Tailpipes diameter?

Are you tuned and would a tune especially Dinan, take care of the lose low end torque feelings?

I agree 21" are the perfect/best size for our cars, I've used 20",21" and 22", 21" are the best all around!

I don't have much input on anything DINAN, personally I think DINAN is good brand but over priced, most ppl buy DINAN (or at least used to) to keep they warranty but this will only apply for new or newer cars.

If I'm not mistaken my tail pipes are 3.5"

Velos tuned for about 4 years now, no issues to report.

Great... While I await to see if I have any bites on my FS ad, if not I will be more than happy to go this route > drop /bigger wheels/tires/exhaust and the tune.

I keep forgetting about the Dinan warranty is for the new vehicles and not used, good point.

Tune of-course not for the power but for the smoother/pleasurable driveability experience, do you agree/

for me main goal for the tune was to get rid of turbo lag, tune did just that, getting little extra horses was a plus but I wouldn't say I didn't have enough power before the tune.
Driving experience before the tune was good after it's great!

This exactly is what I would do the tune for. However, $$$$ spent on the extended warranty is what I don't want to mess with. Having said that, driving a tune car sensibly should cause not much problem like you have had none ever since you tuned yours

yes as I mentioned I bought the car in December 2015 (4 years in a week from Tuesday) and put the Velos in about April/May of 2016, no related to tune issues with anything since!
Also I paid roughly $1700 for that tune at the time, from what I know you can get the same tune for half the price this days
