This is the ALL NEW GEN 2 LCD AuCar Climate Control for the 2008-2017 Maserati Granturismo, GranCabrio. NEW DESIGN! No canbus required which mean no recalibration when battery power is lost. Just got done testing it today and uploaded the demo video. I think the release date will be early December.

Definitely in for the Gen2...the no recalibration alone is worth the swap. (y)

Great - I had an email from them today saying it will be available in about a month.

They also suggested an android 11 head unit was planned, but at least 6 months away. I did ask if a software update would be available for the 2.1 unit but no response yet. I guess they probably have not started testing yet, but I would hope they would offer an OTA update for existing customers as that would show great customer care...

OK, so the Aucar website shows these are available now only in piano black. $899.99. I cant get an answer from their whatsapp or from Robin as to the availability of the matte black option. I am thinking of ordering the radio in matte black and the new version of the hvac panel in piano and maybe Robin knows if the face plate can be removed so i can send to to Dave to have the face re-finished to matte?

I have been told piano is ready to ship, but matte black will be at least another month.

I've gone with piano for the AC and head unit - hope i don't regret waiting...

Oh really? That would be ideal for me. I have no problem waiting. Did you message Aucar? The units look awesome but i only want to take apart dash once so i will wait.

you guys dont think the gloss black has too much glare? I have the half blue half brown interior. no gloss black trim or anything in my car so I was thinking matte black would be best idea for me.

That ACAR user finally posted a video of the new gran turismo digital dash also in the Granturismo facebook page and it looks insanely cool. I think having that digital dash, aucar and lcd controls basically bring our cars interiors back to 2022 spec more or less.

Not too much glare at all, I never even notice it. I love your idea of the matte with the blue/brown interior though. (y)
