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

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

@Seriouslylotus

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

Mark

Mark you may be best giving Greg at RRR a call as I think he deals in AIM dash and he’s very good...

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 ?
