Me. Although, not column mounted....

The Omoris are actually 45mm. Different to the stock size. I bought the Omori DIN panel too, and I'm well pleased with the results. They match the OEM gauges very well.

I got mine through the Malaysian dealer. $200 cheaper. The service was excellent.

Yes, the one pictured is from Omori, part number P-107. It's designed for their line of 45mm gauges though. Can't remember the individual price, but you can check it out here.

Fitment was reasonable. By that I mean that the opening was just a tad small in the OEM hood. I got around this by turning the brackets around on the DIN panel. Hard to explain really unless you've seen the components you get with the DIN panel.

Scoob-

Did you get the mechanical or electrical boost gauges? What are the pros and cons of each anyway? Did they come with decent instructions?

I got mechanical boost. There are instructions, but not specific to our car. It was easy to install. There's lots of good info on this board for install. Just search gauge AND install and you should turn up the threads I found to be most useful.

There's a connector behind the radio that you can connect into to get dimming illumination. In one of the threads, there's another link for the factory boost gauge installation.

As far as electronic or mechanical, there is a different opinion from whoever you ask. Ultimately, I don't think the differences are worth forking out all that extra cash for on the electronic. Obviously, the EGT and Temp gauges are all electronic, and the price shows it. All in all, I'm quite pleased with the overall set up. Anybody who gets in the car comments on how nice they look. I think they're tons better than the OEM gauges!

Hope this was of help.

Scoob.

Thanks, Scoob.

I like the fact the Omori gauges match the dash gauges and the boost gauge is in psi and not bar.
