I'm in the market for some gauges and was looking at different options and just wanted to check if anybody had any experience with these gauges before?

any info on things like accuracy and visibility would be great. just want to know if they worth buying basically.

I had a look into these gauges and they seem pretty decent. Features stepper motors so they are accurate in operation and are electronic. The sensors are generic so they do the job.

I guess they are much better than the cheaper auto gage ones that's for sure.

I'm not expecting them to be in bar with Defi gauges in terms of quality but they seem a good bang for buck.

apparently they come with all sensors needed and you don't need a control unit to use them either. i'll just have to shop around for the ultra-cheap prices :)

I have them installed in my car. I got the whole 5 for 470. Cheap as chips and fairly accurate.

Except the oil temp i have to have a hole drilled through the oil sump for that one.

My friend has defi intsalled in his evo and it looks good but l just cant see how u can justify the price for them, l think its better to spend the remianing amoung on parts that willl make a big difference to the car
