This has been in development with a team of engineers and designers for over 3 months... and now its time to announce the product, as I am only moments away from ordering the first production batch! (which takes only 4-6 weeks to be made!)

just straight, because I didnt want to have to hack up the internals, since the current design allows for no cutting, and complete reversablility.

EDIT: actually, its not straight, its slightly towards the driver, because the molded protective foam rubber on the insde that re-directs airflow away from the gauge and protects from heat/cold/condensation.

Rix that looks absolutely fantastic! I like the integrated look so much better on this design and I am very much looking forward this upgrade soon!

On a side note, can we purchase another vent so we would still have the vent control and do whatever hack was needed to the spare unit?

Thanks!

the control to open and close the vent still works, but you can give that a try if you want, it would probably be possible... I am just not looking to have to buy OEM parts.

Find me a process to flash the iDrive, the source for the iDrive software, a development environment, and the applicable compiler then I'll get right on it....

however, in the meantime RiX's new boost gauge is perfect!
