I can confirm that it does fit, however it requires extensive trimming to unnecessary plastic shrouding on the car. The bracket used to hold the Setrab core is designed for the M sport bumper so it sits flush against the inside of the M sport bumper. The Performance bumper has a slightly different shape to it but it still works and looks great.

We've been seeing 38+ degree celsius quite a bit the past few weeks and the temps are always in check. Haven't been to any track days in a while but never had any issues when I was there. The core does take a beating due to it's mounted location so it will show signs of wear depending on how you use the car and where you drive etc. It does hold up pretty well though.

Instead of using the left-side cooler for cooling the ATF, would it be possible to utilize it for cooling the radiator coolant (secondary radiator)?

We had a few stinking hot days here not long ago. My car was giving temp readouts of 46-48 degrees celsius and I never saw over 115 degrees for my oil temp. I was only putting around between 8-12 psi but I did give it a few pulls every now and again. This setup definitely works. Highly recommended if you're a track junkie or live in Australia where we see some of the harshest environmental conditions. It's basically summer here 9 months of the year.

I originally wanted the Advan but couldn't get a firm price and shipping quote to the US so I went with Stett
I still have not installed it since they do not provide install instructions
I didn't feel like DIY fitting over a grand worth of parts so in a box it sits

buyer remorse = me

It shouldn't take more than a couple of hours at a reputable workshop. Or you can always have a go at doing it yourself if you follow the various DIY online. If you do I recommend taking the entire front bar off to gain complete access.

this is my personal experience, after 4 months or so, every fitting connected to the hose were leak, and one of the line have internal leak, so i end up replaced all the fitting and hoses, due to the fitting only for use once!! it was a pain in the ass and a huge mess!!
