    Autometer Triple Gauge Pillar

    http://www.jscspeed.com/wrx/interior...iplepillar.htm

    Anyone use this gauge pillar in their car? It looks like a nice piece. My biggest beef with this style is having to hack up the stock pillar. I am a big fan of keeping the stock parts stock, should I decide to sell the car, and need to restore it to original condition.

    If anybody has this unit, could you please let me know if you had to do any drilling into stock parts, and also how the installation went as well as the finished appearance?

    Many Thanks,
    Tony

    Does the lotek replace the existing stock A-pillar? Do you have to drill any holes.

    www.gaugepods.com - for anyone else.

    Thanks!

    Thanks guys! Sure appreaciate some direction. The Lotek one is a bit cheaper, but I would have to bet that there is only one manufacturer - Lotek, and Autometer buys them from Lotek. I e-mailed Lotek and they were responsive, but not much help.

    DML - good point about stock pillars being cheap to replace. I guess I shouldn't be so anal, but it's the first new car I have ever owned!

    Anyone know of a good source for cheap Autometer gauges?

    The cheapest place I have found them was:

    I have just bought the autometer pillar pod. I should be installing it this weekend but it looks as if you need to drill two little holes...not that bad..Plus i plan on keeping my car anyway.
