After dealing with After market Suppliers over the past 10 yrs I finally came to the same conclusion.The prices we pay for these goodies are outragious.If you owned a Vette or other american car the costs are half what we pay and for the same product.I am personally tired of being ripped by these guys and thats why Im buying a Vette!My supercharger from Dinan costs me $8,000 the same unit for a Mustang costs $2500! who needs this B.S.?

Dont just blame Dinan....Any parts for your M3 are going to be way out of whack when compared to a Corvette, Mustang, whatever....When a mustang guy wants to change his final drive ratio, he takes it apart, and sticks in new gears....When you tell them that we have to replace our entire differential , he looks at you like crazy...I mean, he talks about 'gears' he's changing, and you talk about the 'differential' youre replacing, and often you dont even realize youre talking about the same part...Its just another world with Euro cars....its either one you buy into, or not..Its not Steve's fault ....I often think I'd like a C5 also, and I bet a lot of people, disenchanted with the m46 go that route. But its an entire culture which is different, not just a 'greedy tuner'.
