Congrats!
Photos please.
Looks like you love your cars - this one won't disappoint.
Pads, discs, braided lines were a good starting point, and centre resonator delete if it's not already done.

Ah lunar grey is an awesome colour

 

Also demon tweeks, ktec racing are reputable online stores but shipping usually kills you. There is often sometimes some on eBay.

+1 on Koya, I’m sure he’d ship to you, really great product.

Also, consider taking the foam out of your airbox, that’ll give you a lot more induction sound.

My 250 was tuned by ETuners by the previous owner in Melbourne and runs really well, roughly 200wkw, also had a downpipe and intake at the time of tune. He tells me it would give alot of cars a run for their money on a roll

any recommendations on cold air intakes?

a lot of guys are saying there isn’t much except pod filter ones which defeat the purpose as a lot of heat from back of engine bay.

@jim60t did a great writeup on a DIY ITG style induction kit. Feeds air in from behind the front bumper:
