I love this car – stock looking from the outside, this E92 M3 has a potent Dinan S3-R package that completely changes the power dynamic of this already thrilling car.
Starting with a new 2011 M3, a full Dinan S3-R package was installed by BMW Seattle and still retains the full factory warranty. Its quite an expensive package that runs roughly $40k for parts excluding labor but is complete by increase handling as well as increase power.
With the Dinan S3-R kit – power is increased to 527hp and 407lb-ft of torque without the use of forced induction! Past Dinan cars were supercharged to create extra power but I like how they kept this one naturally aspirated even though its more expensive to obtain hp using this method.
The base of the build is a bored and stroked long-block with an increased displacement to 4.6L. Dinan uses a billet crankshaft, lightweight forged pistons and connecting rods and finally balance and blueprints the internals to ensure optimal performance.
The M3 comes with individual throttle bodies from the factory but the S3-R ITBs are larger in diameter increasing air-flow and benefits from a high-flow carbon fiber intake.
Handling is improved with Dinan’s coilover suspension that works with BMWs Electronic Damper Control (EDC) and allows the driver to change the ride firmness on the fly. Adjustable camber plates allow a wider range of adjustments to be set for track or street use.
This M3 was already ordered with the competition package and has the popular Interlagos Blue exterior that was originally exclusive to the E46 M3 ZCP. This M3 has just 23k miles on the odometer and the seller is looking to get $69k for it, while a lot of money for a E92 M3 – the Dinan S3-R package incredible power increase almost quantifies its cost.
