The wait is over, Dinan S2 Package with big turbo upgrade is now available for the BMW M2

The wait is over, Dinan S2 Package with big turbo upgrade is now available for the BMW M2

    Back in August Dinan introduced its initial S1 package for the F87 M2 complete with tune, intake, exhaust, and suspension. However, this initial package was limited from the factory in the power department by an already nearly maxed out turbo. In order to make any real meaningful additional power a new turbo and supporting hardware / tune would be needed.    We started down the big turbo path immediately after that August release and offered a sneak peak of the new M2 with all of its prototype hardware at SEMA this past month. With additional testing out of the way since that initial unveiling we are now happy with the tweaked results and wish to unveil this new S2 M2 package to the masses. Now anyone can assemble the package that makes our engineers drool with anticipation for their own beloved M2. The wait for the fully Dinanized M2 is over.    As always M-Spec Performance i ... read more

Should you trust the dealer or an independent shop?

  So you are experiencing some issue with your German vehicle. Whether you own a BMW or Mercedes Benz you know that you own an awesome albeit very complicated vehicle. You want to go to the most competent and trusted service center for your vehicle and you don't want to feel like you've been ripped off!
