Just an FYI...you can purchase a silver ring for this gauge from ECS tuning...

Quick thought I just had I could always purchase the offset mount and gauge and if I get tired of it or don't like the look can just purchase the vent pod then right? Same 52mm gauge and everything if I'm not mistaken

I don't think it is difficult at all, here is the DIY for my gauge, if you decide on a gauge that goes on the left vent it should be similar: http://www.conceptsinmotion.net/diy/MK6DIY.pdf

That DIY looks very intimidating. Maybe I'll just pay to have it installed, haha. Thanks for the link though.

CIM is really nice, had it on my GTI. but if you need the best access to the AC (if in really hot climates or you are "big boned" like me) , I'd go AWE in the left vent or the worst visual choice (and what I have now), the steering column one.

is it 52mm? where did you get the pic from? if the pod is 52mm, any size 52mm gauge should be just fined.

Dude, wait for a bit for us to post...believe it or not we have lives.


Podi gauge is more shallow than the newsouth one.

And it's an electrical gauge....not as accurate.

I've been super pleased with my newsouth one.

Mechanical and simple.

Here's a link I found for install. It's for the vent mount, but the column mount is the same except for running the tubes/wires on the column. There was another good write-up of that I found somewhere else, but committed it to memory.

Hoping to tackle the install tomorrow, but it's going to be chilly!

I didn't mean like post pics now as in stop what your doing lol sorry but thank you for the input that's what my buddy has just a matter of picking the column or vent... Does the new south column go over the oem? Cause podi replaces the oem supposedly

Goes over the OEM...I dont see a point to replacing the OEM steering column panel though. Just one more thing to be laying around the garage.
