As someone else said kinda Euro sounding. You can definitely make the gun shot noise in sport + but not so much on regular deacceleration.
Overall I think it looks and sounds GREAT.
Does it still make some burbles when you let off the gas like the stock one did?

Hey do you mind sharing how much the shop charged you to do the install on the dinan? I just got a quote for $1100 to do my downpipe and dinan exhaust...I am waiting for a response on just the cost of the exhaust because I can do the downpipe myself. Probably could do the exhaust as well but not sure I want to.

I got a quote from my local BMW dealership when I was considering the MPE before Dinan released theirs and I think they quoted me an hour or 2 of labor. Shouldn't be very expensive, def not $1100 lol

yeah definitely a ripoff for $1,100. It shouldn't be more than 2-3 hour labor considering both of these are bolt on mods.

Down pipe is probably more involved. I was quoted 3 hrs at one shop and ended paying about 1 hr at Carbahn, reverse engineering the price. I paid just under $2k out the door ( but I do have a preferential relationship, however not sure if that was a factor here).

I think 2hrs max would be about right.

That looks great. Mine gets here today. I'm going to do the downpipe an exhaust myself. any chance you have a sound clip? Also I gave up on the carbon fiber diffuser from china as it was in "transit " since 4/18/20. Ordered the Ikon one you have at about half the price of the carbon one.

yes - with bimmercode you can kill the asd / just get a cable adaptor vs bluetooth (as others have mentioned) it's really nice to hear what's real :-)

Can I use bimmercode to also turn off auto start/stop? I'm new to the coding world but would like to learn more

I have the cables and app. I'm asking what option/menu I need to adjust

In bimmercode there's about option to allow last setting to be remembered for start/stop

yes - take a look at the pic in my previous response to you - you'll find the auto start function under the Front Electronic Module option....simply click there and you'll find an option to "auto start stop function off by default"

Hope this helps

ps- if you haven't already....into "demo" mode on the app which allows you to play around with things a bit and get familiar with where some of the options are without being connected to the car

disclaimer: I am no coding guru - in fact I am about as far from that as you can get -which is a good thing because it means bimmercode is easy :-)

For iphone (and I assume other operating systems) Bimmercode can be downloaded from the app store. You'll then need to get (amazon probably easiest) an adapter to go from your phone to the OBD2 connection on your car. You want to avoid a wireless connection for now in that it seems only a wired adapter gives you access to all the options (this was my experience trying my old wireless connection and then moving to wired).

Again - no pro here - but hope this helps :-)

ps- you can grab bimmercode right now and start to play around with all the options from the comfort of your couch using demo mode - also there is a coding section here on the forums with some really smart people that have some wonderfully cool info to share
