Default podi - 2008-2013 WRX & STI gauge project

We have been approached by Subaru owners in the past to make a solution for their rides and was waiting to see if there was a demand.

This is the project discussion thread: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2513664

Please give it a read as it should answer most questions you may be thinking.

This presale is to provide a discount to customers that want to help expedite the product development cycle for the new Subaru gauge we are developing for the 2008-2013 WRX & STI

When you place an order you accept and understand that no gauges will be shipped at this time as the gauges are still in the development stage.

Right now all gauges are being sold for a flat rate of $109.00 per gauge.

When the gauge backlight colormatch is found (Milestone #1) all presale pricing will increase to:
$119.00 (1 gauge), $228.00 (2 gauges), $337.00 (3 gauges), $446.00 (4 gauges).

When the gauges reach the manufacturing stage (Milestone #2) all presale pricing will increase to:
$129.00 (1 gauge), $248.00 (2 gauges), $367.00 (3 gauges), $486.00 (4 gauges).

When the gauges have completed manufacturing the presale will be ended and your order will be processed when the gauges arrive.

If you would like to place an order, the presale purchase page is here: http://www.podi.ca/SubaruPresale.aspx

If someone places a presale order and later on decides they want a refund, just let me know and it will be done. I am not holding anyones money ransom.

Please feel free to ask questions in this or the project thread.

A bit confused. The title and pre-sale states it will be for years 2006-2013, but the link posted states it's for 2008+. Just wanted to make sure since the backlights ad needles are different green vs. red between the years.

The project thread was started by a member and he created that title.

I will admit that I am a Subaru n00b and the 2006-2013 year range is what was provided to me as the 'correct' date range for the orange/red backlit cluster with white needles.

If this information is incorrect please let me know and I will update my information.

I have a 2007 WRX, the cluster is green with an orange needle.

I believe the 08+ would be correct with the orange/red cluster. I also believe only the STi's from earlier years have the orange/red backlit cluster.

Pretty sure this would be the same for 02-07 WRX years: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...89&postcount=7

05' STi for reference: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2309691

So, if you guys came up with the green backlit cluster you would cover more years as well

I'd like to help by posting a few pieces of information that were already asked/covered to hopefully reduce the repeats.

1) Can I pay with paypal?

No, there were issues with them in the past, credit cards only.

2) Do I get a discount for multiple gauges?

The multiple gauge discount is factored into the presale. You're basically getting $30 off per gauge for your support of this project in the early stages. ($109 per gauge instead of Podi's regular $139 price)

3) Are there any extra fees?

Yes. You still pay for tax and shipping just like any other product.

4) Why is there a foreign transaction fee?

This is decided by the card-issuing bank, NOT Podi. Most banks don't charge the fee, but Podi is an "international" company because they're based out of Vancouver, BC.

5) Why does shipping cost more for Canadians if they're based in Canada?

Podi is based in Vancouver, but they ship their products from Washington state. This is because the majority of their orders are from US customers so it makes more sense shipping wise.

6) What is the timeframe for product release?

There isn't one. Podi is very particular about their products, and only releases something when they're 100% happy with it. This means that they will research/develop until the product is absolutely complete, which could take weeks or months. Of course they will move as quickly as possible, and our contributions here help speed up production.

7) When is the last day to preorder at a discount?

This has been covered multiple times in multiple threads. But in case you are having a hard time understanding, here it is. There is no set "end date". The discounted pricing will continue until Podi is able to find a color match for the backlight LED. At which point they will raise the price by $10. Then once they reach the first manufacturing stages they will raise the price another $10. Then once the gauges are finished, the presale will be over, and prices return to the normal $139 price.

8) What size are the gauges?

52mm. They will fit in any standard 52mm gauge pods. Most people choose the SMY pod due to the OEM look/feel.

9) What about EGT or other colors/years?

Podi has stated that they will look into producing other gauge types (including EGT) if there is enough demand. They have also hinted at the possibility of developing for earlier years (with green gauges) if the demand is high enough. The higher demand there is for this initial Subaru run, the better chances of Podi creating other products for us down the line.



I am not affiliated with Podi in any way. I just want to help other people looking to purchase. I'm excited to get my two gauges ASAP.

Podi, please correct me if anything is wrong.

Thanks for the information and I will update my posts.

I will see how this first Subaru gauge project goes and if there is a demand making matching green gauges is a possibility.

Your gauges are for 2008+ only. These are the red gauges with white needles. MY2007 and below have different gauge colors and fonts.

Cheaply priced high quality road proven gauges. You can't go wrong w/ Podi. He's been awesome getting involved in the Subaru community. And, it's a Canadian company, you can't go wrong!

I'll be jumping in x4 (x5 if EGT were available *hint*hint* :P) as soon as I'm back in Canada mid-November.

royalnewjersey, you should add that people should mention if they're interested in the EGT gauge as it may be an option in the future if interest is there. Props for the summary, very nice.

I own podia right now and I've had them for about a year now and they're still spot on. I love these gauges and can't wait for the factory matching ones. Big shout out to Winston

They are taking pre-orders while the gauge is being developed, and the pricing will be moved up when the correct led is found.
