    Please tell me that they're now doing a RHD version. If not, do you really want that in the middle of your dash?!?

    im not sure how that would make a difference?

    It fits in front of the empty space on the rev counter, ok so I lose the S4 logo on there behind it, but gain the extra info

    Only photos I could find until mine is fitted, not an S4 but B8 chassis

    And from side ish view, shows where it clears the clocks

    needs a boost tap fitted inline on the S4/S5, they supply an AWE made part, I believe this facility exists on the A4/A5 cars, otherwise, appears to plug into the car, replaces the top cowling on the steering column, should be here in a few days, so maybe fitting this next week, I will try to do a helpful guide if I remember not to get carried away

    What do you actually gain from knowing this information then?

    on a tuned car, that it is making and or holding maximum boost levels, but even on a standard car this can be useful info.

    such as keeping the car off boost to reduce load, engine and inlet temps on a long drive or cool down after a spirited or track drive and conversely keep it on boost during track or press on driving

    I am tempted by the combined Oil pressure/boost gauge digital version they do, but I'd prefer if they could do it in a twin analogue dial version

    That its not over boosting and damaging the turbo.
