    You bought a $20k+ car. Please, don't cheap out on gauges. If you can't spend the dough, wait. Buy a reliable, well known brand or you will forever wonder how much you can actually trust your gauges.

    Sorry don't know much about those specific gauges but I gotta say I bought the cheapest gauges I could find for my old corolla and they ended up being great. I guess its all a risk, I agree though on a car this expensive don't go cheap.

    any guage that comes with a color selection button scares me hehe

    get some nice reliable gauges, no sense in spending any money on gauges if they dont register right. Buy a 20 dollar gauge and it shows you running 35psi at idle heheh

    Get something proven to be reliable. There are defiinetly things between those and defi. If your more into function than bling look at autometer or VDO. I've had VDO for 20K they did not cost me a fortune, they work great and match my dash pretty well. what more could you ask for?

    best bang for your buck?

    they're 260 a piece

    Thats more than i'd ever want to spend on some freakin' gauges.

    but i'm not one to talk i guess... i spent 900 on a set of headlights.

    I would say VDO is the best bang for the buck.

    I got a set of used omori's for 350.

    I love my omori's EGT gauge and plan to pick up a matching boost gauge. They are a near perfect match for your stock WRX gauges.

    The only thing I would pay extra for in a boost of EGT gauge in a peak hold. That would be useful.
