▀▄ eas | M235Xi gets the Dinan P3 package

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
The owner of this M235i xDrive brought it in for a bolt-on cocktail and the brand of choice was Dinan. Within that Dinan cocktail was an intake, intercooler, exhaust and a performance tuner ECU. Being an experienced and well-trusted brand, Dinan's quality parts took this M235i to a whole new level of performance.

Dinan's carbon fiber intake not only looks cool but it also adds 10 horsepower and 15 ft. lbs of torque with a larger air box, filter and, MAF. The intake also amplifies the induction noise with a more aggressive tone. Dinan's stainless steel free-flow exhaust with the ceramic black tips adds an additional 6 horsepower and 5 ft lbs. and makes the car sound even meaner out the back. It also features a Helmholtz chamber that reduces drone to provide a pleasant driving experience. The Dinan high-performance dual core intercooler offers gains of 15 horsepower and 13 ft lbs and a 240% increase in the face area over stock for maximum cooling efficiency. That upgrade is sure to keep your engine well cooled during an intense track day. All the above upgrades in conjunction with Dinan's Stage 4 Performance Tuner plus the Dinan Big Turbo brings the final output to a mighty 455 horsepower and a road-punishing 455 ft lbs of torque. The best part of all is that long-term reliability is not affected by these warrantied upgrades.

The car is also equipped Dinan's Performance Springs which lowers it 1/2'' in the front and 5/8'' in the rear. A BMW M Performance carbon fiber spoiler adorns the deck lid, adding a stylish yet subtle touch. This mad 2-series doesn't look too different from a stock example but in terms of performance, it's a whole another story.

Modifications:
Dinan - Free Flow Stainless Exhaust With Black Tips-
Dinan - High Performance Dual Core Intercooler
Dinan - Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake
Dinan - Performance Tuner Stage 4 for BMW F22 M235i
Dinan - Performance Spring Set
Dinan - Big Turbo for the BMW N55 Engine
BMW - M Performance Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler

From my understanding the camber plates dont fit the all wheel drive models.

I don't think that is a true statement. They all use the same strut mounts.

Plus the install guides say xdrive

What is the rear diffuser? That is the one thing that I think looks terrible on the stock car - this one looks great.

I'm not tracking this car and wanted to see how the Dinan springs were on their own. The improvement over stock is just what this car needed IMO.

10 hp from an intake sounds like a fairy tale

wonder how Dinan can make a statement like the long-term reliability is not affected... when it's adding like 130 more hp....

I get the warranty on the parts... but saying the car after 10 years will have the same reliability than a stock car... is a bit too much in my opinion..

I would like to see before and after numbers of the 1/4 mile to see what gains were achieved from tune. Curious to see what gains were made in 1/4 trap numbers for speed and time.

Sounds like it's a beast now. although, 10hp from an intake alone doesn't sound right. maybe when combined with everything else?

I was about to say that you need darker tint, but then I saw that you're in California lol.
