    What scale do you need?
    The Defi gauges are very nice. The face is blank until the gauge is turned on.
    I've got a pilar pod in mine. It doesn't look as bad as I thought it would.

    Here's a picture I found.

    A friend of mine has Defi gauges and I thought they looked good.
    Im not sure where is the best place to get them. I did a quick search and found this place:
    http://www.srbpower.com/defi/
    Click on Defi-Link Meter BF and Defi-Link Control Unit II
    They explain what the gauges do and what you need to use them.
    Im sure if you look yourself youll find some more suppliers.

    I used a Revotech single gauge pillar pod to trimmed to fit, to mount my boost gauge on the A-pillar.


    Sorry, but this the only image I could get at the moment, but Im sure others here must have something similar.

    Looks like 1.5 bar. Could that be right? Not au fait with boost pressures on cars...

    Ah yes. It's just off peak boost. 1.4 bar I think.

    How is it going jnoshad? I'm still saving for my Defi gauges.

    It will be easy to add more gauges too. They just daisy chain together IIRC.
    Has anyone here got a gauge mounted in the side air vent? I've seen a couple of Golf IVs with this.

    I got it from Demon Tweeks [spit] before I had enough of them.
    IIRC it was ~15. I got the leather grain effect pillar mount.
    It requires a little trimming to fit the A-pillar trim, and takes a 52mm gauge, although it can be modified to take a 60mm gauge.

    It looks like I spelt the name wrong in my earlier post, it should be Revotec.
    Here's a link.

    I didn't really want a pillar mount, but I wanted a boost guage. The one that comes as part of the Apexi AVC-R is pretty cool.

    Errr... No.
    10 years ago they would bend over backwards to help, and were very reliable.
    Now I think they're only really interested in selling stick on parts for the likes of Saxos.

    I didn't either really, but I couldn't stand not having a boost gauge, so needed a quick fix.
    Personally I don't like digital boost gauges. I much prefer to be able to glance at a needle.
