    • First 11 second N63, BMS Stage II tuned F10 550xi goes 11.9@118 in the 1/4 mile - Comparison to Dinan Stage 2 550xi

      It was just a matter of time and now the N63 V8's are in the 11's in the 1/4 mile with bolt on modifications. This all wheel drive F10 550xi has a BMS Stage II tune along with downpipes. That is enough to break into the 11 second range with a 11.943 @ 117.94 1/4 mile run. As the sedan is all wheel drive this was done on street tires and the 60 foot is a pretty good 1.743. Now let's put this performance in perspective versus the Dinan Stage 2 tune.

      The BMS box costs roughly ~$400. Seriously, that is not a typo and a zero is not missing. The Dinan Stage 2 tune costs $3,499.00. The Dinan tune gets you a 12.5 @ 112 in the 1/4 mile. That Dinan badge on the trunk may impress people who do not know N63 V8 tuning options but everyone else with the 'cheaper' tune on their 550i will be too far in front to see it.

        What do you expect him to do? He's going to play up what he thinks makes him special ("safe" tuning), versus the piggybacks ("unsafe" tuning). In the end, he probably realizes his market is shrinking given what the more powerful tuners are doing for less money. So he's going to play on a few folks' inherent risk aversion and hope that he can continue to charge that small few exorbitant prices. And there will always be some willing to pay (out the nose) for that.
