I have dinan sport not bm3, but either way I think those factory output gauges are kind of a gimmick (cool, but gimmicky). not sure how much they actually read hp and tq,instead I think they simply use throttle position to give you a fixed# just to look cool. not sure though, I could be wrong.

No, I'm pretty sure you're right. I think they're fixed values. Just pull up the gauges on BM3 and look at your boost.

or go p3 gauges if you want a good sport display. I guess your method works too, and is definitely much cheaper

Yeah, it all depends. P3 gauges may be cheaper technically. In order to "remove" the laptop from the car, you have to buy their $300 module. You could use your phone or buy a cheap $70 tablet and mount that. That's what my buddy has done and I'm doing.

Yes... I'm not a fan of this method as it's a grab for extra change in their pocket. This process, while it's nice that it's wireless, can be done via a OBDII to USB-C connector. MHD uses this to allow for people to display gauges, but BM3 doesn't offer that...
