Not sure. Dinan stuff is pretty well built to begin with. No sure if its worth it. Maybe Dinan needs another source of income.

I can see its use if you have the stroker engine though - in case it fails or causes an OEM part to fail.

I guess a plus is that it provides coverage even if you have no Dinan parts.

I'd have to see the contract language to make a better judgement.

I guess the benefit is if you are looking for an aftermarket warranty this may be a good one. Dinan's warranty will cover the car bumper to bumper for 6 years, 100k total miles. It also covers BMW Performance parts as well. It is an exclusionary warranty, I image a NAC type warranty that allows you to mod with Dinan parts.

If it is what you say it is, then the next step is to look at the contract language and see what parts are excluded, and what "bumper to bumper" really means.

Well I have 2 kidneys so the first part is no problem...but they also seem to be able to make quite a few little meteorites - will they take those in lieu of the $5 large?? Lol!

Here are some screen shots of the particulars. At first glance it looks similar to my current NAC, however the quote I got was about 1K less than my NAC price from 1 year ago.
