There really isn't much of a "best." it's really all preference.

VDO is one of the best on the market for the price. Considering 90% of the cars on the road seem to have VDO gauges from factory lol.

I used to use the VDO in an APR pod. Here is what it used to look like at night

It is a little red cap that came with the APR kit. The bulb is white.
Edit: You can see it in this pic.

I don't have a B5, but I'd venture, things aren't too different gauge selection wise. I went Podi P2 with a Defi Boost and Depo Racing Oil temp. The colors pretty much match up, though my cell phone doesn't quite capture them as they look in person. Dark and Light comparo......
