    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.

    IS it not listed on the site?
    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.

    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.
