Hi,

It's not a chip - it's a flash.

I've got the Dinan Stage 3 flash and I'm very happy with it.

Lots of people will no doubt chime in and tell you it's too expensive (and they may be right).

If you can afford Dinan, it's awesome.

Well.. we all afforded a BMW, so we can all afford Dinan.

But if you consider a quadruple digit flash tune reasonable, then get it. The warranty is pretty much worth it, even if the gains aren't the absolute greatest.

But, Dinan is all high quality. You never need to worry about "is this a cheap brand?" "is this a lower quality component/modification?" "do i need to be paranoid if I install this?" because the answer with Dinan is always a resounding "no".

And if you stick with Dinan and rack up 10 points, you get the badge, and everyone else drools over your car.

Or you can get a JB4 for $500.

No, they don't do it anymore. I don't think Dinan have a dealer in the UK now.
