    yea, i have 5 of those gauges (actually, the tinted series), and there pretty good. Sometimes there a bit dark during the day, but still easily readible. As for now, the only gauge thats actaully running is the boost gauge, which is pretty accurate to my accessport, but all of the other gauges are lit up. I like em, especially for the price!

    Did it actually come with all the mounting stuff and everything necessary to install?

    Yeah i have got of set of them. A boost gauge and oil pressure mounted on the steering colum. I have tested them with my accesport and they are pretty accurate.

    I have their boost gauge also and am very happy with it. Sometimes a little diificult to read during the day, but seems to be very accurate. If you are looking for the easiest install, I would not get the pillar mount and get the clock replacement pod instead.

    If these are the gauges Im thinking of I had their boost gauge and their water temp gauge and I didnt like em. I had the ones that were tinted so they looked black when the car was off. I had no problems reading them, but the boost gauge would leak under high boost (one of my personal pet peeves). Also, the water gauge didnt seem like it read accurately. I ended up switching over to some autometer gauges.

    Edit: I think I should clarify about the boost gauge. Most boost gauges use a thread tightening brass attachment for the hose. These gauges (The one I had anyway) use a long metal barb. I was replacing a boost gauge so I had already run the hose, and I was using a rigid poly irrigation tube from home depot instead of the soft tubing they give you with the gauge. Because the tubing didnt conform around the metal barb, the fit wasnt very tight and the gauge would leak. I tried clamping the hose but I could never find clamps small enough to reliably clamp down on the hose.

    i Just ordered a whole set of these, along with their A-pillar gauges pod, I'm sure the gauges will be fine. I hope the A-pillar pod fits though. BTW i got boost, oil pressure, and AFR. I know AFR is useless unless you get a wideband. but i had nothing else to put there.

    ok so i got the gauges in, as well as the pillar triple pod. they installed nicely, the pillar pod fits well. they look really awsome at night, but are alittle dim during the day, i might open one up and put a brighter LED in it.
