Air Intake Temperature (exact in F/C)
Exhaust Gas Temperature
Ignition Timing
RPM/Shift (exact RPMs)
Actual Road Speed
0-60 time
Battery Voltage

It is sold either pre-configured or you can install it yourself
Installation itself is very easy on the F10 platform. Just install the vent
and plug the cable into the OBD port . Shouldn't take longer than 15 minutes

Only thing to note is that on our cars you likely want to move parts from your original vent to the new one (if you opt to have it pre-installed) as the new vent will not have the
chrome slat and the illuminated dial wheel
Oh that's cool. Personally, I don't think that is something that I will use. How do you like the rear-facing fog lights? I was thinking about retrofitting this feature myself.
