Mein Auto: 2012 Alpina B7 Dinan
New Member - 2012 Alpina B7 with Dinan extras

Just became a member of this forum, amazed how much information is out there on these the BMW forums and blogs- I just received my first 2012 Alpina and I really enjoy the car, especially on the highway. I am a littel bit overwhelmed by all of the options, not sure I need all of them, seems like 20% of the cars price is extra options, but I suppose if you set up to buy one of these, the options and the added cost are just a part of the package, "if you want to play, you gotta pay.."

I want to get the car dyno - Does anyone have information on what power the Dinan Software and exhaust together add?

All the badges in the back make it look a little too busy. Maybe you should consider remove the Dinan one.

Anyway, congrats and welcome aboard! And of course, enjoy the car!

Since there isn't a tune associated with the exhaust, I doubt the peak number will change much with an axle-back exhaust system, so I would guess Stage 1 573hp is close enough.

I agree the trunk looks a bit busy. I would suggest removing the Dinan badge and let the Alpina enthusiasts wonder about the round quad exhausts. Everyone else wouldn't have clue anyway.

BTW, in order to get the Dinan Badge, you should also have the Dinan suspension. Don't ask me how I know.
