yeah, they were cool at first but after about a year i got tired of them. the ones i got, i can change the color between 6 different shades of green or blue, and can control the intensity of the light so it's tolerable (if i turn it all the way up, i can hardly see at night cause the interior is too brightly lit), but i just think a good backlit set of gauges looks cleaner at night. in the daytime they look great though, just like any set of white-face gauges. i guess my tastes changed cause when i bought those gauges (in 2003) i loved em.

those are OK, but do they not look a lil ricey to you? And those ones off ebay only go up to 7k rpms, so I'm not about to have to guess my RPMS every time I look at the tac.

yeah those look a little ricey. are you absolutely set on white-face gauges, or just something different from what you have now? the stock Mach 1 gauges look awesome IMO.

Im pretty set on white just because of the color of the interior and stuff on my car. The tan interior will really be set off by white gauges I think. autometer gauge cluster? links?

those are the ones i have, i only dis like the inner red line part?the smaller half circle.. but they just slide over the needles and you can adjust the brightness. got em to match the white faced guages in the pillar
