I dont think you are getting it

The 3 series used to be the standard in affordable sport sedans. Then the coupe version became the same. The comparison has nothing to do with cross shopping the 2 cars it has to do with the path...

Exactly why I buy from Dinan

This is inevitable with low cost tune kits. Sorry it happened to you but this is exactly why Dinan systems are more expensive. They have to charge higher prices to allow them to fix cars that dont...

Is the New M2 Now the Best BMW Performance Car for the Money?

Seems to me that the M2 is what the M4 should have been. Light, compact, mean and fast. What do you guys think?

No reason to do the MPPK. Dinan upgrade is reliable, much stronger and not a lot more money.

15-20% is achievable

several times per year the dealers can do as much as 20% in my experience. I've done numerous Dinan upgrades on my last 2 cars and that was the max I could get. Rest of the time 15% was as much as...

Super Boring BMW Display at the Frankfurt Auto Show

First mod I did

Bought the OEM black finishers from Tischer. The stock exhaust tips were the only chrome on the car and had to go. I think they were like $35ea. Simple and effective mod especially on an M Sport car.
