Dinan Free Flow Exhaust Install

I took my car on Friday to get the dinan free flow exhaust installed at the local BMW dealership. They gave me a 2013 535 F10 M-Sport model. I can say that I am a fan of the F10's now and will be selling my car in a yr or two and getting a new 535 M-sport at that time. Blows away the E60 in my opinion.

Based on the title, I thought this thread would have some Dinan goodness to read

i would like to tell you but I get my car back tomorrow. They were doing some warranty work on it also. I get it back tomorrow around lunch time. So I will post pictures and tell you how the sound is. Two of the warranty items they did was replace the injectors and do the walnut/carbon blasting. I am very excited to the improvement.

Cool - keep us posted.

I had my intake blasted months ago and it was like a new motor again.

Got my car back today and the exhaust sounds awesome. Also since the carbon blasting I can notice a significant improvement in performance. I will post pictures tomorrow.

Can you please elaborate on the blasting and why it's done?

Thanks.
