Recently I have been looking what gauges i can get. I famcy a boost obviously and maybe an oil pressure one.

I like the look of the NewSouth one;



As they look very much like standard, especialy when lit. " of those gauges would look sweet.....however,

Ive recently learned that NewSouth dont do oil pressure gauges! so i will have to look else where

Does any other company make gauges that look this OEM?? i.e. standard colour blue/red when lit.

What gauges do people on here have?? pics would be nice [H]

cheers

John, Having seen your guages, I'd say they are quite nice as they are. Can't you change the illumination on them ?

If you want VDO's though, Awesome do them as do Big Boys, I got mine however from...

www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk

They are based at Castle Coombe, right beside the track so to speak.

Also....

I've got a non vision VDO oil temp and oil press just sitting in a filing cabinet in the garage...

That looks wicked, i didnt think that pod would be that good off ebay, look like im gonna have to get me one of them! Is it textured plastic or covered?

The gauges look cool too, i see what you mean about them being white at night, thing is, if you get some blue leds will you be able to see them during the day?

Thanks, i couldnt belive how good it was, it is textured plastic but suites the dash nicley, i think you would still be able to see them during the day just trying to work out how to dismantel them i dont want to brake them you see.

This is where I got my digital guage from www.spa-uk.co.uk

I think this is the guage that the Focus RS guys use and one of the ford tuners managed to get them to make a special version that matched the blue guages in the RS. Perhaps if there was enough demand they could be persuaded to make one that matches the VW dash?
