I am looking at installing these white face gauges, if anyone has any experience good or bad please post up, thanks!

The link is an ebay link, but they have an actual website, Whitegauges.net

My Contour SVT had the same sort of white faced gauges.
They look nice unless it is dusk or early morning. At dusk or early morning they are totally impossible to read.
With the lights on or off.
So if you love to drive with totally unreadable gauges 10% plus of the time, go ahead and get them.. And if you commute, your life will just be that much harder..
Just my 13 years of living with white gauges opinion..

I got an indiglo overlay when I first got my car. I couldn't afford to pick up an SVT assembly and the eBay overlay was hella cheap... I didn't notice driving being harder visibility-wise; but the converter for the unit crapped out after three years and now I drive at night with only the needles lit up... get two if you decide to do it (you may need the other one for it's parts!

I have had white gauges for the last 10 years of driving my commute of 60 miles, visibility was never a issue. I want to know if anyone has ever ordered these exact gauges and if they are worth the $24.

Also, these are not indiglo......

Just hope they arent flimsy and tear easy, otherwise the $24 price is attractive.
