JHP Gauge Pod

I have ordered the JHP gauge pod for my 05 M6. Problem is, I ordered it about a month and a half ago (JHP originally told me 8-20 days). I was told backorder is the problem. Anybody else having this problem? For those who already have the pod installed, what are your impressions and do others comment on it in your car?

JHP gauges

Took me a month and a half to recieve my pod. Came packaged well, and quality was very nice. I have an o05 and install was easy. I did not have to take out he radio. The wire hook up was down on right side. I used a wire hanger. The wire bundle had some small white tape holding it. I was able to take a wire hanger and hook the wire bundle. Gently pull the wire bundle up and out, plug in the back. Biggest pain was cutting out the section that JHP recommends.

Gauges look great!! Any questions shoot me a PM.

Be careful with the glass lenses. I have read that they scratch easy!!!!!!

Use lens paper to clean.

Yep. Mine are on backorder too. I hope I get them before the snow melts around here.

I don't understand why this section needs to be removed.

On my '05, I fed the cable and plug up thru one of the openings at the front (the one on the driver's side, I think), nearest the windshield. Just before I snapped the plate and gauges into place, I could see under the back edge of the plate that there wouldn't be any interference with the plug and cable.

I didn't cut anything.

No problems with my order took about a week but I did have to cut the hard plastic piece. Was a breeze with dremel tool & only cut a small section.

Maybe I am missing something. I routed the wire through the hole on the drivers side closest to the windshield and it appeared to have no interference. It looks and works fine. Ohwell. I guess time will tell.
