I think the biggest reason for dinans delay is being able to communicate and write over the ECU. When i spoke to OE tuning awhile back they said they can flash the car but once you turn the car off it would revert back to stock settings. The only way for them to do it permanently is to remove your ecu and bench flash it. This is a problem because 1) not everyone could afford the down time and 2) the ecu is attached to the engine below the intake manifold so not easy to access like it was on older Bmw.
