    A pillar gauges are for ricers, I'd put one in one of your vents :)

    I don't think anyone sells them for the a3. I would buy a gauge and modify a air vent myself.

    yeah best thing to do is to buy a dremel and take it from there. If you mean the whole fitting process im not sure, ive not own an a3 so I would know how to take apart the dash or feed the wires etc, but I do know how to in an S4/RS4

    anywhere with the right drill bit :p

    look near the ecu in the engine bay, that should be a good start

    Try by the pollen filter box that comes in the car so should be able to take it thro there , thats where i intend to go through so no drilling of bulkhead wil be required
