The M3 name by itself carries a lot of weight in the automotive world, sitting at the top of the 3 Series line as BMWs sportiest offering. An impressive car right out of the box, with details like a carbon fiber roof, powerful brakes and an electronically adjustable suspension that are reserved only for the M badge.

The Dinan S3-R M3 takes the M3 to a whole new level, hiding under the conspicuous hood is 527 horsepower and 407 foot-pounds of torque, up 113 horsepower from the stock engine. The stock V8 engine is bored and stroked for a gain of 608cc of displacement. The Carbon Fiber High Flow Intake and bored out High Flow Throttle Bodies add more oxygen rich air while the Middle Racing Exhaust and the connected High Flow Exhaust let the spent gasses exit with ease. And the story does not end at the engine like so many of these stories do but continues on to the practical, with suspension upgrades to match the newly found power and the massive amount of rubber now beneath it. 

Dinan’s wheel and tire combination put 275/30 tires on the front and 295/30 tires in the rear on a one piece forged wheel that weighs just 19 lbs, significantly reducing unsprung weight. To handle the power and torque delivered to the larger wheels the suspension was upgraded with new springs, front anti-swaybar, Carbon Fiber Front Strut Braces and Racing Rear Toe Links to put the power to the ground. The E92 M3 carries the tag line on the BMWNA website that "racecars shouldn’t be confined to race tracks", Dinan could not agree more.

The Dinan S3-R M3 offers remarkable performance that can be enjoyed without the fear of compromising warranty coverage or the reliability expected of a BMW automobile.

Simple outside but monstrous inside, dinan don’t focus much more on the aero dynamic. Well, I guess engine performance is enough to gain a high quality and sports performance of the M3.

Nice, I really like it on how simple colors like white and black can make cars look cool. Add a cool body kit like that of this car and surely it will be a good car. Well, from where I’m at, people doesn’t really like to put that much blings on their cars, a simple tuning or customization like that one can be candy for them.

Super carbon kits are added. For sure this m3’s weight is totally reduced to 20-25%.
