Default Bugeye clock gauge pod from RHD on LHD

So I've been looking around for a pod that can hold 3x52mm gauges.


I really like this one it's sleek, and it's there yet it's not in your face. It apparently only works on RHD, but I'm racking my brain to think what in the world could be different. I was trying to see if there is an actual angle on it, but it doesn't seem like it. I don't see how RHD could effect the dimensions. The clock piece if fully symmetrical on the American cars. So I don't see why it would only work on a RHD.

As well it's the same part number on both cars

This is a DIY link for RHD, but same concept will work though just not really sure if I'm ready to dig into that kind of work.

There is the stock WRX one, but it only fits 46mm I think, but it can be modified for 52mm

They as well make a stock look alike that is already pre fit for 52mm

I really like the first one, but I'm not sure if it would fit. Does anyone know from experience about the RHD clock fitting that could be different from the left?

I think it works only with RHD because the gauges are slightly inclined for the driver side. If you install it on a LHD car it will be out of the view range.

If you look closely the angle of the circles they turn into ovals. If you look at the other one it looks like their straight. I ended up just emailing the company to see if it is angled.
