Love that noise, makes me miss mine, what you need is a full race Aim dash!

I have one I really should sell, the last bit of my old S2 :(
Trying to convince myself that I don’t need sequential
In my life first .

If your car is used on the road do NOT fit a sequential
Great on track when pushing on
Terrible for steady road driving
Speaking from real experience, on a car with proper ECU controlled gear changes!

Transmission shunt when at very very low loads. OK when pushing but as soon as you drive at a legal pace they are sh*te
Also the service intervals are pretty low
Its your money and your car but for the road it would be a mistake IMHO

My Caterham has a Sadev sequential which is absolutely amazing,...on circuit, which is fine because it’s a track-only car. Pulling gears and hard on the brakes smashing down through the box on a sequential never gets boring on circuit.

But,... I echo all the things Dave said, they only do flat-out and I have no desire whatsoever to use it on the road it would be horrible. They can also go wrong and it is VERY expensive (I have experience of this).

No no no
Keep the dash and then add a car to it!!

Just sadly not affordable, the Elise is a great Sunday car, and the Clio is the most I'm currently prepared to spend on a track car, my track time is currently too limited to make it worth investing any more, oh and the dash won't work in the Clio :(

I am in the fortunate place that I have a second car. And a chauffeur in said second car. She is called Wife.
