    Well its been some time but i now have my S3 column twin gauge pod

    Just need to get it back and fit my electrical Stacks Boost and oil pressure gauges

    I went for the electrical Stacks boost gauge as it reads 35 psi and Oil pressure in Bar for easy reading

    I would like to thank Dave Platt aka Twins on some Ford Forums for his handy work

    Its the subframe bushes that are the weak point and will be better than the braces

    I'm making some solid subframe bushes

    I have done this a while ago and posted it on some thread. I used a Mk 4 golf pod and modded it a bit to fit the S3 column.








    Yours is a bit different shaped...it what BMW owners call a mickey mouse column pod. Im interrested seing how it will look once installed. Good Job!

    Sorry but not for me,
    It makes the cluster look very busy, I have a pillar pod and a vent pod but if i needed a third i would probably go for a twin pillar set up.
    Each to there own and it looks well made too

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    I only like the OEM look so it has to be hidden or subtle.

    Not the best pic but you get the idea

    I like it and just have to wire it all up, they don't block the view of the dials that much anyway

    Covers the time and the mileage but who looks at them all the time
