Has anyone done this? I found wiring is the easy part from this DIY article:


But i'm unsure of where to mount the optional display unit:


I would have installed it next to my headlight switch, but the knob control for the delayed headlight option is there like so:


I was thinking of flushing it into the credit card din, or ashtray. Not to many options.

Any ideas?

I'll take pics later, but there is a DIY in audiworld I think that shows how to hook it up to a oem switch.

I have it mounted up near my rearview mirror with the cable then running around the windscreen down to the fuse box and another wire to a switc next to he hazard light. works really great aside from the white telephone cable sticking out near the rear view mirror. :)
