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.

My diesel laughs at 100k mi goals.....should hit 500k mi this year, maybe early next. Steadfastly refuses to break. Now replacing driver's seat leather + steering wheel, worn out.

Really, I thought 400k would be the max afore major maint. Wrong-o!

FYI: JB4 & integrated Meth from BMS $1k - mighty fun; better than any Dinan, the latter premium priced throughout the line. Running, what, ~450 hp & 450 ft lb torque....heck I don't even know. Runs sweet, so, hard t'care!
