Have you considered getting Dinan Stage 3 and enjoying the extra power until one of the other tuners can make a custom tune for you? I think I would have gone stir crazy if I was still waiting for a...

I'm almost done modding my car. I'm planning on a suspension tweak (ACS springs or a Dinan tune) and most likely a CAI. My fiver is my daily driver and I'm planning on keeping for 70-80k miles, so...
I spoke with a Dinan rep in August and he said were working on a CAI. He claimed that they were seeing +25hp. I'm not sure if he was referencing a Dinan tuned car or stock.

Thanks. Unfortunately, all of the tracks around here are set to close in the next couple weeks, so I'll have a few months to think about how to go faster. I'm still waiting for a CAI. During...

That must be with European-sized drivers. ;) Do your remember the TopGear episode when they visited the US and introduced us to the Stig's big fat American cousin? The complete package weighs a bit...

I had two runs (out of 7) that were just a few fractions quicker, but I couldn't break 12.5 seconds. I need to go on a diet. :angry-banghead:

Yeah BMW is making some heavy cars, but that's the penalty for the quietness, I pretty sure I was the only guy with an air intake that was designed for sound insulation. BTW, I weighed my car today...

So on a Test and Tune night (not racing), I don't need to time it right (Green Light + 1/2 second), but I can go when I'm ready and get say a 2 or 3 second reaction time and it won't hurt my ET? ...

Since all of this is new to me, how do drag strip times compare to GPS-based VBOX times that Car and Driver publishes? I would suspect that car magazines don't have any reaction time in...

Just guessing: Curb weight, my weight, 1/2 tank gas, air compressor and other junk in the trunk.
I didn't think to check if the track had a scale or not. It would be nice to know the exact...

I went to the drag strip last night for the first time in my life. It was a lot of fun, but no matter what I tried ( Normal, Sport+, DSC OFF, sport shifting, manual shifting, short shifting, power...

Thanks for the great info on the N/S63. As a Dinan S1 tuned 550xi owner, I'm interested in seeing how much further the N63 will reliably tune.
