Adding anything to seriously up the power will just make it a shitty car to drive around town.
Not Even Close Dinan made 100+rwhp, and it still comes with factory warranty.

this is just dinan, there are other well known companies out there that offers this platform with a better motor sold with factory warranty than this flashy junk.

Dinan S3,
Racing Dynamic
ACS
Hartge

Etc all cranking out shit load more power out of the same engine NA.

Dinans engine is a 4.6L. I was saying they couldn't get much more out of the 4.0L. Not to mention is costs $25k!

Who cares about price, it's a limited edition car, better spent on performance then pretty stickers

A modern v8 should not be maxed out around 400hp.

The car is already 5 years old. BMW isn't going to spend time developing a new engine for a car that's out of production in less than a year.

If you don't like the car, don't buy it.

Laughable how some think its so simple for BMW to just toss a new engine in...

Dinan engine makes 109hp/l, stock M3 engine makes 104hp/l. Not exactly a great improvement. Also you do not retain factory warranty. Dinan matches factory warranty on Dinan parts if you car is still under the original BMW warranty.
So lets say you get Dinan engine and you transmission blows. Dinan will not cover your transmission. BMW will blame more powerful engine for the failure. You are SOL.

V8 come in different shapes and sizes. Of course a modern 6l V8 should not max out at 400hp, but for a 4.0l engine 414hp is pretty respectable. If you want more, get a Porsche 911 GT3 4.0 RS or a Ferrari, but get ready to spend 3 times the cost of an M3.

the cecotto and ravaglia edition e30 m3's were just the same old m3 with unique paint options, number plates and some minor trim upgrades, so it isnt surprising that this special edition doesn't increase the performance at all.
