Good spot to mount guages

I have a 2010 and I'm wanting to add a afr guage. Do they make pillar mounts for these cars? I havent seen any. Or have any of you seen clever mounting spots? I'd like to see some ideas so I can figure the best spot to mount mine when I get it.

I was thinking of sticking an oil pressure gauge by the aux input jack.

When I install an iPad as my headunit, I was planning on using the HUD pod to put an AFR or wideband output.

ive got one of those universal dual pods on the a pillar for my afr and boost gauge. it fits pretty decent but theres a few spaces and doesnt sit as flush as i would would like without some modification. you can find it and similar ones on glowshifts website. Ill put a pic up as well so you can see what it looks like

I just installed a couple gauges in my 2009 2 weeks or so ago and I used a 1st gen auto meter dual pod, it's not perfect but it is from a focus, so a few bolts and it should be pretty good.

i think this has been brought up before and there aren't any specific pods for these cars. can get a universal pillar mount like the one above and mold it in for a flush look.

also do you have sync in your car? if not then you could custom mount something in the panel above the glove box. there's an open spot behind the left side of it as long as you don't have sync; otherwise that's where the sync module is.

Ill probably get one of those pillar pods and make it work. I can shape it I think. I thought about the dash where the sync would go as my car doesnt have it but to me, to have my guage in front of the passenger just wouldnt make much sence ergonomically.
