Thumbs Up Rear View Mirror AEM Gauge Integration for HPF M3's

I have never been crazy about having the gauges mounted on the steering column and I have yet to see another gauge setup I liked. I'm sure most have seen the Valentine radar detectors installed in the rear view mirror. I decided to try to figure out a way to get my A/F and Boost Gauges installed in my mirror. I've been working on this almost every day for the last couple of months, getting the gauges to fit inside the mirror housing, power on properly, automatically adjust brightness for day/night and achieve a factory appearance was not easy.

Then there was the issue of the SES light staring at me since the pods no longer hide it from view. I disabled the light so it no longer illuminates, this was a lot easier than I thought and will post a DIY if anyone else wants to do it.

I am very happy with the outcome. Here's a few pics and a video.





With the gauges shut off they are not visible through the mirror.



Once the led's are illuminated the only thing you see are the lights moving. This looks a lot better than the Valentine mirrors I've seen.
