I like the look of those spa gauges, are these the ones?

I have autometer carbon gauges in my car and dont mind them but probably wouldnt buy them again

the spa seems more user friendly with indicators in similar place and rev and mph similar to a road car

I had digital spa gauges in my evo pillerpod mainly as 2 in one gauge seemed good utilization of space but the awful to read compared to analogue gauge, with analogue you end up learning the needle positions & it takes a split second to see a difference, with digits it harder to read & you can't see a change as fast as need read it fully.
spa analogue woody linked to is a favourite of mine, not cheap though :-( but very very good :-P

Yeah that's a good point about the digital gauges. It might also depend what you are using the gauge for, a temp gauge might be alright in digital, where as something like boost might be harder to read in digital as it's fast moving.

Yep boost was a right cock in digital, even things like temp was a pain as need focus to read digits while with analogue you can kind of see out corner of eye that needle in ok range .
will never use digital again myself, those spa analogue have neat features & are real nice to fit & use .

I guess some is personal preference & I found mine was analogue.
Like you mentioned though woody, picking certain parameters for digital use could help.
Not a big fan of digital dash myself, bit like the wheel really & don't need reinventing. Good old fashioned switches & sliders are cool too as can feel the position without need look at it, on my forester the fan control is on a jog dial with illumination steps round edge, got take your eyes off road use it while in the R you can click through fan speed & vent settings like it brale lol :-)

Yeah that's very true, sometimes traditional ways are the best Smile these are how I did my gauges at the moment. Works well for me.
