Gauges

I was just wondering if anyone knew of a good place to look for gauges. I know it's the simplest thing. Also if there is one brand or type better then the other? The ones I have know who ever put them in decided that they don’t need to see how fast they are going at night. Yeah so they have the stock back lights but the gauges are solid and only the needle glows haha you can't see anything...
~Thanks

I have a set of eurolite blue carbon guages. I saw them in a prelude I test drove once, and fell in love. Plus, I love the color blue(my car) and I love carbon fiber.

So I bought new ones and found out last night that the old ones work fine but some of the wires are frayed and I actually have a wiring issue what fun so needless to say putting the new ones in is not as easy as I thought it would be. On the other hand the new ones match the car because they are orange and black plus and this is my fave part they glow purple and pink at night could they be any more girly I love them

So we are on day three of putting the gauges in haha it sucks so not only do I have a wiring issue with the gauges but the genius who put the gauges in before me obviously didn't know his little finger from a wire. All I can say is it's a good thing I have small hands haha because it's not easy to get in there, but I found the problem and they will be in today finally! lol and they left the stock ones under the other ones and they happen to be orange and black haha so I am back to stock til I get the other ones in

Btw if anyone knows any tricks to making it easier to put the gauges in then please share haha

Got one question. Did you find your car at a dealership? If so, is the hood orange and black? I have seen it before and liked it, but did not want an SH.

Yeah I did and yeah it's carbon fiber with the sides painted. Yeah it's a sh but it has the jdm swap (engine and Tranny) so it doesn't have the ATTS. But she does have leather, premium wheels, power everything...pretty much has it all :) and the inside is in mint cond. I love it, it was a def score lol

call Darren at APEX'i ASAP if you want an oil pressure gauge kit. He has a blowout sale on white faced EL oil pressure gauge. I bought a new one to replace my busted one for 60 dollars. Comes with the gauge, harness and sending unit. You need the control unit for it to work tho.

His extension is 107
