Granted, it IS a lot of cash for an M Roadster with some extra go and nimbleness. However, as someone below pointed out, labour costs are pretty high. Also, you have to figure in the development work that Dinan has done. He/they didn't merely piece together a bunch of aftermarket kit and price it up for we, the customers, but his team has put in a lot of R&D time. A lot of the pieces are fabricated inhouse as well. Determining just the right setup of the supercharger and intercooler to maximize output, whilst still taking into consideration the car's driveability and emissions. Determining the proper suspension setup to cope with the increased power. You just don't throw some coilovers and wider tyres on the thing.

Anyway, just my 2 Pfennige.

Cheers,

Patrick
