    I have noticed on some cars the boost pressure indicator is calibrated in bars and it goes up to 1.4 bars. then in other pics some people's boost gauge just has boost with no calibrations. I swore I have seen 1.2 bars on some cars. Is this the difference between the hot weather climate cars i.e. less boost. Can you guys tell me what your boost pressure gauge is calibrated?

    The photos I have seen of AUS spec MY14 cars and German spec MY15 cars have no calibration.

    My AUS spec MY15 is still on a ship :)

    My thoughts exactly!
    Pointless having a boost gauge if it doesn't tell you what its boosting to!

    I don't really care what the boost is in figures, I don't really care there is a boost gauge at all. It's a gimmick that came free with the car.

    And knowing your boost pressure is 1.2 or 1.4 isn't gimmicky? Talking about it over dinner with the family must be a treat.

    A proper boost gauge is something I'd look into fitting Tbh, even if your not running increased boost it's always nice to know your boosting right where you should be.
    Even if your boosting 0.1bar less than you should be it's power loss and an issue. At least you can tell instantly before it gets too bad.

    Don't Apr make something to attach a proper boost gauge to the 1.8tfsi and 2.0tfsi engines?

    No calibration on mine (May 2014), it is a waste of space anyway and I would much rather have the coolant temp ... hmm wonder if there is a way of activating that function??
