Hi Guys:

Two questions:
(1) Is the DICE (as sold by BSW) the same thing as the Neo ProLink PODBMWV1S (as sold by Neo Car Audio)?

(2) I have found out that TechMax sells the Neo ProLink, but who in the Mississauga area sells the real DICE unit?

Thanks

Good luck on the DICE thing in Mississauga. I ended up buying mine from the US (and of note, BSW won't ship to Canada with those units). In fact it's sitting at the post office waiting for me to pick it up, woohoo. I got mine from Performanemp3.com -- who had a good price and shipped it via USPS without hassle and quick. They also sell on eBay but I always feel better dealing direct from a companies website where possible ... they advertise themselves as authorized DICE dealers and ensured me that if there were issues it wouldn't be a warranty hassle (which BSW states as their reason to not ship outside the US -- that supporting them is a problem).

I also pretty much HAD to buy the DICE unit as my 740i w/DSP doesn't work with anything else at all.

I had two Dice Silverline Pro. A ton of issues. When teh second one died suddenly I tried a USA-Spec & never looked back.

USA-Spec? Did you buy it on-line or at a dealer in the Brampton area?

Just wanted to update that it turns out these guys are NOT certified DICE distributors (even though they advertise it right on their main page), meaning don't buy DICE gear from them! If you have problems DICE won't support it under warranty and of course it looks like the DSP adapter portion of my unit is a lemon (cuts in a out, works about 3/5 times) uggg.
