XBimmers,

We had one Tasteful X5m stop by today to swap out his Dinan Tune for our AA stage 2 flash. The customer had previously installed an Akrapovic Exhaust and Downpipe as well as Dinan software but was looking for a little more power.

2 Hours later, Mission Complete!

Yes. It was a nightmare because I got the akra exhaust and then called my dinan dealer and they said I could get downpipes and they would write custom software which dinan said no to so I had to pay $3500 for dinan software then $500 for an ecu reflash and then buy the Active software for another $1500. Not to mention the first Akra dp's i ordered didnt fit their own exhaust then ordered ar design which didnt fit the engine then finally akrapovic dp's again which fit perfect. They are awesome best mod yet! sound is great! Turbos spool so fast now! Dinan wouldn't help or refund Sh!%t!

Yes its the Vorsteiner lip, The Vorsteiner splitters and rear diffuser I put on my M3 was such good quality I am sold on vorsteiner products and their quality. I was thinking of putting the rear diffuser on the X5M but i think the carbon fiber tips will get lost in all that CF. The hood is nice but I think its a bit too much. I want to lower the car and Dinan makes a cheap set of springs but they only lower 1/4 Inch. Im thinking KW V3 coil overs. Any opinions? If i get another one i will go for the gpower body kit.
