Project BMW M2: An Ultimate Driving Machine Elevated by Dinan
The BMW M2…
A perfect combination of performance and styling, this car is designed to use every bit of its horsepower and deliver a fun drive at the same time! The smallest version of the M series BMW cars, it is a whole foot shorter than the 3 series cars and also the narrowest. Less car equals more fun!
Carrying the M badge on the car encompasses upgraded components such as engines, transmissions, trims, aerodynamics, braking systems and exterior styling. Stock this car comes with a turbo charged 6-cylinder engine that makes 365 HP and 343 ft-lbs of torque. It can go from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds, making it an already fast, fun car out of the gate.
Tom’s M2 came to us stock with only the addition of an M Performance upgraded exhaust from the BMW factory. His car is one of a handful of M2’s in the state. It was very difficult for him to attain the car. In fact, he had to travel out of state to purchase it. He was luck enough to find his car in Albuquerque, NM at Sandia BMW. Because his car is already a unique car, he wanted to make it more unique by upgrading it. Rather than upgrading one component at a time in stages, he decided he was going to go big or go home! Thus, deciding to upgrade it to a Dinan stage 4, preserving the warranty by installing all Dinan components.
To do accomplish this, we installed:
- A bigger turbo
- An upgraded inter cooler
- A carbon fiber cold intake
- Dinatronics S performance stage 4 tune
In addition to the Dinan upgrades, he wanted to improve the car’s handling both on the track and in his daily driving. We installed a custom Ohlin Suspension system.
An unbelievably fast car, that does not lack in comfort and control. This car drives smoothly and gives you the confidence in driving it. Whether you are driving in the city, through a canyon, or on the track, this car allows you to utilize its full potential. The BMW M2 is truly a track ready, daily driver equally sharing performance, drivability, comfort, and styling.
After the stage 4 kit was installed the car produced 430.66 HP and 474.45 ft-lbs of torque. An increase of 65 HP and 131 ft-lbs of torque! Tom’s excitement was very evident when he picked his M2 up and he was beyond thrilled to drive it. Tom joined us on our rally to Snowmass for Automobili Exotica and whipped it around the track with us. His car impressed us all.
