Looking to see what people have done for aftermarket gauges such as: oil pressure, temp, boost, etc.

I would like to see more console mounted than pillar mounted. Just trying to get ideas of setups and available gauge manufacturers.

thanks!

I went with Maddad gauges. I haven't installed them on my Miata yet but I have a boost gauge from Maddad in my WRX and it works flawlessly. It has some of the features of the Defis (can set peak values, warning light and buzzer, playback) without requiring a controller.

It works well in the car, but it is made for a motorcycle. It picks up the law at a good distance, but my car is a ticket magnet and I usually dont speed.

I bought it because I hate something stuck to the windsheild and cords everywhere, the fact that it will fit into my gauge pod was the big seller.

It took a little modification to make it work/fit, but overall I am pleased with the result. The radar works well, its not a valentine, but it gives me a heads up on the highway.

Remember its for a motorcycle, so get the optional speaker ;)

Its made for a motorcycle so the wiring is much shorter. Had to cut and extend the wiring to the front and rear bumber and mount the speaker under the steering column.

Reverse Glow Gauges ($30 on eBay)










Please forgive my cloud plastic! Im currently looking for a new one.
I'm glad you posted this! I've been looking at these but wondering how they fit and everything. They look good! XD Did you have to change the bulbs or anything? Or do they light up blue like that with no modification?
