    Coming from a lot of JDM cars... it's normal to keep tabs on oil preasure, oil temp & boost ... this is something I am pretty used to and would like to have in my new S3...

    I am interested to see how you (if any) have installed aftermarket boost controllers / gauges in general.

    THe obvious location is the a pillar which I'm not too keen on - great location to see the gauges but I'm looking for some more stealth options (why I'm buying an S3 for the stealth Q car thang..)

    Cheers

    Also its nice to have gauges so you can monitor all the time rather than now and again with a laptop on the pasenger seat.

    Yep, my Defi's were pretty nice.. just curious to see where you lads have opted to stick em. No steering wheel style mounts avail for the A3? Some thing clean I guess

    You can mod a MK4 steering column pod to fit but it just gets in the way of the DIS. There was a guy on here who had a custom one set to the side which looked good.
