Default Installing a Tach for Cheap...

I need a Tach for my Wagon. I don't have one

What brand should I get? I don't need something honking huge or glows neon colours in the dark. Just something that blends in, functions well, and can be put in cheaply.

Thanks in advance!

I would recommend autometer. You can go to their website to get info on styles and sizes or you can go to mopac to check out their selection.

Easy to install too. Tap 12v wire, RPM signal, ground. and your done.

How does this one look? I checked out autometer, and they are just too much green...

Sorry...

Green like "Bling Bling" "$$$"... Yup...

I didn't know autometers would be around $200 or more...

Any other alternatives?
