I've never seen owt like that, from under my rock!

I've seen plenty of gauge on top of the dash and up the a-pillar.

Go for it, we will worship you ;)

Each to their own I guess, as I'd prefer to keep my vent :worms:

Looking at this one

What do you think as a match for the dash

That's a pretty good match, well done.

Not sure about the silver bezel tho.

See how it compares to the silver ring around the vent, it may get a quick spray job if it dosent look right.

Whereas mine is always open, I like the wind to blow freely... ;)
I just open the window if I want a bit of air, not one for air con unless its sweltering.

Looking to get this sorted myself before I get the old girl remapped, but still waiting on TDI yet for a fitment date for me new clutch.
Reckon I can have the job done on my own time for less than £60.

That's does look neat and tidy I really toyed with the idea or sticking mine there, but I actually use my vents so couldn't justify loosing one!

I always tried really hard to work next to it and install another gauge in the area, but couldn't make that work either.

Is the nice matching blue gauge a digital gauge or does it need a boost hose running to it? Looks a very nice match for the Type S blue

Yeh spoke to the company selling them today and it's just boost hose by the looks of it, gonna get one of those pipe T's you bought when you did yours and then it's just putting juice to it when the ignition is on which ain't gonna be to hard it's above the fuse board lol.




:dito: it does look tidy there but I need my ventilation more.
To me it's no loss as mine is always shut anyways

But now it won't be shut, and it won't ever be shut. The guy who had it done said that the air still comes out of it around the edges. Can't change direction of it, either. Just have to turn off the head-height vents and use foot vents or windscreen vents :/
