I am an engineer, but I certainly never worked for Fiat/Chrysler.

What an awesome product! I know I'd be interested. I get tired of hitting that stupid ESS button on every engine start.

I made tremendous progress today modifying the WK2 product to work on the KL. Hopefully I will clinch it with one more session, then followed by testing with a few Beta testers before it goes on sale.

@IRSmart has been VERY generous with his time and the use of his car.
I can offer my 2016 for a Beta test.

If you wanted to test on an export model I would be happy to throw my hat in the ring too. (Australian version)

Thank you! I will be contacting you and at least one of the 2015 and 2016 volunteers as soon as the prototypes are ready.
