Two of the biggest IMD uses for the company's films have been in heater controls (HVAC) and gear-shift ground consoles (PRNDL).
They include textures such as velvet and suede, as well as high- and low-gloss looks for applications such as PRNDL, HVAC bezels, and other parts of the instrument panel.
At present, current applications are limited to instrument cluster gauge backlighting, gear shift ("PRNDL
") illumination, window and lock control buttons in doors, and most recently, as "mood lighting" on the ultra-luxury Maybach 62 and 2003 Mercedes E-Class--semi-transparent roof EL liner membranes whose diffused light intensity can be controlled by rear seat passengers.
Interior enhancements include a revised instrument cluster with digital odometer, dual trip meter, and PRNDL
indicator on 4ECT models.

indicator and cause brief engagement of reverse.
Likewise, push the "D" button on the PRNDL
pad located next to the interface and you're ready roll.

' cable is likely to break at the attachment to the transmission control selector arm assembly mounted on the steering column.
