The video features a beautiful black 1M, and of course, a great looking F10 M5.

Thank you for posting the video. Pretty inspiring. And I really liked the engine dyno with the S62 (@3:02).

Yeah very inspiring. Pretty much took the words out of my mouth at the 1.30 mark (When I first started driving a BMW I'd never had a car that felt so well put together when pushed to the limits) and again at ~6.00 mark (As I put it before, being in control of something that is so potentially out of control)

I had the privilege to speak to Steve and have his input on my engine build. Very nice video.

I noticed the same thing too. Then I went to their website and browsed the F10 M5 mods. Not much except for exhausts.

Maybe it hasn't been released yet?

Definitely hasn't been released. The F10 boards would have quite a few threads if it did. If I were to guess those numbers are probably their stage 3. Most Dinan tunes are pretty conservative, +120HP is huge. I don't see Dinan going the piggy-back route so this means they've cracked the ECU or BMW gave them access which is really good news for F10 M5 owners.

Thanks for posting this, OP! Very inspiring, like everyone else said. I had a chance to meet Steve at Bimmerfest a few years ago. He signed a poster for me which is now hanging in my guestroom/office. The ultimate BMW enthusiast.

Actually met Jeff in the video too at Dinan here in Campbell.

Dinan will reveal that they have certain mods made and tested, but not released yet. A few years ago at Bimmerfest, I was at the Dinan booth chatting with them about their F10 550i. Performance Technic was modding out their own shop F10 550i to all of Dinan's goodies, but at the time had only been able to get up to the Stage 3 tune. Chris McNaughton at the Dinan booth was telling me that their F10 550i was running a Stage 5 tune, which Performance Technic (a certified Dinan dealer, may I add) didn't even have access to yet. I had a chance to see Dinan's F10 550i in action on 101N heading back from Bimmerfest...damn was that thing fast.

I'm sure the Dinan tunes for the F10 M5 will be released soon.

Question will be at what price? We all know how inflated their prices are to begin with kinggf

$$$$$

5 dollar signs, if Yelp would allow such a thing!

Given their tunes for the 550i....I'd say probably around $3k-$5k depending on what stage you get.

Interesting that their making 670HP / 600ft-lbs with their F10 M5. I assume they've been able to modify the ECU.

WOW! Talk about a beast!

I doubt Dinan cracked the ECU. You will know ECU is cracked when top speed limiter is gone and we are not talking the M Driver’s Package BMW that raises top speed in F10 M5 to 305km/h. We are talking no limiter period. All piggybacks so far and i know Dinan will not call it that but that is what their system is doing.
