All three projects look brilliant. I can't wait to see what pricing comes out to.

Does that SI board connector interface cause any gaps between the gauge faces and the front half housing? There is not much clearance there. Having gaps will allow white lights from the incandescent indicators to illuminate onto the gauge faces at night.

No, it is a flush fit with PCB thickness 1.6mm, I thank german engineers for that

Products look really good so far, but I don't have much use for a shift light, regardless of how well thought out it is, or how slick the pickup is.

The digital gauge on the other hand, would be great to cut back on big ugly gauges for a clean turbo setup. I'd love to see more of these sort of items.

Final tests of shiftlights are under way. There's a lot of stuff that can go wrong.
If everything goes as expected, we will announce the first batch sometime next week.

Video update...calibration. I suggest that you watch it in HD directly on YT.
Threshold for first LED and step can be custom set prior to shipping.

Can you make the shift light able to be switched off so it doesn't always have to be used?

This, as soon as I saw the you tube video I wanted this bad. But I was thinking tonight that could be annoying when just cruising around, especially at night. But seriously this is a cool piece of kit.

Damn you 5 speed swap, it can't come soon enough.

Used correctly it would be adjusted so that the first light didn't come on until you were close to your shift point. IE, it would never light up until you wound the engine out.
