    52mm Gauges A-Pillar?

    Do any of you guys know if they make a Gauge Mount to fit 3 52mm gauges in the A-Pillar? I have an 05 Rex and don't really want to lose my clock, but I will if I have to. I like the larger 60mm gauges, but I realize that it seems you can't find an a-pillar mount to fit 3 of those. anyone know any?

    They're grey.. color matched to the interior. Bought from gaugepods.com (Lotek)... no pics but it's in MINT condition. Cheap at $35 shipped.

    just search for "WRX trippple gauge" on ebay and you'll find them.

    i think i'll be installing gauges at some point... and 52mm seems idea. 60 is too big.. how much do the 52mm gauges protrude from the A pillar with the dual pods?

    only the bezel sticks out beyond the pod.

    its hard to say because they're diagonal, and round, but as near as I can measure the farthest point sticks out about 2.5"-2.75".

    thats not so bad. I don't want huge gauges or a massive 3 gauge pod sitting on my dash.. i want the least obtrusive and smallest gauges. (i've seen the Defi and HKS DIN pods, with 3 46mm gauges.. but i'm limited to the gauges that come with the set.. or spend even MORE to get the ones i want.. i think a twin 52mm A-pillar pod setup is will work great..

    I'll post a picture of my 3-gauge if I can. I don't have it in my car yet so it might be another week. its really NOT very obtrusive. the Defi gauges are 60mm I think ...that would be a bit large. although for the center dash, I was thinking of getting 2 52mm gauges, and a 60mm in the middle...that would look kinda cool.

    I got VDO gauges. I live near the bigest VDO distributor in the country...they do custom work too...they look very OEM, and not too bright or distracting.

    the VDO EGT gauge is $102...it includes the gauge, sensor, wiring, and even the bung to weld to the pipe!...i've seen people spend like $350 on just the gauge!!!!

    VDO gauges are fluid-filled for REAL heavy duty race applications.

    I got 3 gauges from them with custom faces and lighting with senders for $140!

    I made the mistake of buying a black one (a-Pillar pod). If I had to do it again, I'd get a color matched one or paint it. I'll post pics tomorrow when the sun's out.
    Those fools, EVO vs. STi??? That's like comparing ....wait a minute...there's no comparison. The Suby's still working!!! The evo...well... I hope he got the extended warranty.
