Dinanflash handheld tuner. Anyone have it?

Not much online review wise. Thinking about a stage 1 tune at some point.

Go bm3 or mhd.. there is a reason you don't see much here about them.

Hi, I have DinanFlash, power gains and throttle response is much better than factory. Pops and bangs from the exhaust are loud if you like that. However based on people who have BM3 I splashed out to see what all this talk is about. Unfortunately for me the throttle response is just like stock with a lot of mid range torque but outright performance from the lights is greatly reduced compared to Dinanflash. I have ran into a lot of problems with BM3 with car not changing gears and unable to go above 20 mph. Trying to go back to stock kept failing. Luckily on 4th attempt I was able to force the update to stock. I was stuck on the side of the road for 2 hours. Once I went back to stock I then got a custom tune by DS Performance LLC on BM3. But pops are extremely muted throttle response is worse than stock. Tuner said anything more will damage the CAT. For me Dinanflash is the way to go. I just don’t know why my car refused BM3. :-(.

It's a reliable tuner, not nearly as popular as bootmod3, but Dinan tuner can get the job done.

The gains are conservative compared to other options on the market, consider it an OEM++ power
