I have a 2001 325i with the Dinan software and cold air intake. It made a difference in the feel of performance. It's not a throw you back, but does make the car a little faster. The sound of the engine changed a little but only when you put it to the floor. I have enjoyed the Dinan and would like to get the exhaust in the future.

Hope this helps.

Dont' waste your money man, look around at other intakes available. A conforti intake and chip will save you lots when compared to the Dinan systems... only if your car is off your warranty.

Does the Dinan stuff void the warranty, particularly the CAI?

Sort of. When you install Dinan hardware, your factory is replaced with a Dinan warranty, with the same terms. So basically if you have 6 months left on your bmw warranty, and you install a dinan cai, you're given a 6 months warranty from dinan that covers the same thing. This is basically so they can say you don't lose your warranty.

That make sense?
