    Hi.
    Was just watching a vid on youtube, where a foreign s3 (8l) had battery voltage, boost, oil temp etc shown on his dash.
    it was in the bit which shows the radio station etc.
    Is this available in the uk??

    WOAH!.
    I think ill live with just having the radio station displayed for that price... Wonder why the EFu one uses separate sensors when it can get most the readings from the obd port.

    Yeah the liquid ones use OBD port. But then I suppose they have to make a unit that will interact with the system to do so. I wouldnt trust electronic sensors for measuring boost. I would like a boost gauge in my car, just to see how turbo is behaving, but I think it would ruin the interior.
