    Need bost gauge ideas!!

    Has anyone fitted a boost gauge to there facelift S3 ?? I'm after ideas, Don't particularly want one but if it helps me monitor boost pressure and check if i could be down on power I'm all for it, i want nice and discreet not in your face on the dash, i have thought of a digi one in the cup holder or i do vaguely remember seeing one on here which had little lights in the rev counter.

    Help will be appreciated on a good make gauge and pictures of other peoples gauges would be great!

    Plus has any one fitted in car boost controllers? are they any good? i like the idea of winding boost right down when plodding about...save in petrol and all that! payed 1.15.9 a liter on super unleaded to day....NOT Good

    I have just got mine back from The Phirm. They have fitted mine behind the vents on the driver's heater and taken off the tab to move the fins around. You barely notice it't there when the engine is off and it shines through the vents when it's on....looks spot on and exactly how I wanted it!

    I can't host them as my phone is not syn'd to my laptop and my camera is on the blink. If you text me on 07887 567 686 I'll send a phone picture if you can host it and put it up?

    Not really a fair idea of what it looks like actually as that was my phone with the flash on!

    It is far less obvious than that in daylight and the face is black so you can't see the dials.

    At night it lights up white and red but I will change the bulbs so they match the rest of the dash.

    Looks very subtle...
