I got the Dinan Stage 2 suspension and Dinan diff installed last week. Hooked up with fellow board member avry8542 today for the first time. We met in downtown brooklyn and I heard him coming before I saw the car!! lol:1: Then I see the beauty, an Alpine White M5 with Supersprint Headers and Eisenmann race exhaust.:thumbsup: The car sounded incredible! It had a much deeper, powerful sound than mine (Eisenmann race and SS X-pipe):eek: . We took it for a little spin and immediately I could tell there was a BIG difference in how the car feels with the headers........You could feel that the car was literally BREATHING much better!!. We drove to Performance Boutique in Brooklyn to pick my beast up (Michelin PS2's installed). You guys should have heard us going down Atlantic ave setting car alarms off, it sounded like the Montreal Grand Prix.:M5rev:

Anyways attached are some pics of both cars facing eachother so members can get a feel of the difference between the Dinan Stage 2 suspension and the stock suspension. Both cars have the stock wheels but mine are powdercoated. FYI: I love the Stage 2 suspension and definitely feel like it's worth the money....our beasts are already great handlers as is from the factory but this mod makes the car perfect IMHO. Thanks for coming to BK Avery!

Yeah, Dino! Looks bada*s. The side to side really shows the difference in ride height. With all this mild weather we've been having, I wish I held off on putting on the winter setup. Dying for another run up I-287 at 14.0 mph to Bear......
Go for the headers, man. Although, it may be so ungodly loud that you'll have to put back the stock resonators.:biggrin:

If you're around Saturday morning I'm getting up with Jidex and avry at 9am in the Bronx for a little run.

Will be doing the headers but I'm keeping the stock secondary cats in so as not to be obnoxiously loud.:eek:h:

If Michelin made them in the 'big' rubber fitments on my RAC's, I'd get them in a heartbeat. I just can't get rid of the 305'slovelove

Just read your sig. Got the Blinders you dawg! Looks like you're taking point on the next run.:M5launch:

MGUY said:
hey DinodealM5 in your sig it says evosport headers ordered, did they realese the price of it yet?
Hey MGUY if you pre-order now it's $3995.00. They should be ready by the end of January. My guess is that they will probably retail for $4500.00 down the line.
