Mein Auto: Dinan 5
Dinan 5

Hey fellas, I'm new to BMW's and to bimmer fest. Not completely sure how to navigate the site to we'll so I could be posting in the wrong area, sorry in advance. I have recently acquired a 2005 545i. It has Dinan badging on it. (Dinan 5) not completely what this means but a quick look around the car and listening to the motor it definitely isn't stock. (I.e. Dinan exhaust, and intake.) Not sure about anything else really. Just trying to get an idea of what all I've gotten myself into. Never seen a dinan 5 before that I can recall, and especially haven't seen to many with a manual 6 speed. Is there anyway I can verify what stage, if any that this "Dinan 5" package is? Any input or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

It's likely just a sticker that came with the aftermarket parts.

If it is legitimate Dinan badging, qualification is based on a points system, with differing points assigned to their exhaust, intake, ECU reflash, suspension, etc. The badge is issued when 10 points are attained. I'm not sure if there would be a plaque or paper certificate with the car.....you may be able to trace back your particular upgrades through Dinan with your VIN.
