(can't get picture off flash site)
around $300+ taking a poll :) reply with quote of which one you like
if you're only using 1 gauge then get the one that only houses 1 gauge?
a 2 gauge pod with only 1 gauge will look retard.

Pillar Pods make the most sense for a daily driver because you are driving it all the time so you need/want those gauges where you can see them out of your peripheral constantly.

Steering column is 2nd most useful because at least when you are looking at the other gauges you can see the new gauges you've added. the only down side is they block the lower portion of other vital gauges so you're sort of shooting yourself in the foot.

Center mounted pods look cool but are least functional unless you specifically think to look over at them, which means looking away from the road which makes them basically pointless for a DD.

they'd be great for a racecar to have less vital gauges like temps/pressures etc. but they dont function great for a DD.


as a reference I've had all 3 styles so this is speaking from experience.

I personally love my 2 gauge column pod. the VW gauge lay out is in a way that the center pod is only blocking the tach beyond the redline which i don't need to see anyway and the like 0-15mph on the speedo which again for most driving you don't need to see anyway

First half of my day when pretty quick. Then I put the exhaust in my car and had lunch.. and now it's probably going to drag on out...

Also Auto-Zone failed and didn't have exhaust wrap.. Probably going to try out the Mazza place that I use to buy amsoil in a pinch (cuz i forget I need to do it so I don't have time to ask Kevin to order me some). They seem to have a lot of 'good' stuff most other autoparts places don't have.


Also this is awesome
