Question Mima 2

Is there any news about the MIMA 2 ?
How will the system look like, how will it be connected to the car, how much will it cost?

Guess I'll go find the charger thread. Maybe I need one of those too. And I saw the drop down wheel last night. That looks interesting too. You guys have done so much I'm not sure where to start.

In europe, you may want to consider Peter Perkins version of MIMA, which is discussed on a thread in this forum. I did a quick look, but did not find it, but Peter can point you to it.
The final configuration cost and functionality of the new MIMA is to be determined once the design effort begins.

The drop down wheel was an interesting experiment, but it is not something I would sell.

As Mike states. If in Europe.

IMAC&C aka IMA Control & BCM Gauge Combo

You need to read the whole thread pretty much everything is covered.

So if I read correctly...

MIMA 1 No longer available
MIMA 2 Not yet available
Grid Charger No longer taking orders - You are finishing up existing orders
Drop down wheel - Never available
V-Boost booster battery and controller - I haven't found the status of that one yet

Did I miss any?

I would love to join your group of enthusiasts with my two 2000 Insights and my wife's 2003 Prius. I can make anything, but do not have the design or engineering background you have and hey, you've spent years doing it. And I also suffer from the same thing you do. Lackotime. There just isn't enough to do all the cool things we think of.

I can start reading years of posts, but ask for some guidance of where to start. Some are likely more pertinent than others.

Thanks,

Scott

Maybe it would be best to include your location in your profile.
Other INSIGHTERS may be close by that have the mods and that would benefit you for a visit.

A quick update:
The chargers are still available, I have 40 more units I can build and sell and there are no backorders, we usually ship in a day or two after the order is received.
MIMA2 is going to be available early summer if things fall into place.
