Default Sti boost, etg gauge suggestions

Ok it's never as simple as it should be. I'm looking for two gauges (boost, egt) to match the factory sti lighting. I bought the Autometer bezel which uses 52mm gauges. I love the Defi link Bf's since they match so well but of course they are only available in 60mm.

These are what I see as my options. Feel free to mention other known solutions.

Options:
1) Dremel out the Autometer bezel pod to fit the larger Defi Bf amber 60mm gauges. Anybody done this? How are the gauges actually attached?

2) Get the Defi link 52mm gauges and switch the color to amber. Anyone done this? Simple as a bulb condom change?

3) Get the Defi d gauge series. Not as good a match but still pretty good.

4) Some other amber option but don't care for the Autometer Nexus and the Omori look a little cheap.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Well you've IDed your options: Autometer Nexus, Omori, or Defi D. If digital works for you you can pick up Nordskog gauges through Summit Racing.

the D-gauges aren't bad. They are all electical except boost. They match more the Z style lighting, more of an AMBER then red. I have the boost, quality is much better then my previous autometer... I like it.
