Question Gauges in Radio slot

I just put a Sony CDX M800 into my '99 2.5 GT Avant. The old head unit was a double system the new one is not. I am thinking about filling in the dead space with some meters. I'm not sure which ones to get, the car has 102,000 miles so Oil Pressure will most likely be one. Anyone have recommendations for company and/or types of gauges to use? Any input will be appreciated.

285 is a wide tire!

I use oil temp instead of pressure, just preference I suppose. My car started running ~10 degrees F higher, and it was due to me being low ~1 quart.

There are DIN panels for three guages, either 45 mm or 52 mm. Omori is the only company I know of that makes the 45 mm guages. 52 mm can be had from many.

See:

These are turned toward the driver, for easier viewing:

The 02+ opening is not a full double DIN opening, it's a double ISO and the first link above for the 52mm gauges will not fit.

Example, any aftermarket radio cannot use the trim ring on the WRX because it's ISO. A DIN opening could use the trim ring around the radio.
