Hey Paul,

Best of luck with the Special Op, haha.

Can do,

no problem at all.

I suspect FedEx will be the best shipping option.

From my experience they are certainly the most safe and reliable.

Cheers,

for a 100+ bucks difference I'm not fussed.
I just want to talk to peter about the pros and cons about both.

Is the install still going to be 500?

Hey mate,

in that the case I will put you down for a Stage 2 kit.

Have you got Advan's number?

IMHO the only con with regards the Stage 2 (25 row) cooler, is the extra 150 dead Washington's you have to cough up.

If you PM me your mobile number I will have Pete give you a call.

Lastly yes the install cost remains at $500 inc.GST.

Cheers,

JD.

Hey mate,

unfortunately the shipping cost via FedEx is quite substantial.

I would prefer to investigate a less costly alternative before I provide the quote, because "it ain't pretty".

Hi minijet,

whilst we currently do not have 5 purchasers within Aus, I suspect we will have the numbers via members on the US forum, once the Stage 1 & Stage 2 oil cooler kits are completed and ready to ship out.

Feel free shoot me a PM in a couple of weeks if you change your mind.

Cheers.

Hi guys,

following test fitments of our Stage 1 and Stage 2 Earl's oil cooler, we discovered that there is no way to position them ideally to achieve maximum airflow through the core.

Unfortunately if we were to use the original oil coolers we had in mind, they would not be operating at their full efficiency.

As such we have decided to now go with a Setrab core that allows for the most ideal mounting location,

thus maximising the potential transfer of heat from the engine oil.

Here are some pics of the 15 row cooler that will be used in our Stage 1 kit.

Our Stage 2 kit will utilise a 20 row cooler that is of the same width and depth.

FYI,

the brackets and mounting hardware you see are purely just to confirm correct fitment.

The finished brackets will be made of 3mm steel, that has been laser cut and powder coated black.The fasteners etc. will also be of the highest quality and obviously more discreet.

Lastly we have decided to make our Stage 1 kit as affordable as possible, by doing away with the external thermostat and associated hardware, that we have in our Stage 2 kit.

As a result the 15 row core kit will be significantly cheaper than our original pricing and very much aimed at those guys who are on an "entry level" budget.

Hey minijet,

that is not Peter's fault, that is my oversight!

Peter gave me your contact details when I was last at Advan, but I misplaced them, I do apologise.

Please shoot me a PM with your mobile number and I will give you a call before lunch time tomorrow, as I will be at Advan sorting out a few details.

FYI,

the revised Stage 1 kit will retain the use of the BMW OE thermostat.

I thought I should mention that now,

just in case you were of the belief that the kit would operate without a thermostat, in the oil line to the cooler.

Cheers,

JD.

Hey Tim,

not a problem at all.

We plan to have the 1 Series kits squared away by the end of January.

So come late Feb, we will be able to supply either the Stage 1 or Stage 2 kit without delay.

Cheers,

JD.

Why don't you post the price for those who just want the oil cooler option with and without the lower thermo.

Hey minijet,

the final cost of the Stage 1 kit was not going to be simply determined by the cost of the thermostat.

We have been waiting on final pricing of the -10 oil housing adapter and the bracket fabrication.

Now that we have both we can calculate our revised group buy price.

To be honest guys,

I think you would be quite surprised how small the profit margin is on these kits.

Pete would love to be making more of a buck on the R&D he has put into this, he is running a business after all.

However our goal is to make available to the marketplace products of the highest quality, that are also affordable and truly excellent value for money.

Cheers,

JD.

Hi,

that's cool as my comments with regards profit margins etc. were in no way directed at you personally, "To be honest guys..."

Peter is correct in that you will not require the PWR rad' if you have no intention of ever tracking the car.

The cost of the Stage 2 kit with lower stat' (less the PWR rad') will be $1,000 inc.GST, this excludes installation.

I do apologise for taking quite a while to get back to.

It's my bad as I have been attempting to drum up some interest on the US forums, so our GB prices can happen for all you local guys.

Hi guys,

I just wanted to reiterate that the fantastic GROUP BUY prices we are currently offering, were intended to be "Pre-delivery" only.

Given that we are looking to have the 135i kits completed by the end of January, we may continue the GB throughout the first half of Feb.

However once the GB period has expired, the cost of the ADVAN Performance, N54 "Complete Cooling Solution" will be as follows:

- The Stage 1 kit that features a 15 row "Setrab" oil cooler & "PWR" radiator will be available for $1,795.00

- The Stage 2 kit that features the 20 row "Setrab" oil cooler & "PWR" radiator will be available for $2,145.00

Once again this will be exclusive of shipment or installation for you local guys.

As you can see the "Pre-delivery" discount we are offering for both the Stage 1 & Stage 2 kits, is quite substantial and to the tune of $350 Aus.
