Just out of curiousity has anybody wanted or considered adding a heads up display in your tsx? I know a lot of the GM cars, like the vette or most of the pontiacs have it..and it is an option on the BMW's also....

That is the only aftermarket unit I could find... do you know if there are any others?

I would also be interested in finding one that would display the radar settings from the valentine one....

Nah...I'm not a big fan of digital speedo readouts... I driven in a bonniville that had it and it was ok...nothing real spectacular. Did you get a new car yet?

i lost the case in arbritration....the BBB issued an interim repair order.... im still deciding if i should accept or reject it.... he basically said all the problems i was having are not major...except the sunroof, and that a leaking sunroof is a major impairment of use of the vehicle....

if i accept then i cant sue infiniti...and they have 30 days to fix it...if it still leaks then i can go back to the BBB and with my luck he will say give them another chance.... ive already given them 5 opportunities to fix the damn sunroof...im not sure how much more patient i can be with the idiots :'(

no i would not add it. since the speedometer is in front and you can see it. It was to hard to read the numbers, at least with the speedometer you can glance and get your speed

The Defi VSD is a good product, I used to have it in one of my cars. It's highly useful when tracking/racing. Allowing you to concentrate on what's ahead instead of constantly moving around to read the instruments. Works well in daylight and especially well at night. You just have to ensure that the VSD display projection unit is always kept clean for best clarity.

Thanks for the info... very useful. Which one did you have? The basic one or the concept?

How difficult would it be to install it? Thanks :-D

No longer called a concept but yes I had the concept. It's been out for almost 2-3 years now if I'm not wrong. It's not that hard to install if you've worked with finding the usual wiring - RPM, positive, negative, aux etc. But I'll leave it a professional installer (ala car audio type people) if you aren't familiar.

So, I would need the ground, +12v ignition, speed sensor wire, and tach for the rpm's?

Thanks
