Anyone bought and fitted one of these direct from the manufacturer.

If so, does it pass all the regs required to be a road legal device with all the warning lamps, mileage etc. I will drop AIM a line to see, but hopefully someone here can help. There must also be some work involved as KT are selling at circa 4000euros, while from AIM they come in at aroune 1000, a big difference.

thanks

I've found the AiM MXS to be a great replacement for the stock instrument cluster in the V6.   I like having the additional info/data  displayed in real time on the dash; and, perhaps more importantly

Sorry, I can't help you as my car is track-only, so I didn't need to worry about airbag, parking brake, etc., icons/idiot lights.    AiM was able to create a CupR ECU driver/protocol with some co

Hi mate, After a total lack of feedback from AIM over questions I had, I went and ordered a GARW. Delivery due in December sometime...   cheers Mark

Simple answer is NO it doesn't

As the dash takes a few seconds to 'wake up' the ABS check light at ignition on is missed

When i used an AIM dash in my S2 we wired in an LED for this purpose. One other solution is to have a timed relay connected into the door light switch, so when the door is opened it triggers the dash to be awake, unril the ignition is on

Some of the price difference by KT will be the programming/set up time and also the adaptor loom to make it fit

Thanks Dave,

Apart from the ABS is there anything else that would be an issue?

I found a thread earlier this morning on here and I’ll give that a good read this evening.

cheers

RRR have been super helpful in my dealings with them so far. They sell AIM products and also ECUMaster. They recommended the ECUMaster ADU dash to me over the AIM so that is what I am getting fitted.

Unsure if this answers your question bud

It does seem a very good bit of kit but the fascia isn't as classy as the AIM... but given it seems a more ootb solution when going down the ECU Master route its not a bad shout!

So pinged Aim re wiring. Aside from the Can Bus I think I will need 14 hard wired signals to replicate the existing dash alarms, plus say 5 analogues. The attached PDF file shows what I think I need to replicate what I have, while the image represents the AIM connections. Any information appreciated.

 

thanks

Interesting. Please share your feedback 😀 Did they have experience with this device installed on V6 ? why they recommend ECUMaster instead of AIM ?

@geartox we recommed the Ecumaster ADU dash as it is just a step above the AIM in terms of flexibility and customization. If you check out RRR Engineering or Ecumaster UK on Facebook you can see the different displays we set up for the Exige. But essentially you can design whatever you want, wherever you  want it and whenever you want it to show!

 I have contacted GARW website last year for few questions (compatibility with IPS gearbox...) , I never got an answer 😅 

Regarding Aim, I know a guy in Switzerland who sells and knows quite well the AIM products. He should be able to speak english http://racing-data.com/index.php/contact/

Let us know what do you think about the garw :)
