    Has a few more useful functions than the DIS. I know it doesnt work with the 8Ps yet, maybe they should design it being displayed through the RNS-E :)

    Very cool product! Unfortunately the company only plans to have a CAN version ready around mid-2009. So bit of a wait

    A friend of mine has the PLX (http://www.plxdevices.com/products/dm200obd/) on his S3 and it works well. Among all the data it can display the only missing one is the boost.

    I like the LCT because I prefer not to close one of the air vents, but I have come across some not really satisfied people when I browsed the internet searching for infos...

    That is quite smart! HPA offered this with my R32 turbo but it cost a bomb. This seems far more reasonable.
    I may need to check if it really does cover the 2009 S3 white DIS though, despite it saying NEW: added support for 2009 2.0 TFSI/TDI engines.

    It was about 5 seconds at a guess, the FT450 is quoted at 4.3 seconds. it was 3rd gear and up that ripped!

    Yeah the LCT sounded interesting but also heard a lot of bad experiences and reviews especially from GTI owners. Seems it didnt work properly for many functions and wasnt what it was all cracked up to be

    Try 100 unhappy forum members, who took part in the beta testing, most of whom still have outstanding claims against the company, which apparently is some PO Box in Las Vegas. Charming!
