glow shift gauges (are they worth it)

ive been in the market for gauges for my 5th gen for awhile now. i want something i can see during the day but lights up at nite. i saw online glow-shift brand of gauges and they seem pretty cheap but i dont know how good they are. has anyone ever used them? an if so were ur results positive?

also which autometer gauge has a nice color at nite, because i am leanin toward maybe gettin the name brand (auto meter) over this one which i havent really heard anything about.

I'd like to know what you think of GlowShift gauges. Check out the video (which also has some pictures of my ride) below and post your opinion. Depending on your feedback, I may pursue their gauges for my PT Cruiser (and every viewer of the video helps me along that path).

You need a delay for fuel gauge, the factory gauge has one so doesn't do what yours is doing.

Does it have its own sending unit in tank or does it just read off factory sending unit? I will try to find part number for delay so you can get fuel gauge to not flop like fish out of water.

Also they are good gauges, if I didn't have Tunerview 2 I would be rocking them in my car.
