the gauges look very nice, and im sure most work pretty well. But my Oil Pressure gauges does NOT work properly. They are very clean though, and would reccomend any gauge other than Oil Pressure. Could just be my car though. These gauges are very common on Subaru's.

I got the white 7 series oil pressure gauge.
You can see CLEARLY during day time with no lights
I heard some people have problems seeing during the day with the tinted series,

I have the 7color black tinted series and the oil gauge works for me but it seems to stick alittle, also i wish i would have gotten the none tinted as it is hard to see in the day time when the sun hits it, but the main thing i don't like is if i set it to a diffrent color say white, after turning the car off and on a time or two some or all of them go back to the first color (blue). also i really wish one of the colors was amber, thats the only one i want. i belive theres a new 10 color one that says it has amber but im not sure if it matches up.

I have an oil pressure guage (electrical) and a volt meter gauge. They seem to work well, but the oil pressure gauge reads wierd sometimes. I have always wondered if something was wrong. I grounded the sending unit to the oil pan, using on of the bolts. What did ya'll do for the sending unit ground?

my water temp gauge sometimes jumps arounds very quickly like up to 250 down to 140 very damn quickly, and then it just sits about 150, somethin probably loose,

The point of having a gauge is to give you some more comfort than just a dern light that tells you something after its too late. I believe now after my experience with this electrical gauge that I will go for a mechanical one next time.

i'm with vans on this one, their oil pressure gauge is very inaccurate..
Sometimes it'll read at 0 psi while idling, i though i had a problem with my oil pump or something. I've had this gauge for close to a year now..
I want to go with a mech one but i heard too many stories of oil being dumped in the interior..

I think i'll go with an electric autometer,
i wouldn't go with glowshift again..(PS they have great customer service though)

Hey Zuptidi! If you get that autometer guage let me know how it does! I hate that the GS gauges are kind of cheaper...they look great and are easy to match to an interior..I guess maybe they spent more time on the looks than function though..lol.
