    Is there any value in getting the SPT boost gauge vs an aftermarket? Been tossing around the idea of this.

    I've been considering adding one as well. As far as i know, the only benefit of using the spt over aftermarket is that it is plug and play rather than splicing power wires etc.

    The SPT is mechanical, correct? For the price of the SPT, you could get a top-of-the-line Defi gauge. I can't attest to the quality of the SPT one way or the other, but I seriously doubt it's better than Defi.

    I think the spt gauge is actually quite junky from all of the reviews I have read, but some people prefer it because it is oem.

    I like the SPT gauge vs the others for a couple reasons:

    It matches flawlessly without question to the interior lighting and style of the OEM gauges.
    It was installed for me at no charge from the dealership since I purchased from them.
    I prefer seeing a needle move over a digital gauge just to keep everything similar to the gauge cluster.

    If I do add a boost gauge, I will most likely go with the spt as well beacuse I would like to stay oem as much as possible.
    Did you order the gauge with car or afterwards? I have heard the if you buy it afterwards, the dealers charge an arm and a leg to install it (on top of the gauge price).

    I bought it with the car and added it to the financing. I didn't know at the time that they wouldn't install it for free had I purchased it from them afterwards.

    Yeah thats the logic I used when ordering it. I wouldn't even know that I paid for it basically lol. Same logic I used when I ordered the SPT exhaust. Which I am also very happy with, by the way.
