Re: Dinan chip for A4?

I haven't had any direct Dinan experience either, but Dinan is the Mac 
Daddy of aftermarket tuners here in the US in my book.  I know they have 
recently put out a 596 bhp BMW 850Csi that is 296 bhp stock.  They're 
very well known for their Bimmer work and are venturing into other 
markets.  If it was my A4 (yeah, then I'd wake up), I'd give it to 'em 
for a month and tell 'em I wanted a durn fast car when they were done.  
They are also well reputed for they're suspension tuning.  A tremendous 
all-around package tuner as far as I'm concerned.  Somewhere near god 
(with a little 'g') status.
