Depends which gauge pod you buy, and whether you make the mistake of drilling holes through the airbag assembly during installation. In any event, it's probably a good idea to use epoxy to help hold the pod in place, to greatly increase the amount of force needed to pop the pod off the airbag cover in a crash. The airbag will still work; it comes out from the side of the pillar closer to the door than the windshield, thereby smashing the pod into the windshield instead of your face.i was thinking along those lines, but i have an airbag there. i would like for it to stay there. or does the Apillar go over that, without disrupting the AB mechanism?
you could dump the in dash player for an MP3 device and an AUX input, freeing up a DIN spot also.This will cost some money, but I am thinking the only truly satisfactory option is to replace my single-DIN Monsoon head unit and my single-DIN in-dash CD player with a single-DIN combined radio/CD head unit, which would then free up one DIN for a triple gauge set (oil temperature, oil pressure, boost). The other option is to replace the in-dash CD player with a wayback-mounted CD changer.
search for gauges. i was looking through them and found an electronic multi gauge posted. i'd find it but i don't care to look again, and it wasn't cheapwhat's the cheapest and best way to install guages into my car for the features most other cars have, but VW left off?
i saw a screen mounted in a radio device cubby-hole. but i want something cheaper, and more simplistic.
actually, i think that might be an interesting idea to have. would sure as hell look awesome.you could dump the in dash player for an MP3 device and an AUX input, freeing up a DIN spot also.
just as...not free as the changer, but another option.
