    The Osir vent mount kit comes with a shim to fit 52mm gauges instead of 60mm. Have a look on the TT shop website.

    Anybody recommend a reasonably priced smoked boost gauge with needle sweep on start up?

    I'd be after a gauge that's as close to the stock cluster as possible. I had a SW (I think) in my S3. It had a white back with black numbering then I added a red led so it matched the cluster.

    I have a pro gauge that illuminates and is in a pod to go with the 8P S3 vents..........I was so desperate to fit it but now I have zero time to do it and cannot be bothered to strip my car to do it also so its open to good offers.

    I was wanting to monitor boost levels between Stage 1 and Stage 2 maps just for a little experiment but as said before I have no time to fit it now.
