    Hi everyone
    was just parked up in my car and 2 very nice S3's turned up that ive never seen before. I went over for a chat and after talking about the cars one lad had a small electronic gauge fitted in his air vent. I asked him what it was because it was just a blank screen. He turned his car on and showed me.

    He could select loads of different views showing boost pressure, BHP, fault codes that may pop up on the car, all sorts. He told me who made them but in the excitement of seeing something new, ive compleetly forgoten what he said. I think me mentioned racetech, and he said it cost over £200 from what i remember.

    I was wondering if anyone on here might know what it was and where i could find one?

    it was obviously sat inside the air vent, was all digital and the screen was a bit smaller than half an i-phone screen. To look through the menus there was a small black bit that acted like a d-pad.

    Anyone have any ideas. Cheers

    I mannaged to find them on the internet, and your right they are Liquid Guages. They are pretty expensive though, but when i saw one in action they do enough to justify the money i think.
    cheers everyone.
