keep it old school volvo and get the vdo. the R gauge is for the S60R's it will look out of place.

only problem with the raliteck gauge is that the lens is tinted so lots of ppl say in daylight you can not see it.

The vdo gauge has the worst back lighting ive ever seen, even with a brighter bulb I put in. and the needle is sticking, so time for a new one. Wont hurt getting something with some decent lighting and a little more modern looking.

dude, i had the theme of the car set up as old school and the ralitech one does not fit. thats the point of the gauge looking how it does with crappy lighting, BECAUSE the whole rest of the interior is crappily lit. now you have a gauge that doesnt match the oil pressure one and air fuel one. that **** is gonna look so out of place and ricey as ****

the needle is def not sticking its called boost spike the needle is just jumping. and seriously? i never had a problem reading the boost gauge. return that ralitech one and paint those damn bumpers asap stop ruining my car

And the vdo only goes to 20 psi, so how are we going to turn the boost up for the dyno (saturday) when well be maxing out the gauge??

can you relax a little bit please? I did pay you for the car and you are driving an R now because of it. nothing im doing is not undo able. Its little meaningless ****, and i have to look at the gauge everyday not you.
