I was looking at Pictures on a web site of SELS and saw one with a dash that I have never seen before. It seems to have a trip computer. When was this an option and how would I go about locating one. Can you tell I am a little obcessed with my car? I mean who else sits home in front of the computer on the internet looking at thousands of 126s all day?lol

Always,

Jessie O.

Do a search for this... Its been talked about I believe in the last month. There are a bunch of wirings and computer boxes involved besides the instrument cluster and console switches/wood. For a DIY.. it would run around $600 to get all the necessary parts. Its a rare item, but turn up sometimes on German ebay. You probably won't find it in the US as this was only for Euro cars. Also, the trip computer measures in KM... so unless you're familiar with the Euro way of measuring milage (Liters/100km) and KMH, it might not serve you any good. It looks cool, mainly because not many cars have them.

When/if you find one my understanding is that installing it is Quite the pain.

Better off finding a car that came w/ it from the factory.
