    BAR is more in keeping with an Audi tbh... mine is in BAR and did the same as Kev with the colour change... looks as OEM as it gets

    Gauge is a Stack one from Merlin Motorsports and the pod is a generic 52mm pillar pod from ebay that I modded to fit nice... write up is in my build thread (link in my sig) and how I made the background red is there too...

    Went with bar in the end as used to the liquid running bar any way

    Already painted the back but just having fun with the fiber glass at the mo, covered the the pillar with a reinforced plastic tape so will be able to remove it without it actually being fixed to the pillar
    Not sure if it will all go that smoothly but will wait and see will post pics when all complete 
