It's wired directly to the OBDII Steve so feeds off the cars computer and there is a Switch if it needs to be turned off when the Engine is running :thumleft:

As I said to Nick (13Black) earlier, will take some photo's in the dark later as Cameras don't do it justice in the Daylight :!:

Just read through some of your thread, that's a long shopping list for your GT86! I take it power/handling isn't your thing?

I did some early forced induction development on the FA20 platform 5 or 6 years ago - probably still have some bits somewhere!

Had the car Re-Mapped but just couldn't justify the cost on fitting a Turbo or Supercharger to the car, which is one of the many reasons why I not done that :!:

There is nothing wrong with the handling so why change something that isn't broken :arrow: and have driven 45 Track Days in this car :shock:

Wasn't criticising your car chap! I had one of the first Sprintex superchargers in the country and I can categorically recommend not ever buying one :)

Have you got the later rear anti-roll bar? (16mm) - if not that's a fantastic upgrade on a standard suspension car. You can pick them up for peanuts from standard WRX hatchback Imprezas (not the STI though).

Recently had Whiteline KBR38 Rear Brace - sway bar mount supports fitted to the car that certainly improved the way the car handles at the back =D>

Having had a Toyota Auris on Loan from Motorline Gatwick this week I have grown to like the car :shock: Anyway there is an all New Model coming out at the end of the year which looks quite nice :P

I will be more interested in the New 2.0lt 180ps Hybrid Engine that replaces the old 1.8lt and would prefer an Estate Car :twisted:
