    Just talked to Neal at Daytona Beach, my sister was there and handed him her phone, he said everything seems to be on track as far as the time line, just doing a lot of real world testing, the Elgin dash will be standard and a list of options will be coming out soon. All so mentioned something about a paddle shifter. Options will all be sold separately, not in a package.

    Sister took some pics. will try to figure out how to get them on this post when I get them.

    I'm all about unique, but the Elgin dash is one of the worst things I've ever seen. From what I've seen on the forums, I'm not alone in that opinion. I hope and pray that there's alternative that isn't outrageously priced. Hopefully the Elgin dash isn't their way of 'forcing' a large majority of customers to purchase a pricey instrument panel option.

    I could live with that no problem.. Used to round gauges and like the look plus easy to see day or night if done right..

    This is something I definitely feel I need to see in person to judge. If I base my opinion on the pictures I would say no way. I need to know I can see and read the gauges in daylight and at night. I'm willing to hold judgement until then. Z

    I did not care for the Elgin dash as presented however there is still plenty of time to work on it. I will reserve judgement until I see the final version installed in the car.
