Haha lol I can jack your thread now :P
I'm actually sourcing the performance intercooler alone from Germany. Had too much trouble finding one that would be a good fit but our damn currency is making me pay $770 for it -_-

Luckily it comes with the sticker

Definitely should be. I'll confirm when it arrives, I'm just not sure if it's worth $770

I have been using the diesel from Shell lately, more for convenience than anything else.

Tank before that was Caltex prem diesel

Is the BP Ultimate any good?

Bp ultimate I feel is pretty good on both performance and is supposed to be cleaner. Only felt the effects after 1.5 tanks. The engine does seem quieter.
Am still in the process of checking if it is worth it in mileage. But so far think it's pretty good though the price seems a little higher

BP ultimate is better, feels smoother and you do get a bit more mileage out of a tank. I also have noticed the DPF doesn't go into regen as much maybe once or twice per tank.

I think there's some placebo magic going on here, like when I installed my high flow air intake, the engine sounded way better and the turbo was louder and I got so hyped up I swear I could feel it going a bit faster haha

Haha maybe for BP ultimate diesel feels like its better as the engine seems quieter. BP Ultimate seems just as responsive as the shell extra too but only after 2 tanks no idea why.

Non power wise i still want to do the following;
Install KW coilovers (sitting in garage)
Paint calipers

There weren't any cold air intakes for my car, so I found a kit from the uk for $200 (us prices charged $350) and it litre rally composed of a filter and a bracket to hold the filter. Also, go with a BMC air intake, I hear they're better

Has anyone looked at getting a carbon fiber strut bar? There's a weichers one that looks cool but isn't as expensive as the BMW performance one
