: I'm not anti-Dinan, I just think and know the M5 will stomp a supercharged 540i. Drive one and then you will understand. Why wait for Dinan when ERT has had a kit out for 3 years? You are getting the same parts and the GIAC software, which is far superior to anything coming out of Dinan.
: My 2 cents.
: Why not also look into Mosselmann, which is a far larger company than Dinan? They are producing a kit for the 4.4 litre now.

BTW this is my favorite argument on the board. Most of the guys around here seem to support Dinan. There are a couple of exceptions and we all know who they are. Hans your opinion is not backed up by anything. ERT has a sc that is correct, but do you know anyone that has it installed? I bet you don't. In fact, a put together a group effort to try and locate any 540 with the ert sc and found zero. That tells me that ERT isn't dependable, besides you get what you pay for. 5K for the ERT versus 15K for Dinan (i'll go with the superior product). The fact is that Dinan is making BMW's the way they should come from the factory. If you don't think the products are worth it, then don't buy them. But your a minority. Dinan has earned a reputation that is above and beyond any other tuner. RCD, and even ACS have quality control problems. Dinan has none to my knowledge. Ever wonder why Dinan has its shops located in BMW dealerships. I guess not. Do some reasearch and you will see that a fully blown DInan 540 is a faster, some say more dependable, and just as exotic as an M5. And i didn't pay 85K for my ride. Good luck maybe Step will do the mods on your car for you lol.
