Defi gauges/Macht Schnell Guage Panel/AIB's/Carbon Trim Wrap

Got these new goodies installed last night:

1. Defi Advance CR Boost, Oil pressure and Water Temp gauges 52mm
2. Defi Control Unit
3. Macht Schnell Gauge panel, covered in leather by IND
4. Matt Carbon wrap trim film
5. VT2 600 upgrade (88mm pulley and new software flash)
6. AIB's

The Defi gauges are top quality and very accurate.

The control unit allows you to install this behind the glove compartment and then have all sensor inputs connecting to it. Then only one wire connects to the first gauge, and short wires then connect the other gauges in series.

You can record the date and then play back the 3 minute recording and the gauge replays the memory of the data.

They are aluminum and match the OEM instruments perfectly. They also illuminate White with a red ring around the gauge.

AIBs installed and look really cool

The Matt carbon fabric wrap was done in about an hour and looks 100% like OEM, a must

Cheers.

Actually pretty easy. The film is a cloth backing so it goes on very easily. I didn't mess up one panel. Got about half left over what we thought would be necessary.

Probably dangerous as I will be tempted to stick it somewhere else

go Defi. They are the best IMO and I researched like crazy for about three months. In fact I revived tighties thread on boost gauges 3 months ago.

Defi costs about 250 each plus control unit 250 so all in all $1350 with cladded gauge panel.
