Lookin good Tom and glad to see an ESS S/C installed on the shop car!

Love the multi-functional gauge, but not sure if I would be able to give up the air vent! Any options to pull apart and relocate the screen?

AC location only. Interior is plenty cool enough on the street with the remaining 3 vents.

It could. It was a simply a loaner slapped on for the event.

Definitely needed the additional venting over aesthetics.

I have seen this mod in person as well. I think it needs its own thread

its very innovative and I think its one of the coolest mods I had seen in a while for our cars.

Looking forward to seeing this part evolve!

Good decision on the kit, sounds like it has worked out well for you on the track. I really like the location of the sensors in the velocity stack, this location should give you very accurate data. The new gauge setup is also sick.

Keep up the good work Tom.

This is the "gotta have it" item for boosted M3s in 2013. Locals have seen a sneak peek of this at the track and at our facility.

More info coming later today.
When can we buy this!

There's non-SC versions available as well.
