    it a HUD gauge (heads up display). i other words a tach/speedo that is projected onto the windshield. i think it would be iffy if your facing the sun, but bad ass at night.

    it's a plus for dx's w/o tachs, or someone who want JDM gauges.

    why the fuck would you want that? you got a tach and a speedo like 5 inches below that....


    maybe if you lost your gauge cluster or somethin.



    it looks cool, but it's a waste of money IMO

    mines a dx. in other words i have no tach. and i think that this is better than a 5 inch ricer tach.

    so get a gauge cluster with a tach.





    and im pretty sure that:

    1. if you don't have a tach in your gauge cluster, an accessory tach is not "rice"

    2. if your motor revs above what your stock tach shows, an accessory tach is not "rice"




    rice is anything that isn't necessary, and purely for looks.


    for insance, a $150 heads-up display

    :withstupid:

    but it would be pretty neat, the speedo reflection on the windshield is pretty cool though, like an old school 240sx.

    A 5 inch monster tach w/shift lght IS rice. IMO

    I don't see how a little number on your windshield is rice. It has indiglo green numbers so its easily seen. Its in plain sight. it DOESN'T change 8 different colors, its not this huge out of place item just sitting on your dash. Hell if you wanted to, you could probably have it resesed in the dash. $150 is about the same price you would pay for a tach that just reads RPM's and has a shift light.

    I have my opinion, you have yours jets just leave it at that. Deal.

    disagree : you just said "Acessory" and tach in the same sentence, if your car didnt come with a tach its probablly bcause it didnt need it. i.e. Civic : CX, DX




    2. if your motor revs above what your stock tach shows, an accessory tach is not "rice"

    Agree. That is all

    i meant if you have like a swap, and you dont have a tach in your gauge cluster.


    like if you put a b16 in a dx.


    and by "Accessory" tach, i meant like a 5" tach or whatever that's mounted separately from your gauge cluster.


    having an accessory tach on a stock motor is pointless as body graffix or wings.

    If you want the HUD, go trade in your Honda and get a Pontiac Grand Prix and grow a mullet.
