Default RPM Meter for WagonR Lxi

I bought Wagon R Lxi which lacks RPM meter. Can I fit the console of Vxi version to the Lxi?

Hi Ravi,

Yes you can but would not recommend it as it would involve a lot of parts, wiring harnesses etc to be changed proving to be a very costly affair. Cheapest and most practical solution would be to fit an after market tachometer.

Mmm.. Viper and rishibravo@ thank you so much for the reply. Would go for aftermarket tachometer.

One more question:
Is it advisable to put aftermarket tachomter? I am really missing tachometer in my WagonR

Ahh.. Thank you so much. It cleared my doubts. How much does this setup would cost me? and any specific brands that I can look for?

This kind of a tacho would cost you around 2500 to 3000 for a 3 and 1/2 inch tacho and around 5000 for a 5 inch one. Plus around 500 bucks installation. Brands like Auto Gauge, Autometer etc are easily available in the market.

Thanks

Does anyone know how does this aftermarket techometer work?

I believe we can discussion this question in this thread itself as I'm thiking creating a separate thread would be an overkill.

I too would like to know if a warranty will be void on installing an after-market tacho.

And also whether is it is possible to fit this on a Swift LDI diesel. I believe the Swift has a Distributor Less Ignition, which requires some adapter for fixing a tacho.

Any idea where I can buy and get this installed in Bangalore?
