If you’ve got a passion for numbers and really want to outdo your friends when talking about your car down the pub, this gauge from Manhart Racing will be right up your street.
It replaces the air vents on the centre of the dashboard and looks just like the original equipment does
It plugs into the car’s electronics, decrypts the information and gives the owner a whole wealth of extra information that isn’t normally available.
Things like 0-62mph figures, the top speed, 0-125mph statistics, power output, maximum torque, oil temperature, water temperature and even the amount of G-Force when cornering.
It’s available for selected BMW 1 Series, 3 Series, X5 and X6 models and isn’t cheap, but high-end gadgets rarely are. It works with both petrol and diesel versions, with prices ranging from £845 inclusive of VAT to £1,849.
The gauge can be ordered by mail order, or fitted at Auto Enhance’s workshop based in Romford, Essex.
