    Just curious about your Dinan intake that you installed a while back, and that you had posted pictures of here:

    http://forums.off-topic.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=466512

    Where were you able to find a Dinan intake for the S54 M Coupe? I have a friend who owns the same car and he can't get one - in fact, looking at Dinan's site, they don't even make one for the car. From talking to some Dinan distributors, there is indeed one forthcoming, but I am curious about yours as you posted the above thread three months ago.

    I even remember the picture. Somewhat. Did the S52 intake work with the S54? I don't see how it could, but I remember your engine bay with the Dinan intake in it. Can you repost the pic?

    I wish I had paid more attention before - I would really, really like to see that underhood picture again.

    I guess I'll just keep this bumped until I get an answer. :dunno:

    Howdy,

    Well I bought the filter off of a guy from MZ3.net and had it installed at the dealer back in Houston. I made an appointment and the car was there overnight, but I got it back and the Intake system was on. Not really much I can tell you about it. Truth is I don't know all too much about specifics (model numbers) but I'm trying to learn. I'll try and figure out some more and post as a I get anything that is of relevance.

    Cool! Thanks for the reply! Do you have that pic of the intake in the engine bay? If they found a way to make the S52 intake work with the S54, I know quite a few M Coupe friends who would be highly interested! :naughty:

    I think its on the computer at home, but I can try and get my roomate's camera out to the parking garage and get a shot. Or get my sister to send me the picture.

    Thanks man. Whenever you get a chance. The affairs of college ( :naughty: ) come first, of course. :big grin:

    Interesting. A friend of mine contacted Dinan and their rep said that there was no way the S52 intake could work with the S54. That the only way your engine could have a Dinan intake on it was if it was an S52 - the older M engine - but then your car wouldn't be an 01....unless I am missing something.

    Did whoever install the intake find a way around Dinan's own engineering? Now I am really interested in that picture of your engine bay....

    Welp,

    Sadly, my car = 2000. For some reason I am gay and with the introduction of the newer 315bhp models, I just put 01'.

    Here is the engine shot as you requested, I apologize for being a big homo, but at least I don't have to lie anymore.

    Sorry,

    Seven,

    Thanks for clearing that up. You have nothing to be ashamed of, and you are not gay. Someone gay wouldn't have come clean. :)
