I have the old old OLD version of ProSport gauges:

Never ONCE had a single problem with them. The sending unit was a slight pain in the *** for oil pressure because of the physical size, but I got that sorted out. All three of those gauges were like 140$ total.

These ******* pieces of **** on the other hand.....

I've had 4 of these junk *** autometer gauges, which cost 70 ******* dollars a piece for an inaccurate overpriced low quality hunk of mechanical ******* trash. FOUR BOOST GAUGES, ALL showed boost when sitting IN THE ******* BOX, BRAND NEW!!!!!

I am going to be buying one to replace my FM one as soon as i get home.

Im not sure if they are all this good, maybe he just happend to get a good one?

For less than 40 bucks im going to try my luck, and if i get one as good as his.. ill be happy as can be.
Not in a Miata with the top down in the daylight in the 3 gauge above radio bezel. I love the look and the performance was good but mine was unreadable in the daylight with the top down which was about 90% of my driving.

I prefer electronic, but some say mechanical.

P.S. 5 seconds on google scored me this.

I've got the extra faces and stuff, but I don't think white/silver would look right when the rest of the car is straight black.

I ended up with the Z series gauge...I'll post pictures as soon as I can steal a camera from a roommate.
