    Blitz. Only in Japan right now. Can find them once in a while on ebay. Look like indiglo on a timex watch, but it is actually a black light around the bezel shining on the white face.

    Very cool. Very clear. Very expensive.

    stight, thanks! I'll keep an eye open for teh Blitz gauges. Although I'd be nice to have gauges that are US spec.

    I bought some gauges off ebay that are "reverse glow" gauges. They're pretty nice if you ask me.

    How was the install on those? Do they install cleanly or is any more modification of the stock unit needed? I'm just curious cause I want something like that so my gauges match.

    Install is very easy and clean. Its just an overlay. The PITA part is getting them on with out putting too much presure on the needles. And the other PITA is getting the stock gauges disconected from the harnesses. I goofed when installing mine thinking I had to take the stock plastic number sheet out, then I realized they were just meant to install over them. So now my speedometer sticks between 60-80. But this is what mine really look like at night. I didn't turn on the driving lights to illuminate the needles, but you get the idea.

    It might stick there because there is a buldge in the material. I had that happen in my Grand Am. I fixed it by making sure the overlay is flat and by lifting the needles off the gauge with a spoon very carefully.

    Does anyone know where the 04-05 gauges are avilable now? Like one of the forum members maybe?

    Thanks for the tip Jeremy...

    04CaliWRX.... I know they're for an 02-03 and the tac is in a different place. I was just merely showing you what they look like. Anyway, good luck finding them for an 04-05. They aren't on ebay, I doubt you'll find any anytime soon to fit your needs. But you can always change the color of the lights to make them blue or whatever color you want. Its just more of a PITA than to just use the over lays.

    sorry for the late reply. Indiglo is just a term for a "neon" glow look on the face of a watch. As I said, BLITZ Racing has guages that are quite simply the best in the business. Not sure where to find them. I saw them on a JDM car in Japan. The lighting is actually in the ring on the front of the guage. It shines down on the face and illuminates like no other. I will try to find a link.

    I found a preorder for some here http://www.speedhut.com/15orders_el_...mber=90&bhcp=1

    I had speedhut gauges in my Grand Am and I really liked them. I've already put in my pre order.
