I was asking them for some kind of package, but they didn't have anything at the time.

Agreed, Dinan makes good stuff, but for what you pay for it + the cost of the M3 you could be looking at something altogether better in stock form.

While the M3 chassis is decent as far as balance, its limits are way too low to stick that much more power in it, and that is something you can't change no matter the mods. I have RE-11 tires on mine and even then the lateral g's are still only about .95, and the car isn't flat enough in the corners.

What the M3 really needs is 400lbs less weight, and be able to achieve 1.0g's without needing R compound tires and stay flat while doing it.
