Burkhart Data Display AK-Motion Review

I preordered this unit before my 2020 hit the dealership.

I had it installed along with several other performance and cosmetic items.

I primarily got this so I can monitor Intake and Exhaust Gas Temps, open or close the exhaust flap anytime, and a slew of other important measurements.

https://burkhart-engineering.com/epa...Products/54486

I took a chance on this over the Awron Display which retails for at least $700 more than the AK unit.

Its easy to use, and displays all kinds of useful data which can be customized. The only negative I saw was the directions to install it are in German. The dealership I work at had no trouble installing it in 2 hrs.

Directions: http://wiki.ak-motion.com/index.php/en/user-manual


I'll snap some pics of the screens tomorrow along with the cockpit and exterior mods.

I emailed them a while back about converting to American units, is this still an issue or it's possible to convert now?

My unit can be setup Euro or US units.

Simple to setup, not sure where you thought it was euro only?

AK Motion Data Display

Was wondering if anyone had installed this:

https://shop.ecd-performance.de/en/d...lation-03-2013

It seems like the Awron one has been discontinued, so this is all I can see for the M2. Useful or waste of money in your opinion? The graphics look dated but I thought it would be cool to have all the info while driving.

HZ101 I installed the AK Motion before taking delivery back in July.

Its been awesome. I'm still working out a few bugs with it since I have May built 2020 M2C. I'm assuming that's why I can't clear codes with it or use the Delete R function as well.

I have talked to other M2C owners that have these and they have earlir built cars with no problems.

I've been trying to get AK to remote in on my laptop to fix this but the Virus has thrown everyone for a loop.

Here's one of my posts:

I like the Boost Gauge readout, Water, Oil, Intake and Exhaust Temp functions. Easy to read while driving at speed...

One of my favorite mods..

Yeah I like this more than the P3 gauge as it has more information and a better location in the car in my opinion. 2 hours of labor doesn't seem that bad, but doesn't seem like an easy DIY job from some videos that I've seen...

Plus the directions are only in German...
