Dinan Coilovers?

Has anyone gotten these or heard anything about them? Are they partnered with someone or made in house?

Dinan is like the APR of BMW. They're owned by the same private equity firm (driven performance brands) and their stuff is top notch. I did not realize Dinan made coilovers for the MK6.

Who's to say if the shock damping is different, but the components look identical to the Solo Werks coilovers:
(sourced from the same manufacturer?)

Versus Dinan's "entry level" (they say) coilovers:

Looks very interesting. Appears to be well priced as well.

for $200 more you can get BC's which include front strut mounts, sway-bar links, camber adjustment on the front, and dampening adjustment on all 4 corners.
