It sounds like this change was more of a big "F You!" to Dinan, as it's rumored that there's some new high level encryption technology being used that will be VERY difficult for Dinan to crack. The earlier ECU they were able to crack through bribery for some security codes, but it seems the system in this new ECU is a bit more dynamic.

In short, I'd give it a month or two at most until there are work-arounds from most tuners. Could take a long time before Dinan cracks it. They'll most likely have to pay BIG bucks to someone high up in BMW AG to get the software needed to reflash the ECU.
i just hope they can crack it
i want some serious power
