    i think they have different kinds of senders. eg the bolt holes are spaced differently. length is all good.

    looking at the stock one in the car seems like be a hassle to wire up when this costs $17

    You get one of those for free if you order 5 or 6 gauges

    I need to talk to a mate of mine who has done a lot of research into LED lighting. Not sure whether dropping the voltage or running a high frequency PWM would work better as a dimmer. The latter would need to have a switching frequency high enough to ensure the human eye cannot detect the flicker.

    I'll put up pics later. Basically the gauges were frikkin awesome save for the 8krpm tacho when it should have been a 10k (small glitch in the online ordering system led to a human error occurring - simple mistake really). So anyways, I contacted them, let them know the issue, and they said send back the incorrect item and they would send me the right one. The correct one was on its way the next day.

    All has turned up now, and it looks great. Can't compliment their after sales service enough.

    well everyone who is interested speedhut is offering a 15% discount on all there guages and if you put this code in at the start (toymods2011) at the end if you have ordered more than 5 guages you will get another 15%. not much time left on this offer so get on it as 30% dosent happen very often.

    cheers mat

    Note the agricultural packaging. You can see that they are hand done, and the packaging is actually quite minimal, and generally recyclable. It does however protect the gauges very well in transit. I commend Speedhut in their efforts to keep excessive packaging down.
