I had never heard of Speedhut before this evening, but they offer an interesting designer option... custom-configured, full-sweep electric boost gauges:

Boost only, 0 to 30psi, $109.99: http://www.speedhut.com/el_det...hcp=1

Boost and Vacuum, -30 to +20psi, $169.99: http://www.speedhut.com/el_det...hcp=1

Once you choose the gauge you want, scroll to the bottom and configure it to your liking. You can toggle between day and night views. I might purchase the following when I put together my car's Christmas present (new nav system with boost gauge installed to the left of the double-din opening):

Boost/vacuum gauge with reverse-EL glow, metallic silver face with dark blue text, "Eurostyle" font, free added text "VOLVOSPEED", "anodized black" bezel, and a red pointer.

I can't decide which bezel color would look best, though... the anodized black, silver or blue are all attractive. I'm thinking the blue bezel would clash with the R's gauges - different shade of blue. Also, if you trust them to do it right, and you don't think 13 on your car are enough, you can upload a custom "R" logo for an additional $25.

Your thoughts?

It's 2:15am. No, the bar didn't just close. The baby is teething, so no one gets to sleep lately...

Sweet find!

I bet Frank will be purchasing red face with flames, anodized red bezel, white Euro lettering and white pointer. Looks hot.

Good thing all websites aren't this much fun. If they were, I'd be spending a ton of money and time on purchases. Wait a minute, I'm already spending a ton. Make that 2 tons. Thanks for the web link!

Ironically just a few miles away from you we were up with our daughter who is also teething. But I didn't have the energy to be online...

Re: Found a new gauge option (Quick Brick)

That looks great. Now all we need is a brushed aluminum guage pod meant to fit in the cubby to the left of the radio. I know someone had a large aluminum piece made to house 3 guages where the origional radio was. Any idea where one could possible have this made?
