Hey there everyone,

I own a 2010 BMW 550i GT with Dinan Stage 2 software and run it on Conti's.

Glad to be part of the group.

Next steps are suspension and SuperSprint exhaust

Once you're done with those mods you should armor plate it and sell it for a profit to the US Govt as the new POTUS vehicle ;-)

Of course you'd have to remove the roundels, oh the humanity!

Thanks. I will get some loaded up this weekend. When I went to Morgan Hill and got my Dinan Stage 2 installed, it was very impressive to see their shop. I will tell you though they had a glass I could look through when they took my car in and I got more than a few "what the F&^(*" expressions from the mechanics. But as I talked to them for awhile they thought it was great that even though not necessarily deemed very popular or attractive it was cool how much I enjoyed my GT and wanted to tweak it.

On the drive back from the bay area to SLC there were a couple of quiet stretches to open her up and let's just say not only was the increase impressive I hit the end of the speedo.

AC springs are going to be next and should have those done in the next month.

Exhaust I am going to have to think of how far I take it and if I can pass smog if I take off the cats.

All in all, love my GT and it is quite the sleeper. They look at this tank and have no idea how quick it goes.

Thanks again for the welcome

Congrats! Pics please.

I have Stage 3, plus a custom exhaust, and I love it. After the tune issue was resolved, the car is an absolute monster.

Btw, you must cancel that order for ACS and place one for H&R immediately the problem with the GT is it's taller than an F10, however H&Rs drop your GT 2", giving the look of coils almost haha... Plus the handling and steering improve, and ride quality is maintained. Plus, it looks sooooo good.

Thanks for the comments. I will put up some pics after the suspension is in place. Not as much of a fan of H&R so going to stick with the AC springs.

From the SuperSprint exhaust system, not going to worry about that till the spring. Plus looking into a fabrication spoiler to be built from scratch.

Nice car you have there and nice meeting you.

A spoiler? I've always wanted one. If you do get around to making one, maybe you can do a double group buy with me and I could get one. I'll PM you later. Looking forward to pics.
