: I heard the JimC chip will NOT work with the Dinan intake...Is this True??

: : : 1. 98 silver, 18k miles, Dinan intake,exhaust,& chip. Koni shocks & springs. (All items mentioned were dealer installed) Mechanical inspection found no problems. Price $37,900

: : : 2. 97 Green, 18k miles, stock. (I would put in JimC chip, but have not decided on intake & exhaust) Mechanical inspection found no problems. Price $34,900.

: : : My major concern is whether I should settle for the Dinan or get a stock M3 and put on JimC chip. Is the JimC that much better?

: : The Dinan reprogaming is hardly noticeable 5-6 horsepower, if can always get the Conforti programing to override it.

I think they had problems with the metal tubing that connects to the HFM on OBD-II cars. Dinan went with a carbon fiber replacement that corrected any mistakes the metal caused with the ECU. I don't think Jim's reprogamming was ever an issue with the Dinan Cold Air Intake system. I could be wrong, but I think there are a few people on the BMW Digests (3 different ones) that have Conforti programing with Dinan Cold Air units...Anyone to confirm this???
