    its the only thing i can find that keeps it neat, i dont want those ones that sit on the stearing colum etc with the wires hanging out the back.

    On the door pillar year but having it in the fron where the air vent is makes it easier to wire in i think.

    I have the complete APR kit not never out of the box. I bought it for my S4 I'm in two minds on whether to fit it into my RS. I'm thinking of fitting one in the cup holder especially if it has a memory or alarm function.

    I'd sell the complete kit only.

    Yes it is identical to that. I think it looks good and is even better looking in the flesh. It is a solid mounting pod and quality looking gauge.

    Basically what I paid for it. I think it was 120. It could even have been more?

    It took Jim a very long time to get this for me for some strange reason and APR wanted $50 to ship if I went to them direct!! Although I'm sure I could have sorted something else. It was there standard option on thier website.

    Im guessing that i will need to give them a ring..
    Do they have to come with the boost guage as i need just second mouning for a temp sensor.

    Re: Boost Guages

    APR's pod sticks out a bit whereas AWE makes a center vent pod that is less obtrusive.

    AWE

    A-pillar pods are common, too. BUT... if you have an A-pillar airbag, forget about it - very dangerous! If the airbag deploys, the guage becomes a cannon ball directed right at your head!

    Sometimes they are on ebay.

    I think there's a guy named Overspun who sells something like the APR unit (gauge not included), too. He made the piece himself and sells it on ebay, too. I think the piece is really inexpensive, too.
