    Bit of a thread bump, but have you got a Drivers eye view of your boost guages? And were they easy to fit? Thanks

    Cheers, in my earlier post I meant to ask about the oil temp gauge as well, i.e. location and ease of fitting. Thanks.

    just a small update really.

    new location for the gauges (needs to be re-trimmed)
    [​IMG]

    standard alloys sprayed gloss black and new rubber
    [​IMG]

    i have also made a sub box to keep my boot space free, i know its not the biggest or best sub but i only wanted a bit extra then the standard one could provide.

    i've also used a high-to-low converter so i was able to keep the standard headunit

    will be getting coilovers next, so will upload more photos once its lowered
