hmmm, removing OBC/center vent/radio etc. or removing the a-pillar... i'd choose the latter (which I did combined with a dual cluster pod), although some find it "ugly" it does make the gauges that much more visible to the driver without having to remove your eyes from the road for as long. Plus the ease of installation never hurts.

boost
EGT
oil pressure
oil temp

i have two alternate spares that im not going to use (water temp and NB air/fuel)

im looking for an "afordable" WB Air/fuel gauge, but i have to be patient.

i want your UEGO.

lol

330ci05- well its pretty good to have if your car is boosted. but if your car is pretty much stock than it can still be useful. for those who track cars and arent boosted sometimes have gauges. you have to remember when you boost your car , your going well outside the intended limits of the cars components.
