Mein Auto: 2010 535i
Dinan Stage 2 for 2010 535i M sport

Hey guys, recently I've been looking into upgrading my car from having Dinan Stage 1 software to Stage 2. Ive been really happy with the results from the first upgrade, but I want to take my car to its full potential. After doing some research, I realized that the 535i has a stock oil cooler. which was the one thing holding me back from the stage 2. What I want to know is why the BMW dealership in Sacramento told me that Dinan will only install Stage 2 upgrades for track cars only. Is this only a California thing? Because It seems like many people have the upgrade in their cars. Do I have to get it installed in another state for it to be done legally? I hold a drivers license for Nevada, so I was thinking about trying there. Can anyone tell me where I can get it done???

While I don't know, it may be that they haven't been able to pass the CA emissions tests with Stage 2 on that vehicle's configuration. If so, you could have big troubles next inspection time.

The 2010 has the N54 right? And my 2012 has the N55 which is why I can't have Dinan.

What's the difference? Or is that a really dumb question?

FWIW
