Default Dinan Performance Chip?

what do you guys know about Dinan Engineering Performance Chips for legends? i know Dinan is major with BMW's but.. umm

okay here's the story. i recently purchased Telion's chip and now as i am changing out ECU's i see that the one installed says " DINAN" across it. so i open it up and see a sticker on the chip that says dinan engineering performance chip..

any one got info about these chips for legends?

Thanks.

Now hold on B+O give me a chance to think through this. as I recall the DINAN chips didn't change the values in the first half of the maps (The manual tranny side) Now having said that I still am thinking it may be best for you to check to see if the Dinan chip is socketed if it is just tell me the numbers on the ECU and I will send a chip out for it if it is not send it to me and I will chip it and send that and the Dinan chip back. Not that it is better but some people do see value in it because it was one of the original aftermarket chips for the car.
