    We installed the first pulsar in a Countryman this morning. The install is straight forward and pretty easy. I will be posting install instructions with photos by Monday.

    We also created a template for development of a Glovebox Tidy. The gbT will allow the owners manual to sit on the bottom and then you will have a shelf for other items. The air valve and USB port are not affect and will still be 100% available

    It makes the 3rd brake light blink for 3sec or 6sec or all the time that the brake pedal is depressed.

    That's why you use one. To make the distracted driver behind you see you are stopping.

    Drives me crazy too. But not crazier than having to fix the rear of my car because some texting, cell phone talking or otherwise distracted driver didn't see I was stopping. Both of my MINI's have a pulsar and I'm in on the group buy here to get one for the daughter's Camaro! She'll have a MINI soon enough. And it'll have a pulsar on it too!

    Just when I think I almost have all the mods I need, along comes something else I had not thought of. :D

    A GoMINIGo 3rd Brake Light Flasher was one of my very first mods too, that and hard wiring a V1. I know it's saved my ass from the marauding pickups that dominate the TX roads.

    Sounds like your order was close to mine.. Yes the V1 hard wired has saved me from more than I care to count. The new Flasher has the ability to go 4 or 6 flashes and the ability to choose if it goes of every time :cornut: or if in stop and go traffic it will go off the first time and then will work normal until it has time to reset. I like that city traffic tends to get out from behind me after a couple of brake apps

    Had a guy following me once with my pulsing brake light going off constantly in traffic. We both pulled in to get gas and he said to me "that flashing brake light is really obnoxious...where can I get one"
