    Expensive way of buying some cable, a pot and some zip ties.

    Beside that - £14.99 is alot of money for total pointless crap

    Yep,

    Don't think many people will be drilling holes, cutting cables, etc, etc, in their £25K car to fit that.

    If they did though, perhaps we could sell them some of that performance air as well.

    it looks like someone found in a tatty old electrical shop and have been racking their brains on what to use it on.
    i cant see that working, thats like giving a coalminer a toothpick to dig a tonne of coal.

    It's just the ebay resistor mod (which don't work), but done with a variable resistor and a knob from a Tandy closing down sale.

    You'd be better off spending your hard earned cash on +20bhp led washer jets.

    what makes me laugh is reading these peoples feedback and seeing that people have not only bought this junk but they are disappointed when it does sod all

    Most of the feedback only rates the guys service, not the product. Posting crap out quickly to numpties is very easy (and rewarding by the looks of it)

    Plus it was only £9.99 a few days ago - £5 increase
