they seem cool on computer but they seem to fake, like they seem computer generated when installed too, (i saw a pic of them installed)

just a word of warning... the cheap paper guages tend to curl up once they've been installed because of the heat of the cluster bulbs... I spend the extra money and bought proper metal dials. Tell us how they hold up with time.

Unlike the E36 ones, the E30 gauges dont need to be tranparent, simce the light shines on them and not behing them!

Even the paper guages can stend up to time! It depends on how they are done. I had mine for about 3 years now with no problems! I'm not sure how Sebastian makes them but I guess Mat can let us know how they work out!

If they are half decent, we might pull off a group buy!

They definately aren't for me. I find they have too many colors on them, and i hate the ///M symbols also. I bought a set of white gauges and i never installed them. I guess i like the more "simple/stock" gauge look.
Post some pics after you install them, and be CAREFUL that you don't break your needles when removing/re-installing them.*th-up*

this kinda has somethign to do with this....but kinda not..heh

I don't like the red lights inside so can I just change the bulbs to bulbs that are like blue or something??

that'll work rite? sorry if this is a stupid question.

its not the ligths that are red. its the plastic glass the bulbs are behind. so if you change the bulbs, the colour will change, but not to blue, but to redish sumtin or other

I'll make you the same kit for only $5. and free shipping. it doesn't cost that much because I just print and sent it to you. I have all the dials saved on my computer and i even have better gauges then that.
