Hence there own ///MPerformance parts

Dinan is still incorporated at alot of BMW dealers and they still offer to match the original BMW warranty on alot of their parts. Usually the Dinan products go above and beyond the ///M Performance products. Such as for the 135i/335i's M Performance tune's would only give you about 20-30hp increase while Dinan would do 50+. Also this X Pipe is a "racing" product which Dinan can release but I don't see BMW ever releasing something like this.

dinan matches for most of their products but some like their x pipe they have deemed as "racing" use so therefore they offer no warranty on it. so now it's even HARDER to justify spending so much on pipes when they don't even offer warranty.

Yeah all "racing" Dinan products don't have the original BMW warranty. There aren't to many "racing" only products though. Alot more regular products that keep the warranty.

The main benefit I've heard about this Dinan X Pipe is that it produces no drone at all according to Dinan. That's still a pretty big benefit to some since alot of the aftermarket stuff produces drone. I've had multiple PM's asking what I recommend for them to get rid of the drone they currently have with certain aftermarket options. My best recommendation is always the Dinan exhausts since they don't have any.

the dinan xpipe is considered as one of the best in terms of power and no drone like you mentioned
