    Recently took delivery of an F30 M sport 335 xDrive at the performance center in SC. Great experience, by the way, as was the scenic drive back to Colorado. I was wondering if anyone had any insight into the DINAN tune for the F30 series. DINAN engineering says maybe by the end of the year.

    I got an e-mail from Scott Leandres at Dinan on Feb 25 of this year answering my inquiry about upgrades for the F30. At the time he said they had F30 models they were doing R&D on and hopefully some products may be available within a years time or so. So, hopefully that means soon. He has my e-mail and said he would contact me when more is known. I would be happy to pass this info along when I hear something. I am looking for suspension and exhaust for my 328i.
    As a matter of etiquette, I am assuming since Dinan gets a fair amount of discussion in the forums, it would be okay to post this without being accused of spamming, or being a shill for Dinan.

    This topic is discussed regularly on other bimmer forums. The latest news is that they should be coming out with a stage 1 suspension upgrade (springs/bump stops) in January, 2014. They're having some problems with the software to deal with the ECU programming for the dampers so they're attempting to obtain the encryption information from BMW. This procurement+testing+Q/A will all take a while so don't expect a stage 2 until later in 2014. The stage 1 engine tune will be released sometime after the stage 1 suspension in January.

    I've heard that if you install Dinan software (or any other software) that BMW won't honor their warranty.

    Good question! I was assured by the Dealer that Dinan is one of those few reputable companies that will not affect original BMW warranty.

    BMW doesn't offer a warranty on Dinan products, Dinan does. BMW doesn't offer a warranty on any repairs directly related to a Dinan install, Dinan does. Dinan warranties should be honored at any BMW dealership that still has a relationship to Dinan (not that many any more). At my local BMW/Dinan dealership (BMW Gallery in Norwood/Norwell, MA) I was told by the service manager that the BMW service department makes the evaluation as to which warranty comes into play (Dinan or BMW) in any situation where there is a question, and then informs Dinan that their warranty needs to cover if that's what they have determined.

    Installing Dinan parts does not void the BMW warranty for repairs not associated with the Dinan parts installed.

    And that is the key part.

    BMW is also in the business of selling high performance parts.
