Default 02/03 Stock looking gauges

I'm looking to get some new gauges (boost/EGT) and i want to retain the factory look as much as possible. Except for the Omori gauges, are there any others our there that look the same as the stock gauge cluster (yellow needle, green background)?

I believe VDO makes some cheap gauges that have a green background. Can't quite remember the needle color, it may be orange/red.

As taylor04 said, VDO makes gauges (e.g. their "vision" line) with green lighting. Unfortunately, the needles light up red.

If you want to go with green back lighting & yellow-lit needles, aside from Omori, you can get ISS Pro gauges, which has white lit needles, and color it translucent yellow using Krylon Stain Glass spray paint.

If you don't mind having needles that don't light up, then you can get pretty much any gauge with green back lighting, and spray paint the needles "solar yellow" or something similar:

^^^ What he said. I've got the Omori 02/03 look alike gauges and they match up pretty good. www.j-spectuning.com has them with package deals.

I have the Autometer Ultra-Lite CF series and it comes with a green and red bulb condom. It has yellow numbers and a silver needle, matches pretty well with my 03.

If I had the money I would of def went for the omori gauges because they match the interior perfectly. But like uncle ben said, the carbon fiber series match the interior nicely. I have three carbon fiber series gauges waiting to be installed. I bought all of them including the three gauge a-pillar pod in the classifides and spent about 100 dollars. I got lucky also. When the used boost gauge arrived at my house, the needle had fallen off. So after searching and seeing that most people send it to autometer, i shipped it to them. THREE days later they sent me a new gauge for FREE!! autometer has very good customer service.
