    Before anyone says, I know I need a new pollen filter! The stealers were meant to have changed it on the last service in July, looks like it hasnr been changed for years! Shocking!

    It comes with a red and green cover to slide over the bulb, kinda like a mini-condom lol!
    I went for red obviously! Looks so good at night! Bit distarcting though, as you want to look at the boost building!
    Hell of a job to fit!

    Do they carry them as that's the mount I want for mine but can't find it anywhere. Not intrested in the guage as I have one already for the job. I'm getting fed up of looking at my guage in an old boost pipe wedged between the dash and the windscreen, looks a bit pikey.

    get the dremel out and make your own vent mount!. takes 5 minutes and if your careful looks pretty standard fit!

    I've just managed to get hold of an AWE gauge with a white needle and red digits to match the S4 dials. Hope to get it fitted before my visit to the RR this weekend.

    I like the vent cover, did Sarah get hold of that seperately from the gauge? I was just going to cut up one of the existing vents.

    It came like that, which wasa relief as I didnt fancy cutting the vents up.

    Looks mint at night, and seems to be peaking at 10psi, does that sound about right? Has a healthy (-) reading too!
