most of them are backlit and come with a green and red bulb cover depending on how you wan't it to look at night,

Also I am going with a boost gauge that only goes to 20 PSI, my engine only boosts at 12 and I have no plans of really pushing it so it will appear to have more boost than if you use a gauge going to 30psi where my needle wouldn't even reach half.

I don't know how a gauge has a bare bones look, I will take accuracy over the cool looking pro sport each and every day out the week, but I have been researching gauges for 2 months, and haven't put any in yet lol. Autometer gauge's have a very low failure rate. having one cheap gauge fail on you negates any savings you had in the first place.

I guess kinda basic
