When in doubt,why not call the tuner and ask them.Get their point of view even if it will be biased.I use forums to get different points of view so I can form my own opinion.WannaM5 said:Does anyone prefer stock over the Dinan software? I ask because my M5 already had the Dinan software installed, and given some of the responses on this thread I'm wondering if I wouldn't be better off reverting to the stock software. The car is stock otherwise, and upgarding to Powerchip is probably not an option at the moment.

Might I suggest then a dyno session?See with your own eyes the results.WannaM5 said:I actually did talk to the tuner about the specs and purported benefits of the software, and I agree with you that it was useful even though clearly biased. I did not, however, ask them if anyone prefers the car without it as their answer would be a given and I think not particularly useful.

When is the last time Dinan Upgraded their software?

Yes Mike true,mottati said:Not to slam powerchip (i have it in my car) but dinan did have the ability to adjust the M5's idle years ago, and it was part of their "clutch software" to raise the idle speed to 900 rpm, so we ought to give dinan credit for that! It took powerchip a couple years to change idle speed.
That said, you pay your money to powerchip, and they will bend over backwards to help you out when you need upgrades in the future. They are a great group of enthusiasts.
