A short HD video showing an opening and closing ceremony, as well as daytime and nighttime modes of Prosport Premium 60mm Gauges mounted in a 05 WRX Wagon.
For now they are temporarily installed on top of the clock until I get a pod. One caveat of having them this way is that the daisy chain power cables are exposed in the back and they shake just a bit when going over bumps.

Video description and short list of pros and cons:
Gauges are set up in such way that they change from white to amber when lights are turned on.
From left: boost, oil pressure, exhaust gas temperature.
- easy installation
- quite precise if installed correctly, especially the boost gauge
- low price
- catchy opening/closing ceremony
- audible warning can be turned off
- easy and cleaver way to daisy chain the gauges for power
- more then enough cable provided for most applications
- peak warning sound
- peak recall
- hoods and front buttons rattle
- audible warning way too loud at idle
- needle hard to see in daylight
- can be bit noisy in a quiet car, especially the EGT gauge makes a lot of ticking noise making minuscule needle corrections the whole time
- weak and awkward stands (pod may be a better option)
- hard to plug in cable connectors in the back (I had to break off the safety clips to make them go in all the way)
Overall, they are a good bang for the buck. There are other more expensive gauges if things like hardly audible motor ticking, and random button rattle make
a big difference but in my opinion if the installation is performed carefully with attention to all details such as tight and short connections between the
boost pressure sender and the T-connector, then they can very well serve their purpose on par with more expensive equipment without breaking the wallet.
