Default Boost gauge help

Quickly! I need a boost gauge that's no more than $150 reliable and works well!!!

I bought a prosport premium but it's way too damn bright!! It's hurts my eyes at night when I'm driving.

What's the best boost gauge for $150 or under, and not too bright like thee prosport?

Go to walmart and buy some window tint in the auto section. Cut a section and tint the gauge.

I totally hated mine when I first got it for the same reason (bought the car with one installed). Super...annoying. I got used to it, but it took over a year to warm up to it.

I agree with Brother, on the cheap tint can be your friend. It's certainly worth a try for a quick check. Personally I haven't researched brands relative to brightness, so I have no worthwhile information for you. However, I'd start researching brands and see if users/reviews hint towards specific products that are dimmer or can be dimmed well for night use. Some also can be run with different colors. Mine has white, green, blue, and red, maybe a yellow too but I don't recall. If available, you can opt for colors that are less bright. For example red is a good night color. Blue is also dark but can be somewhat annoying as a light color.

Wire it to the dimming switch and you don't have a problem. And buying a new gauge because of brightness is a bad reason.

I can dim my spt. However the needle rattles slightly on really rough roads which is kind of annoying.
