subjectRe: Download for 535xi



Hi Alex,

We are working on it now. No ETA yet from engineering.

I would suggest signing up for the DINAN Newsletter as it will have the latest news and product releases. The sign up form is located on the dinancars.com home page on the right hand side.

Thanks,

Brian

Mrmph.

Tell them to develop a set of lowering springs for the DHP cars while they're at it.

I spoke with a tech rep from Dinan last week about this and they are working on it. The person I spoke with said that the solution would be a bit more elaborate than just springs since their design intent was to maintain full travel while still lowering the car, so the kit might include new or modified bump stops.

Good.

THe DHP cars need some stiffer springs. Comfort is unusable over 20 MPH. I want Comfort bo become Normal, Normal to become Sport and Sport to become Advanced.

you can remove it in less than 5 mins before bringing it back in for warranty work. It's also a Dinan warranty not a BMW warranty. Non-Dinan authorized dealer can refuse service or tell you go to an authorized Dinan BMW dealer for service. You should read the fine print.

I have read the fine print.

What's the deal with the tunes on this car? On my Volvo, there was no way to hide them, but they were also loaded with a softloader, none of this kind of piggyback thing going on with Vishnu and Berger. Is there any record of the car having been tuned?

no. You can also order the CANbus tool to remove any codes just in case.
