    as far as i noe, Xli Gli have the same ECU, all u need is a meter with the Rpm, the wiring should already be present there.

    as the for the optiron meter, that im not sure if its a clip to clip fit. lets wait for some one who has actualy gone thru this kinda modification
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    RPM meter can work in any petrol fueled car, then input can be taken from ignition coil.

    just change the meter, u ll get ur rpm working without anyone wiring to go about
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    RPM meter is just a display or output...I am confused about from where this meter will get the information of revolutions...i mean there should be some sensor which calculate RPM?

    RPM can be sensed by the engine firing, one fire is considered as one pulse and the meter is calibrated accordingly to show the output

    You can easily get it done,its simply sort of plug n play.The cost will be 7~8k there's a guy in Satellite town from where you can buy this and he'll install it,he has got loads of JDM vehicle's stuff.
