Great site so far. I just bought a 2003 540i sport black on black with 97k on it. Runs like a champ and have had a few things already fixed on her like the radiator and all seems good now. Not sure what to mod on this bad boy yet...any ideas? I also have a BMW X5 04 4.4 Dinan stage II. Look forward to many great conversations and information! thanks again:thumbup:

It was and rides all the same. A few changes on the inside trim black pieces other than that it looks great for the year. Need to add ipod interface and soon some DINAN mods for me as well.

The only Dinan part I have on my 2003 540 is their transmission software. I think it is a must for every car lover who drives an automatic 540. I bought my car new in September 2003 and I think the Dinan software was installed in the summer of 2004.

How much was the software? Did you feel a big difference?

35% tint to go with the black would be a cheap, easy first mod! Congrats on the new car!
Already made the appointment. Thanks:thumbup:

Dinan is an engineering company with real engineers with real degrees. They are expensive yes but you pay for well designed/simulated and reliable parts and actual engineering. They aren't just a mod company as some are.

I have been more than happy with my Dinan parts and software.

That's an automatic???????!!!!
Sometimes people do need automatics, like me because my wife has to drive my car sometimes. My last car was a manual, which I do prefer. I was wondering what people are thinking about these new auto or semi-auto transmissions out there. I just read in the most recent Car and Driver that the new Audi TT RS does 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds with its DSG transmission in auto mode. That same car is coming to the U.S. with a manual transmission only and with that, it does the same trip to 60mph in 4.5 seconds. Which one would you pick?

I know it was a hard decision , but the condition on this car was outstanding! Best I had seen in my searches for a year now. Ordered Dinan exhaust and intake and SW!,,:bigpimp:

Yes dinan is really good but still overpriced sorry. There are other quality brands that do not cost an arm a leg and a kidney.
