Just as Performance Software dramatically changed the world of engine tuning, Shockware will forever change suspension tuning. With the widespread use by BMW of the Electronic Damper Control (EDC) system throughout its most powerful models, Dinan has tuned it for ultimate performance.
Since the introduction of the EDC system, Dinan has embraced the flexibility and performance that can be achieved by a suspension upgrade that leaves the EDC system in place. With the addition of Dinan Shockware, this solution takes another large step forward by also reprograming the damping curve of the damper itself.
The EDC system works by monitoring sensors measuring all aspects of the BMWs behavior then analyzing them and adjusting the actuators in the shock absorbers, which, with the help of magnetic valves change their characteristics in a fraction of a second. Dinan Shockware reprograms the software making the adjustments to respond in a way that would have recently required purchasing a new performance set of dampers, thus drastically reducing the cost of a suspension upgrade.
The suspension mode control switch is fully functional with the setting upgraded for each mode. Every setting has become more performance-based in how it reacts to changing road and driving conditions. The "Comfort" setting is now tuned to be the "Normal" setting, while the "Normal" setting is now tuned to be the "Sport" setting. The big change is when the BMW is set to "Sport" as that is the new Dinan high-performance programing.
Dinan Shockware can be used as a standalone upgrade. However, your BMW performs best when paired with the Dinan Performance Suspension System or any performance spring set.
- Revises BMW’s programming for sportier response from the EDC shocks.
- Approximate changes: Dinan “comfort” = old BMW “normal” / Dinan “normal” = old BMW “sport” / Dinan “sport” = stiffer than all stock settings.
- Best results when used with a Dinan suspension (if available).
