My Ride: work in progress
I saw the coolest gauge on an STi. He was driving besides me at night and it had blue indigol and a blinking led that jumped around. It was probably a turbro gauge but it was cool. The gauge was mounted on the pillar with other gauge. That probably didn't help you much though

blinking light that jumped around? are you sure it was boost? the air/fuel guages are the only ones i've seen that have a blinking led jumping around...i could be wrong of course

I have looked at VDO and decided to go with Greddy for two reasons: build quality and metric system (personal preference).

I think investing in a good gauge that cost a little more will be better in the long run. Gauges must be accurate and sensitive to minor changes.

Actually you're right. That is a AFR gauge.
