    Just been talking to 'Jim' whos developing these kits and is making a square vent system for leons / golfs and s3's. I think the fact it shows boost pressure is deffo worth buying as boost guages aint cheap any way!!

    I met the chap last month, was nice guy who has developed them in his spare time.

    I need to find out what vag.com format my car uses in order for it to work on my car.

    Good news fella's, I got a reply from Jim today and this is what he said:

    We are developing a new rectangular version which will be easier to fit in to a range of square vents.

    I am also working with NEV from seatcupa.net who will work on a range of fitting versions.

    See his handywork here http://www.seatcupra.net/forums/showthread.php?t=154545&highlight=nev+pod

    Cheers
    Jim

    Will suggest a group buy, if it looks OEM, as I am very interested....

    I'd be keen to see what the rectangular one looks like, I have a Greddy Informeter which practically does the same thing apart from read boost pressure, which is annoying.

    Fyi: I have suggested a possible group buy for us all once the item is perfected, and if inflation and petrol prices have not hit the roof by then...lol

    Good item, haven't been this excited since the armrest... ;-)

    Think thats alright as jim said it reads all vagcom codes which would cost about £120 for a vag lead, then youd have a boost guage to buy etc etc!!! deffo up for buying one when there ready. The pics he sent are on works computer so ill post em up when im behind my desk!!!

    Reason im buying it for the vag scanning as i have problems with a dodgy n249 valave and a 'pressure drop' so i can scan it on board and keep an eye on my boost pressure!!! Think all the other functions are just gadgets... ie, you dont need em but damn, there cool. Who ever needed a g meter or 0-60 timing?? lol

    A G-Meter in an S3. That will be useful. Does it cancel the fault codes and does it read all faults?

    Jim says it reads all fault codes and clears them, only shows numbers reffering to the fault and not written text like vagcom. He says theres a booklet that comes with it referenced to all the faults, so itll be a case of looking it up!!! easy peasey to do though i imagine

    As I said Scott, just keep me updated with developments or if you would like me to take the lead just let me know, although it appears you have a good rapport developed with him. (My scottish accent and roots might just sway the 10% deal though..lol)

    This looks excellent, I'm definately up for getting one! I've been looking for a boost gauge for a while but this looks much better and does plenty more!

    I'll definately keep an eye out for a group buy!
