    What turbo timer is best for me

    After a turbo timer. I don't know or have the desire to understand the readouts etc from a timer. I just want it to do it's job with relatively no hassle

    So display and readouts would mean very little to me. With this in mind what is the best unit for me to buy? I am not too fussed about having it on display, but if it were pleasing to the eye where could it be mounted that would look the best and/or most appropriate?

    Looking at a couple, anyone got any opinions as to what would be best?

    If anyone has pics that would be good also, so i can get a few ideas. And links to products that would do the job for me. Thanks everyone

    Thanks for all the info. Have a quick question also. When people let them run to warm up first thing in the morning etc......how does this work?

    Does it start without the key? Do you turn ignition and start car, then turn off to remove key? Or do you have to leave keys in?

    Reason for asking is that i read that if you disengage the handbrake the car cuts out, i would take it that the keys would not be in the ignition during this?

    Cheers

    ***Want to try and avoid ripspeed. Had bad experiences from non educated halfords employees who know even less than i do, yet pretend to be fully qualified auto technicians***

    Lol tell me about it


    Yeah handbrake down cuts it out. U can leave car warm up on cold days etc , in frosteven dimisting windows lolol

    You can take key out

    And as above , no fans do not work with it so just ensure you leave. It after fans cut out. And your laughng. Mines only set to 40 secs and drive it steady up to home time
