    This not only happened to one of my Autometer Carbon Fiber Series gauges. But 2 of them. I bought one and it was good for several months. Then on the way to work one morning, the dial just fell off into the gauge. So I bought another one from Summit racing. I sent the FIRST broken one back to Autometere to be replaced. They sent me a brand new on for free. I had the one from Summit racing in my car for less than 1 month and the SECOND autometer gauges dial fell off. So I put the replacement one Autometer sent me back into my car. I sent the SECOND broken Autometer gauge back to Summit racing and they gave me my money back. Either the same technician built both of the gauges I had bought or they came from the same lot #. I don't know. But I don't have good faith in Autometer gauges anymore. And do you blame me?

    I did watch the visuals, and I didn't see anything that said it would change colors if you were at your preset warning.

    The 3rd visual talks about the "full dial red alert warning" function. It IS there, you just have to pay attention.

    It is there. Watch carefully! They even show you the dial flashing red.

    So it is on the third visual entitled "expansion" right? If so, is it on the first, second, or third clip in that category.

    Dude, click on the "visuals" icon and then click the "next" button twice (the one near the bottom of the box). It will come to the one we're talking about. If you don't see it at that point, then just forget it.

    I don't know what I was smoking on when I first looked at the site, but I swear that next button wasn't down there originally. Oh well, saw it that time and feel like a fool. Looks cool, and when the "initialization" starts it sounds like a subie cranking up.

    I have a 2003 WRX.

    Planned Gauge updgrades soon:
    New gauge set: Boost, EGT, Oil Pressure, trying to decide on brand:
    Defi-Link Meter System ( http://www.defi-shop.com/product/bf/bf_top.html )
    vs New AutoMeter Nexus ( http://hp.autometer.com/products/nexus/index.html )

    It states that you can choose any color you want for your warning color, ie. if you have gauge color set on red, you can choose white for your warning color.

    It sure sounds like the build quality if far better then prior AutoMeter, I think they are stepping it up..... probably going to be very similar to the Defi-Link meter system in cost....
    I calculated my setup will cost about $1000 for Defi, and I expect about the same from the Nexus, they tell us it will be available in Jan 2006. I heard it made quite a splash at SEMA this year.

    $1000 is so expensive for gauges! Ah eventually I'll be able to get something nicer than sport comps since they are so great . I have a turboback exhaust and EBC already on my Christmas list for this year. Hopefully I'll get the Nexus setup for my B-day.

    Probably not going to be much cheaper(if any) cheaper than Defi. Nice looking gauges though. I like that they are going to be 52 instead of 60mm.
