Just got my second Defi BF through and took a look at how to cable them with the Control Unit. Discovered that only the Control Unit has a Meter Cable of a length anywhere near being useful :rant: Both the meters have a Meter Cable 25cm, which is only of any use if they were all mounted right next to each other :rolleyes: :annoyed:

So I've got to buy a separate Meter Cable to get them both working...

Also, where do people locate the Control Unit?

Nicely i have seen them in the armrest pocket or just below radio. i think personally i wouldn't have it on view or else screw it on below the steering wheel. At the bottom flat bit near before the pedals..

yeah you need to buy an 1 or 2mtr defi link cable if you plan to mount the controller anywhere away from next to your first guage. This is what I had to do. I couldn't remember the cost of the cable as I had a friend pick it up from Japan when he went on a parts smuggling mission for me :D

I've made my own. Amazing what you can do with a length of speaker cable, wire cutters, a soldering iron and shrink wrap... :D

well if you have all the guages together (as most cars do) the 25cm cable is sufficient and the 1metre usually reaches to the Control unit.
most ppl have it all around the centre of teh car,but wanting to utilise my jdm a-pillar i had one guage there and the other 3 in the vents
