Default Need gauge set suggestions

I'm intrested in buying a oil pressure and engine temp gauge set that is placed in the molding between the drivers side window and windshield. I've seen them for Hondas and other foreign cars, but am unsure if anyone makes them for Legacys?
I prefer an eletronic oil pressure gauge rather than mech.
Has anyone found anything that looks fairly decent?

Thanx!

It isn't the gauges -- they are essentially universal -- it is the pillar gauge pod, i.e. someplace to mount them. I know you can buy pillar gauge pods for a WRX but I don't know if they exist for a Legacy.

I wouldn't be surprised if you are SOL.

Doing a little search on the web.....all I have found for the Legacy is the right side pillar gauge pod not the left.

Anybody have external engine temp or oil pressure gauges in their car/s? Looking for more ideas....

Default gauges

I've heard of people using the Honda CRX pod for the A-piller. The take a little shaping, but this is what I'm going to do. They have a 2 gauge piller pod. There are no full piler pod I am aware of that fit the Legacy.

Just get the autometer gauge pod for the GC8 Imprezas (98-01). They come in either single or dual pods and they fit PERFECTLY into the 97-99 legacies!! I had this setup in my 97GT.
