Mein Auto: 2009 BMW 750i
I do wonder if the Dinan was installed correctly sometimes. I notice a lot more power at highway speeds, but if I am going strictly off of 0-60 times, there doesn't seem to be hardly any change. I did not get my software installed at a BMW dealership, but instead at Autoscope in Dallas. They agreed that it didn't seem to change the 0-60 time much at all. We rechecked the install, and I watched them recheck it. The computer confirmed that the software was installed. I've since had it checked at another dealership, and it confirmed it was installed as well.

I installed the software on day 1 from having the vehicle, so I really don't have another driving comparison. After having the Dinan S1 software for about a week, I got a "cylinder misfire #5,7,8" error reading on my dash. The dash said it was still driveable but to drive with caution. Took it into the dealership and they said they essentially reflashed the computer (checked the Dinan S1 and it was still installed) and the car has been perfect ever since. It's got 41,500 on it now. It does burn through oil pretty quickly though.
