im not sure what are the best brands these days (apart from defis), I havent had gauges in years.
WMI trader: scoobyparts.com may be able to help you

re pillar or dash mount, it comes down to personal taste I guess, i prefer pillar as i just dont like the look of dash mounts from the front of the car through the windscreen

hope that helps a little

Speak to David at API about it. The gauges he fitted for me are decent and if you decide to go for a pillar mount, give me a shout. Ive got one laying about somewhere at work.

Defis are by far the best. A used set will do the job. Try [email protected] he usually has a few sets in with pods, just make sure you get the sensors included. I prefer a dash mounted pod as I find it more visible but it's just down to personal preference.

I`m after a decent 2 gauge pillar pod, Ideally one that replaces the A-Pillar, Anyone know the best place to get one, Only seen 1 half decent looking one for around 55 but cant remember where it was, I`ve already got the 3 gauge dash pod and with defi`s and a JDM cluster it looks

Gaz.

This style of Pod is about 80 and the guages are about 50 each, think carefully what guages you need.

Sorry, I was looking on my iphone and your avatar wasnt on the page. Ive got a new 2 pod for a blobeye a-pillar for sale. I got it in case API suggested fitting any extra gauges during my build, but David felt no need for any other than the ones we already had. I will take a couple of pics and text them to you if you want.

Try ebay and what size were you looking for.

I prefer dash gauges because the pillar gagues seem to cause a bigger blind spot. I know the classic was really but but the newage seems to be better.

Sit in a few cars with both and then decide. At the end of the day its going to be you behind the wheel.
