IMHO Dinan is an expensive insurance policy with a mediocre performance package attached. I know a lot of people are happy paying the freight to feel comfortable but others who are familiar with performance enhancements don't want to pay $5300 to Dinan for 38whp less than can be purchased for $500 from other vendors who are not in the insurance business.
Apples to apples, the S3 software pkg on it's own runs $2200 for the N54 motor when purchased w/o warranty that excludes the OC prerequisite. Which puts you in the same boat as everyone else, ie on the hook for damages, but even then I would still consider it the safest tune available relativity speaking. But add in the FMIC and OC, ($1400, $1300) and you have a very respectable, reliable long term DD rocket. Important to me as I plan to keep my car 7-10yrs and/or about 100K in miles if possible. Therefore Dinan is a worth wild investment for me.
