Any of u guys have Gauges in ur cars?
First of all I think that those look really cool in a car but I have one question is which ones need to be placed
I have the 1.8T.... any help would be apreciated
Thanks in advance
jon. is that the one that goes in place of the Headlight switch?? you are getting the E-code switch in the GB, right? just wondering. I really like the blue glow ones that djvibe posted. if I had any reason to put gauges in, I would def get those.. very nice..
that ones sweet jon! love it. i really like the one db posted too, never seen that one. i know HKS makes a sweet one that are the same colors as our gauges too. looks sweeet but if i got one, id probly get the autometer dave showed or the white face autometer.
Thanks guys this really gave me some ideas I was thinking of putting a boost gauge and some other guage I have no clue which other one would be important.
I was thinking of putting it by the door how do u call that by the windshield anyway u get the idea but we have an air bag right there would that be a problem? and how much do u guys think the instalation for that would be?
Thanks in advance
yo man, i say do boost, and air fuel, those are the 2 im doin when i get my s/c. boost ofcourse but the air fuel is just plain awesome. it like dances and shit while your drivin, and the chicks dig it haha
Silverstone, I think you are talking about pillar mounted guages. In the new GTI's the airbag is in the "A" pillar (the one beside the windshield). If you were to mount a guage there and then get in an accident, your guage would then become a 200+ MPH fastball aimed at someone inside your car. Mount your guages in the dash or ive also seen them mounted along the top of the windshield.
You are right and wrong fli. It depends on what gauge you get. If you get the $40 plastic one the it MAY fly off. There is also a more expensive gauge that replaces the whole piller with factory match carpet. I have also seen pictures of where the gauge (even the plastic one) would be and where the airbag is. The airbag will touch the gauge.
Hey Dubwink; I finally found out what I like about your car that's different! Thought it was the eyelids for a while, but it's not. What front spoiler do you have? w/ the foglight inside it? Looks awesome. I'd PM you but someone else might be interested in knowing...do you have any other pics?
