Where to Mount Gauges?

Where do you owners mount your gauges for your 6th gen?

I'm debating between an A Pillar gauge pod vs the one mounted next to the spedometer.

What do you guys use? and where is the best location to get one that fits well?

I've got mine on either side of the speedo. It's a decent spot, but you cant see the first 1000 rpm or so on the tach...not really a biggie.

Pillar pods are nice, but to me it just screams "I have expensive parts on my car steal me please". just my .02

What about something like this?



I think Nexon builds stuff like that, I'm sure he can hook you up with that.

I have mine next to the speedometer...I want to move them though. Thought about the A-pillar but I don't like that...that's where people who aren't boosted put their fake boost gauge, next to the window where it's visible. I thought about trying to mount it up top in the sunglasses holder.
