    I have one installed from the factory, I think it is currently the only one that matches the factory gauges. BUT there is a thread around here about a high quality gauge being made to match the factory look. I don't think they have been released yet though. Hopefully someone else subscribed to the thread and can give you a link (because I can't find it right now)

    While the STP gauge looks nice, it isn't the most accurate or best quality gauge. There are much better ones out there. I will probably upgrade to a new one when the matching ones are released. I wish I could remember the thread it was in.

    EDIT: I found the thread, it's over on NASIOC. But here is a link directly to the website: Factory Match Gauges

    Defi is probably the best way to go. There are other quality gauges out there too.

    I'd stay away from the SPT gauge that Subaru offers. I've heard/seen plenty of stories where it fails.

    Heard plenty of mixed reviews on the SPT. I have no experience with it though so I couldn't give you my own conclusion.

    Maddad gauges have a good reputation and are a perfect cluster match, including startup sweep. They are a lower price point than Defi, as well.
