X6 / X6M boost gauge, torque display - experience

Hi,

I just want to share my experience - I got my brandnew digital data display for my X6M yesterday - for X6M it seems to be the first of that kind - they already produced it for 3 series and M3 - but X6 and X5 is new and I am the first ;o)

It is the insidePerformance data display:
http://www.insideperformance.de/onli...26/language/en

perfectly integrated into the interieur - replacing one air vent - it took me 45 minutes to install - and I am not a technical or electric specialist (by far not ;o)
It comes completly pre-mounted into the complete air unit - so I just had to replace the middle air unit 1:1



I will write a short installation instruction if somebody is interested.

Features are great!

As mentioned by insidePerformance, I get all the following data displays:

- boost / charge-air pressure (boost gouge)
- torque
- cooling water temperature
- oil temperature
- voltage
- digital speed (including Vmax)
- acceleration data (0-100 / 0-200 km/h)
- acceleration force and lateral acceleration
- engine power / performance (PS / HP)
- performance and torque diagram
- gas/fuel pressure
- exhaust temperature
- air intake temperature
- gearbox temperature
- lambda before catalysator on bank1 and bank2

All data semm to be absolutly valid - I mesures 562 HP (PS) and 692 Nm of torque

Display is controlled by the stock steeringwheel buttons. I selected the multimedia button for that.

But best of all is the high quality look ;o) Nothing you need - but something you want and like..

What do you think?

That's pretty neat...never heard of that before. I'm not sure I could give up my main AC vent, but that has some nice features.

there is a special price on the release of this product.. so price in europe for me was 1399 euro instead of 1499 euro - but if you order from the US or outside europe you should get additional 19% tax relieve..

I used the following installation instruction - it was really easy (secont post is in english):

Boost gauge and oil temp useful but most of the others are redundant for the layperson, or could be achieved by a 200 buck accelerometer or even a decent satnav. Nice idea but limited market I think.

I agree! Especially in my winters that vent makes the difference when I need heat!

I typically don't run my fans on 100% anyway and usually use he feet/defrost vents I doubt I would even notice a missing vent

Pretty cool for gee-whiz info center, but doubt I could justify the cash for something I probably would rarely use on this type of vehicle.

I just melted a bunch of exhaust components....I wonder if the EGT gauge could have saved me

Is one of the vents completely blocked after the installation or is it still partially functional, i.e. letting some air through?
