    The is a gauge you can get that is incorporated into the rev counter that looks really good but it is hard to do yourself and expensive to get done for you. It involves drilling holes in your rev counter and installing leds. If you run a search you may find the post about it.

    I think it is worth having... best thing to do wuld get a pillar pod mount then the cable/hose can he hidden easily, and is not in the way.

    Not sure of which one to get as there are so many available.

    ive got one, and i chose to mount it in a different place. Basically, i mounted it behind the gearstick in front of the ashtray, easily visible to driver and wires are hidden, plus it has 7 different colours so i can change as and when i like [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Didnt want to mount in a pillar pod and most people who have seen it say it looks good where it is [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    It does fit an S3, but i chose not to do it due to cost.

    you also loose the S3 logo on rev counter.
