    Default Vxr dials mod...?

    A specific vxR feature...
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tr59-...e_gdata_player

    Anyone ever got ahold of a set of Vxr dials and replaced their originals to do this? Or is there existing hardware already installed requiring only software updates or tampering to enable this feature?

    If so would it work in my v6 Turbo?

    I believe they work in any Vectra, but obviously it has to be a petrol for the rev counter to work properly...

    The Happylightshow is very easy to install, because it's only being put on the diagnostic link connector (DLC)! Please download the "setup procedure description" and the "mounting guidelines description" as *.pdf file under "description". To download the right file, you have to take a look on the back side of your Happylightshow. You find there a number with your Software Version.
