Question Alternative to Berg Werks FGS module?

Now that Berg Werks has closed it's doors and web site, is there another company out there that makes a first-gear-start module that would be compatible for the 560SL series? By the time I read about it and became interested, they closed up shop. Any feedback appreciated.

I checked out the link. Where the heck is the place located and how much does it cost? Not listed anywhere on the site. They claim it only works on a V8 engine. But the way it interfaces with the vehicle has nothing to do with the engine. I think something is being lost in the translation here. It looks interesting, but I'd want better info before I sent off any $.

Thumbs up thanks for the links

I knew that someone had to have a viable product out there. I came here because I was just too lazy to do my own internet searching!!

Thanks very much for the links.
