Awesome!

I'm not very edumacated when it comes to the N54, so I guessing it will just be a different connector kit you send out for the N55 instead of the N54 kit.

Either way, as long as it fits and works, your alls price can't be beat and I have heard great things about the products!

I wish they would be in Europe for same price like US.

I think this is best intercooler option on the market right now.

Shipping prices shouldn't be THAT bad as long as you can ship to CONUS locations, right?

Or were you meaning something else?

The connectors are actually the same, it's the charge pipe that's different. The N55 requires a different lower charge pipe to bolt onto the existing chargepipe.

Shoot us a PM with your address & I'll let you know how much shipping will cost

We generally lower customs values to accommodate the buyer and shipping generally tends to be pretty reasonable overseas

Is the design change to the end tanks going to increase performance, or what was the purpose of the end tank re-design? Thank you.

It'll be a one piece end tank with built in connector/inlets. This provides a seamless transition from the connector to the end tank without any welds/grinding. This allows a smoother transition from the piping to the intercooler which a lot of our competitors do not offer.

While there is a performance benefit, it's mostly for aesthetic, production and ease of installation benefit.

Alright, sorry to keep asking questions, but now I am a bit confoosed.

Lower Charge pipe? Are we talking about the plastic piece that connects to the main charge pipe? I just upgraded to an ER charge pipe, that's not the piece we're talking about right Tiago?

That's correct, the piece that goes from the intercooler to the main chargepipe that connects to the throttle body

Feel free to ask as many questions as you have! I'm more than happy to answer them.

Looks good on the E9x, do you have any pics of the 135i fitment? I checked the linked threads and the closest I saw was a 1M.

These are scheduled to arrive back in stock in 4-5 weeks. Both the 5" & 7" versions will be in stock in 2.75" connector form!

I'll post some pics up of the revised 2.75" ID end tanks later today!
