Giac and Dinan for N55

Has anyone heard progress on GIAC or Dinan having a Stage I tune ready for the N55 anytime soon?

I spoke with Dinan rep. about a week ago and he said they are working on it. No release date yet but he said to keep an eye on their website

When I spoke with GIAC earlier this month, they said they were a few weeks away from getting a test car. I'd say the tune is still a while away.

I'm pretty sure that is not true... We still have a relationship with Dinan at BMW of Sterling.

I see plenty of products for the DME with the N54 platform, but none from Dinan for the N55. Didn't BMW go to great lengths in development to keep the N55 DME mod unfriendly?

There are tuners in Germany who have cracked the DME coding for a flash tune on the N55. Don't expect as much gains as a N54, but still a flash tune will give you decent gain of HP & Tq. I will report on one German tuner on Monday(I think I should have my review done by then).
