Default Re: Gauging interest in building custom digital gauges

Even when I was racing SCCA Nationals in GT cars, the only time I checked gauges was on a straight. Then again I had really big and bright warnings for low pressures and high temps.. Think LED's aimed at your eyeballs.

Yes, seriously. The placement is terrible. Youíre boosted, so you know just how worse it is for FI guys, especially in diagnoses mode.

Alpina had the correct solution for E36 add-on gauges.

Default Re: Gauging interest in building custom digital gauges

I went with the RallyRoad setup for dual pod gauges on the steering wheel, with color-shifting oil/water temp gauges (blue/green/red for cold/good/BADBADBAD). Great for track use, kinda obnoxious for street use. Something like the Alpina would be amazing for street.

My only qualm with any of the digital gauges is you aren't able to see rates of change, and need a bit more mental processing than a go/no go with colors/needle position.
