BMW Super Bild Of The Day: Dinan E39 M5 S3

FULL ARTICLE

Quote:
I don’t particularly care for a burnout. As a matter of fact, it’s a waste of tires, puts undue stress on the clutch and drivetrain, and at the end of it all says very little about the capability of the car performing a sad show of force.

It’s different however when the car behind the cloud of smoke is an E39 M5 putting down 621 horsepower and sounds like a Nascar.

Enter Steve Dinan and his Dinan Engineering E39 M5 S3. A Supercharged, fire breathing beast of an M5 that could embarrass most sports cars and does so in complete comfort. Some of you may recognize the name Dinan as the world class American LeMans Series BMW engine builder for teams such as Chip Ganassi Racing, who subsequently won last year’s 24 hours of Daytona. Yep, that guy!


Dinan starts with an already impressive E39 M5 and then adds his S3 kit ($20,000) to make an already amazing car even more so. But as with any Dinan tuning package, the focus is on reliability, driveability and when called upon, the ability to make most cars disappear into your rear view mirror.

Fancy a Dinan tuned BMW M5 capable of roasting Michelin tires into a pile of molten rubber? Hit the source link.

Only $20K?....He forgot that Exhaust Headers, Free Flow Exhaust, High Flow Throttle Bodies, Swaybars, Big Brake Kit, and R Compound tires, D550-3904 Stage 1 Flywheel and D550-0015 Hi-Clamp Clutch Kit are all required so its closer to $50K

Maybe it's 20K after you've done DINAN stage 1 and 2.

My M5 is a S2 so I have the Headers, Exhaust, High Flow Throttle Bodies and probably the swaybars but not the BBK, tires, flywheel or clutch.
I'd rather get the ESS / RK kit which both cost under $7K and get 90% of the power for 33% of the cost

According to Dinan's website, the supercharger alone is 20 grand.

And it's spelled "build"

This is what happens when you attend Timmayfest. Look up "S/C E39 M5" as soon as you get back.

How did the S2 do in the quarter? Understand track was underprepped and over heated, sort of.

If you click on this link
Dinan Cars - Supercharger System

Then the tab "Spec" you will see what I listed was the required products.
@ Timmayfest this year I asked Kelster about his Beast.
He brought his 03 in 06 CPO'd make the conversion to S2 and then to a S3.
I guarantee you he spent $70K after he brought his car.

I let Clemster do a pass, he got 13.7 @ 107....no one was setting personal bests there

I imagine Adam held back at least 1/2 sec if not more being it wasn't his car. On a proper track, I'd be surprised if the S2 does not dip into 12s.
