erm...really dislike that..

I'd still like to have functional air vents and practicalities. What looks best is the Defi 3-pod setup above the clock. That is amazing.

The fact that you have to take your eyes off the road in order to look down makes that useless for any track use. Personally it's crap. The clock pod or A-piller would have been a better option.

creative yes, easy to read while driving, no. i could mount my gauges on the top of my roof to be creative, but they would be hard to see while driving.

is there a gauge that says whether the car is on or not?
is there a gauge that correlates ego size vs. # of gauges?
is there a gauge that tells you whether your other gauges are on?


if it was up to me i'd replace my entire car with gauges.. whats the point of driving when i can see that sweeeeeeeeeeet opening ceremony

Default guage setup

I've seen a single gauge replacing the left driver's side vent (round one next to the wheel). I measured it and it seems that it's about a 52mm vent. Anyone seen this done? It seems like a pretty clean look and i've never used the vent. Any thoughts on fitment and setup?

Doesn't that vent help keep your window from fogging up? Even if the heater/AC is off there is still air that comes from that vent.

the one is the driver side vent is pretty common i thought. you can still use the vent for air even if you do it right. (not the defrost vent, but the circle one) i can't see this vid at work, but if they are defi's, you don't need to stare at them. that's the beauty of peak recall and the record feature.

hm...kinda liking the HVAC in the middle. Gauges look decent...a little over the top but to each their own.

How did you get the left boost gauge vent setup? I've heard it's a pain to get access to. The fit looks perfect and so clean. How did you relocate the HVAC and get the nice fit next to the ebrake? Any chance for a DIY writeup?

completely useless gauge setup as mentioned before.... When I'm at the track, I don't have time to look down. I just run 3 defi's on the clock pod (boost, egt and oil pressure).
