    Also interested as my vent is being sent off this week too.

    Would ideally like it to match standard dash colours.

    Hey guys i brought a Raid boost guage for my s3, its new unused. But because I'm selling the s3 i dont need it anymore. This is what i got it for, and this is the model!! If you guys want it let me know for a similar price i paid! The reason i got this is its the same colours as the dash so should go nicely!! http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWN:IT&ih=018
    In total i paid £32.29

    Surely youd pay about 40 quid for the pillar mount and matching interior trim to cover it with though?

    What have you got then Dave??

    each to their own i suppose, but the way i look at it is, his work looks very good, and im guessing its gonna take at least 3 hours of his time which i would be charging over 60 in labour costs alone so aslong as its a good job im happy as it would take me even longer and i wouldnt do as good a job!

    I jhave a boost gauge on my vent which I did myself, but it annoys me as I dont really need it unless there is a problem so I'm going to be leaving the connectors in situ and removing the gauge, only putting it back when i need to troubleshoot.

    Might be interested in the vents. The Cupra forum link doesn't work for me.

    How easy is it to plumb it in from the air vent? Do they also need power? I have no idea how to get a line from the engine bay poking out an air vent!

    You will need a power, a ground, the boost pipe and posibly a permanent or ignition positive depending on what gauge.

    If you're in Surrey, it may be worth driving down to Hindhead to The Phirm. Tim there has fabricated my vent to fit my boost guage...
