View Full Version : Passat Boost gauge ??

Thinking about buying this set up. Wondering if anyone knew if it will fit a B5 A4 even though its for a B5 passat. The one they make for B5 A4's covers the display this one doesn't since it's to the side. I know i saw a post awhile ago for someone making these for our cars. But this is only 78.00 with the gauge.

it looks like the column is the same. If I was a betting man, I'd say yes it will fit. But it's not my money lol.

or you can go with this one:

this one is designed specifically for the A4 for the same price, unless you are set on the offset look.

i heard that the passat one will work with a little triming

thats a sweet find but i would not want it covering up my rpm tach at all. there is one that is going to come out pretty soon that is on the other side and covers up part of the speedo. like the 0-15mph portion of it. i think that one would be better

why would you need exhaust temp? the b5's already have tons of info..rpms, fuel, oil temp, coolant, speed..boost is all you really need imo

I think the passat one would look the best, IMO. I like how the gauge is offset to the side so you can still see the information panel and still keep a somewhat-oem look.

i was thinking you could put a boost in the one side and a a/f ratio one in the other

if you want a clean and easy readable guage then this is the best option. it allows Allow up to 5 sensors to be display on your trip computer.

-Valentine One display (V1 main unit not included)
-Oil temp



my buddy chris has it on his stg 3 S4 and it is awesome
