99 E300 T/D upgrade?

Are there any performance upgrade for this car? A chip or exhaust? My friend has this car & sooner or later I WILL buy this diesel, so I will make him mod his ride so I will benifit later!!!!

I'm so evil! This car has all the factory toys! I'm trying to convince him to upgrade his turn signal mirros to the latest year & rear tale lights!

Brabus has a cool IFI diesel module that boosts performance
on this model. They go good, I had one with the speedo pegged
at 160. I was even getting 15mpg too.
Renntech, Brabus, and AMG can all set you up with exhaust.

I average around 28-29 mpg with my 98 e300td and it gets blowed out once in while. The best I ever averaged on straight hi-ways driving at 70 mph was 36. Still trying to get the 42 mpg those guys got when they tested the car for Star magazine. I understand you can buy the turn signal mirrors from European parts dealers in your cars color.
