With 35 years of experience working with BMWs, their engineers are trained to find ways of getting the best out of each BMW that comes into the market. They operate with the understanding that BMW owners view their cars as more than just cars. BMW has a long, rich history that perpetuates a sense of passion into each vehicle owner, perhaps more than any other type or brand of car. At Dinan, they understand this passion and use it to offer comprehensive and unique BMW performance upgrades to BMW owners. They offer these upgrades by creating top of the line BMW solutions, with massive amounts of R&D behind everything they build. Dinan's BMW products aren't merely just parts; they are portals that allow them to take a BMW from good, too great.

In fact Dinan takes their love of BMWs one step farther than most and has been involved in motorsports since the company's inception. They believe racing enables them to hone their R&D capabilities and gain a deeper understanding of how a car performs at its limit. This belief has been awarded numerous times with championships and awards. Most recently from 2010 to 2012 Dinan-tuned BMW powered engines won championships in prototype cars in the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series. Today they are still involved in developing and supplying racing engines but also serve as technical partners to team's racings BMW's around the globe due to their vast amount of knowledge.

Dinan is also the only company that offers BMW performance products through the BMW dealership network. No insignificant feat considering how grueling BMW standards are to uphold its claim to the "ultimate driving machine".



What Kinds of Parts Does Dinan Carry?
Dinan engineers and develop a multitude of performance solutions. In fact, there are way too many to list and give them the credence they deserve. However, the most popular Dinan product lines consist of:

Dinan SoftwareSoftware  Dinan is world renowned for its BMW performance software. Software is what Dinan was built on and excels at. While there are other tuning options out there; there is more to a tune than just cranking up the boost. Power needs to come on smoothly and in a predictable way to make the car as fun to drive at wide open throttle as cruising around town. Dinan software augments your factory BMW and gives it aspirations of grandeur with new found acceleration and speed.

Dianan ExhaustExhaust  Dinan exhaust systems improve exhaust flow by reducing back pressure, resulting in increased power output and a great sporty sound that is civilized when you want it to be and pleasantly aggressive under harder acceleration, with zero drone. They are all made with stainless steel to give that throaty resonance while utilizing black or polished tips to guarantee they look as good as they sound.

Dinan Cold Air intakesCold Air Intakes  Engines need oxygen rich air to perform at their peak levels. Dinan's Cold Air intakes gather this cooler air from outside the engine compartment and pushes it directly through a sealed system to the engine at larger volumes than the stock setup provides. This maximizes the amount of air the engine yearns for when pushed to produce substantial power gains. The engine will come to life now that it is not starving of performance inducing cool air and reward you with unbridled top-end power.

Dinan SuspensionSuspensions  Dinan designs suspension systems that are much more than just lowering the ride height for looks. They also provide improved cornering ability and a lower center of gravity in addition to the lower stance. Dinan's suspension systems integrate form and function to produce a BMW that is visually stunning and rides nearly as smooth as stock but with handling that could perform on any of the world's top racing circuits.

Dinan IntercoolersIntercoolers  The job of an intercooler is simply to reduce the temperature of air that has been compressed by a turbocharger. Dinan's intercoolers increase the overall volume of air that can be cooled while also raising the density of air, meaning more cold, oxygen rich air is available to the engine. Similar to cold air intakes this larger, richer volume of air greatly improves the engines ability to produce the maximum available power.

Testimonials

  • Had trouble with 2013 A4 with 6-speed manual that would barely shift anymore with 36K and thought it need clutch/throw out bearing replaced. After disassembly Mike called and let me know what he thought was really going on was due to dual mass flywheel and unfortunately clutch replacement would not fix the issue. It ended up costing much more than original scope of only clutch kit replacement but thanks to Mike's time spent researching the issue we got it fixed right the first time!

  • Great great place. Can't say enough about Mike - he calls you back immediately, they don't try to get you to fix things that don't need fixing, they couldn't be nicer - he even remembers my face and my name! The car has been in great shape since I had it fixed up there - also, I've rolled in there with a flat tire and they've replaced the tire on the spot in fifteen minutes. They are just great and you cannot go wrong with the service. I don't think they are expensive at all compared to a dealer and they are far more trustworthy. Let me just say - I have a ten year old plain old Toyota Camry CE and I am getting the best service one can get, so they aren't even snobby about the cars they fix! Use this place if your car needs anything.

  • First off, I consider myself a car guy, not quite a 'gear-head'; but I love my cars. I don't drive the nicest of Benz's, or the fastest of Porsche's, but my VW is my dream car.. and I drive it, for lack of a better term 'enthusiastically' (spirited). I change fluids, I use good parts, and I take care of it (take care of your things, and your things will take care of you). This means that whenever I need anything handled, I bring it to Mike (Curry). Not only is he a whiz about all that is cars, he is the NICEST guy I've ever worked with.. Sure, the work isn't cheap, but I would pay MORE if I had to, to get the service and quality work that goes into my car, and my time with them. Options are always laid out, prices are always on point, and service is always through the roof.. Recommended? No, I URGE you to bring your car in for service here, get it done right the first time.. so that it won't break down on you in the future. You won't feel 'taken' when you leave here.. I Promise Promise Promise you will love the work they do.
    -Stephen H.

  • I have been bringing a BMW here for a few years. They do an outstanding job and are happy to explain any work. I feel very confident that I'm getting the real story. There have been times I know they could have told me something needed fixing, but instead they told me I still had life and didn't pressure a fix. They were always right. It's very comforting to feel like you can trust your mechanic. If you have a foreign car give these guys a shot because you won't be disappointed. Mike the owner is a straight shooter and easy going guy. He understands doing a good job equates to a loyal customer. He even has the cars washed before you pick them up. There is definitely a sense of pride in his shop. Basically I know when my car rolls out of this place it is in the best shape it can be.
    -Craig G.

  • Finding a trustworthy and fair auto mechanic is a very difficult task. I am happy to have found European Motorsport. Mike, the owner, has taken excellent care of me every since my first visit 4 yrs ago. He will be honest with you regarding any immediate service as well as tell you if things really dont need to be addressed at that moment. I brought my estimate from Herb Chambers of the number of things wrong my with my BMW that NEEDED to be fixed according to them. When I brought the car to EM, Mike put the car up on the lift and pointed out the areas of interest and their status. 2 of the 7 things actually needed repair. He also showed me a brand new part to compare it to the one that was on my car! Talking a customer out of buying a new part? Really!? It could have been a flux capacitor for anyone who doesn't know cars. My car runs perfect and I will continue to send all of my family and friends to Mike. A real class act Plus he washes the car and cleans it up before returning it to the customer.

  • Fantastic first time experience. Brought in my 2014 Audi S4 for a 10k interval oil change and wheel alignment. Made reservation quick and easy online. Great, prompt email communication (not easy to find these days). Dropped off car in the morning before work, picked it up same day after lunch. Car exterior and interior were also courteously cleaned. I can't imagine I would ever go to a dealership for service ever again.
    -Pete T.

  • I had been taking my VW to a garage in Cambridge for the past ten years. When I found it suddenly out of business, I needed a new, trustworthy mechanic. I found European Motorsport and just stopped in. Mike did a thorough examination of my car and provided individual quotes for groups of service. Despite no appointment, he stayed beyond closing time, and completed only the work I requested. And performed it well. Also, and I don't know if it's their standard practice, but they also washed my car. I will definitely be going back to complete the remainder (and any future) work.
    -Keith R.

  • I bought a used car last fall, and some issues started to crop up after I'd had the car for a few months. I had an idea of what the problems were and how to fix them, but I didn't have the time or space to do the work myself. Communication with Kelley to set up the initial appointment and follow-up on the repairs was great, and the process was very easy. Evan and Mike took a look at the car and diagnosed several issues, confirming my own analysis. Their suggestions to solve the problems were very reasonable, and the repair work was great. Mike went beyond the expected repairs and looked around for a sensor connector that is just missing missing from my car; I appreciate the effort and attention to detail. My car was returned to me with all of the problems solved, running better than it had been, and thoroughly detailed. Absolutely fantastic work all around.
    -Daniel W.

  • Excellent! Extremely skilled, trustworthy and professional.. takes the time to communicate what is needed and prioritize the work. Kept my BMW 327i in top shape for 15 years! The last auto maintenance person you will ever need.
    -Sherry C.

  • Friendly, clean shop with excellent equipment (Hunter Road Force Tire Balancer). They solved my vibration issue flawlessly the first time! Glad I found this shop and I will definitely be back.
    -Gregory F.

  • This is one of the best mechanic shops around. Their attention to detail, customer service and ability to diagnosis and fix problems is the best! Kelley (the front desk manager) is easy to get a hold of and book appointments by email or online. Mike (the owner/mechanic) explains things thoroughly and is very personable. I've never met a mechanic/owner that takes that much time with clients. They wash and vacuum your car before returning it to you. I especially love the honesty of this business; there were two things I thought I wanted fixed on my car and when I told Mike about them he explained to me that they weren't really big deals and weren't worth the money to fix them. I really appreciated this honesty; on an 11 year old car I just want to make sure it is safe to drive and not going to leave me stranded (fixing a broken cup holder probably isn't worth the money).
    -Darren P.

  • Mike and his expert crew are amazing! Very knowledgeable, professional and personable! I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them to others! Vehicle: BMW 530i
