Not sure if they are manufactured by different suppliers, but both claims the same increase in negative camber (30min and 0,5 deg is exactly the same)

Looks like the cat is out of the bag for Dinan. It isn't uncommon for Dinan to just rebadge a factory part just to mark it up 400%. Not saying this is def. the case here but i've seen this done in the past on other bmw platforms.

It has come to our attention that there has been some confusion on our OEM BMW parts pricing, more specifically the F10 550i Negative Camber Control Arms (http://www.dinancars.com/shop/D160-0...ms.aspx#page=1).

These are BMW OE control arms. All of our BMW replacement parts available on our site are priced according to BMW's MSRP. On this particular item, the control arms are sold as a pair, so that could be where the price confusion comes into play, with most being sold per corner. .
All of the Dinan branded performance parts that go into Dinan Signature vehicles are designed and built in our Morgan Hill facility and are backed by our manufacturer- like warranty. At Dinan, we pride ourselves on creating the highest quality premium products available for your BMW. We work with many of BMW's Factory supported race teams, building engines and designing products to help their vehicles stay at the top of the podium and transferring that knowledge into our street cars.
Thank you for your support and we hope that this helps clear things up.

Thank you,
Steve Dinan

President of Dinan Engineering

sorry even compared to MSRP the dinan ones are still more expensive. And as enthusiasts we rarely pay MSRP.

The thing is a lot of 550 owners just stroll in and order every Dinan "stage" without even blinking so something like this would have gone unnoticed.

This doesn't happen as often in the 3 series forum because most of this guys are more budget minded and realize you can get the same upgrades for a fraction of what Dinan charges.
