[DML] Headlight switch update



Realizing that not everyone here reads the dmchelp.com forums, I wanted 
to re-post here the recent update on the headlight switch reproduction 
program.

------------

After reviewing samples from the supplier, and being unhappy with the 
switch and the design, we have pulled the project from the supplier and 
decided to modify the existing design to improve the functionality and 
performance of the switch. A minimal amount of current will run through 
the switch (enough to light the internal indicator bulb), and it will 
feature an "auto-off" upgrade, currently set for a 30-second delay after 
the ignition is turned off that it will shut off the headlights. It will 
still be a "plug and play" switch and be identical in appearance to the 
original. Retail price is still expected to be $50, and those who placed 
pre-orders will be the first to receive the switches, as outlined 
previously.

We've had the first "proof of concept" samples here in a company car for 
the last week or so and so far it's working great. We're moving towards 
getting this design finalized and into production.

I think everyone will be happy with this new development, and a much 
improved product. After the last experience with talking about dates, 
I'm hesitant to do so again. I would hope that within the next week or 
two, however, I will feel confident enough to set a date. It is entirely 
possible that the pre-orders will be filled prior to DCS.
