Due to shipping costs and parts being available only in certain minimum quantities, I have to work on batches.

The previous batch I have produced is about 2 years old, and there might be no new batch before a long time.

So, if you're interested, don't miss the train. :wink:

There have been additional improvements since the last week.
The biggest one is about connectivity : There will be absolutely no soldering job involved for the end user. Mostly plug and play with the original BMW plugs. Maybe just 2 crimp connectors to crush. I still need to decide.

I will leave the list open for one more week (end of next week). After that, I'll have to close it to buy the parts I need.

I take note.

Given the interest on the other side of the big lake, I have to close the pre-orders now.

And I have started to source the components.

For those who are looking for a sensor, here is a picture showing what you need to search :

It must have 5 wires. If it looks different, don't buy it.

Please don't worry about the lack of updates.
I'm encountering a few personal issues, that prevent me from working as fast as I would like to...

Received mine at the end of last week - looks great! Won't be fitting it just yet as I haven't sourced a switch, but the item itself and the instructions to fit it look to be of high quality.
Thanks again Laurent for doing this!
