How much time does it take for the clutch to engage and disengage? This could be used for DIY paddle shifter mechanism that I have been thinking of

Is it available in Kerala? The other 'Auto Clutch Systems' available in the market require the car to be taken to Bangalore for fitting as well as servicing.

The gear sticks of the ones I have seen over the internet have a button that needs to be pressed for changing gears. In this case, if the sensor really works (and if the system is reliable), it's convenient.

Yes it is available in Kerala now including the service.

The same company has also developed the paddle shifter, the auto pilot and the cruise control mechanisms.

From the pictures posted, it is not very clear whether we need to press a 'button on the gear lever' to change gears. Their website mentions that you need to press the button.

Could you please confirm?

Its the same product used by me for around 4 years before I removed it.

Reasons:

Very high failure rate
Lack of service
Lack of spare parts
Lack of knowledgable people to fix
Lack of support from Himanshu Chitnis - Importer based in Pune to close the issues (for product, spare parts etc)

More details on my thread at http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/access...ch-review.html
