    As per title, will a 60mm gauge fit into the centre vents or will it look stupidly big? Any pics?

    I reckon it will fit I've got a 52mm in mine and it looks fairly big

    It'll look 8mm bigger than Bradderz'.Loads of room in a vent to fit a 60mm gauge.

    This is what i fitted on my S4, think it's 52mm though. Although, can't 100% remember.

    personally think it looks daft.
    it should be sunk in more, 60 mm will be a stretch if that is 52mm

    never really understood why people have boost gauges all over the dash. how often do you look at them and what for?
    its only useful if there is a problem

    I had a look at mine and it looks as if there is around 6-8mm either side of the gauge to play with so I'd say it would be possible but will be a tight fit !!

    Thanks for the replies. Ive bought it now so if looks too big for the vent, ill have to look into other options. Its handy to know what you are boosting at especially when you are at a high state of tune
