    should I buy the Performance Gauge Pack?

    I just bought a 2004 wrx wagon and pick it up the afternoon of 12/31. The dealer is going to let me have any options I want at dealer cost. Is the Perfomance Gauge Pack worth it?

    Thanks

    I went with this pack thinking that the oem stuff would be good. This is not the case for the gauge pack. The gauges are too small to look at while driving. Plus, it does does show the peak or playback, this can be very important. For the amount that I paid for mine from the dealer, I could have had an aftermarket one that
    1 - had many more functions
    2 - looked better (gauge pack illuminates white and is very ugly)

    I say no. The gauges that are useful to most people are boost, exhaust gas temperature, and either oil pressure or air/fuel ration. The performance gauge pack has boost, which can be read by anything from a simple turbo timer to a fancy gauge, plus two other useless gauges. Quite frankly, the clock itself is more useful on a stock WRX, and once you have the need for gauges, chances are that you won't choose a tiny voltage meter or something that reads water temperature.

    Hahaha, that is very true, I would rather have a clock than the stock gauges.

    NO. The gauges are too small to read. Get some aftermarket guages.
