    The product comes with the option of using remotes, or a hard wired switch.
    If you go with the hard wired switch you have to make your own loom and feed it inside the cabin.

    I will admit I got half way through doing and wished I hadn't started, but I persevered and the end result is spot on.

    I will warn you it is an absolute bitch, especially if you want to do it so it looks like it has always been part of the car.
    Unfortunately there is nothing that I can photograph, other than the Switch that is in place of the Cigar Lighter in the Ash Tray, is it's all concealed and hidden from view.

    The installation of the Controller Unit itself is a fairly straight forward job.
    I think you will fond a few videos on You Tube from others that have done it.

    And yes, it does come with 2 Remotes.

    Have done this mod on my 430
    Switch is set onto a piece of carbon where the factory ash tray was hence leaves the cigarette lighter socket free.

    By contrast I have the key ring thing on my 599 and having a switch is way better and worth the extra work.

    Well, my reasoning was the Cigar Lighter had never been used, and I will never use it. So why not make use of essentially a redundant feature !
    The illumination part of the Cigar Lighter has been retained and functions as normal.

    If for some reason it has to be returned to stock I can simply reverse what I did.

    Great work. Looks like a plan. Presumably the controller works with both the remote and the switch at the same time.

    I think I'll give it a go.

    Thank you

    You have to choose one or the other at the point of installation. It's explained in the instructions, which I believe you can download.
    Although if you choose remote to start with you can change it over if you decide to go hard wired at a later date.
    Or visa versa !

    & got the tips higher after quite some fiddling, its an awesome exhaust especially when coming down through the gearbox.

    Tackleberry, your vacuum lines come down inside the panel ?

    Great you like it I love mine and having had it on for a few years now absolutely zero issues. The range of movement recorded on the sliding section really reinforces how the stock system and derivatives of it are never going to be fit for purpose. Having said that I think this system is worth it alone for the weight reduction and lowering of the C of G. Given this weight reduction is all from the very rear of the car there is no downside IMHO

    Super, jolly good show Richard.

    As I remember my lines are indeed inside and well out of view.

    thks, I went on my first long run yesterday (got interrupted as bought a GT3 RS) and after a while one of my valves stopped working, with no apparent source until further investigation revealed that the plastic joint in the vacuum lines had melted slightly and blocked itself. Frankly its dumb that this is plastic and I replaced it with small copper pipe. My vacuum lines have also been rerouted down the back of the rear panel behind the tail lights
