    If theft is a problem in your area I would go with the bezel setup.

    Neither, I think you should go with a DIN-sized panel with three gauges in it. Defi makes a kickass setup for a DIN gauge cluster with boost, oil pressure, and EGT and they look awesome at night.

    I agree. Get something you can see easily and still cover up when you park. I'd throw then in a DIN slot and make a custom cover than you can place on top. If that's not an option for you, go with the gauge cluster spot. At least that looks semi-stock. You don't want to announce to all the thieves and cops that you're running something extra under the hood.

    theres not much space for a DIN in the 5g hatch though. it'd have to hang just below the dash or something. i dont know where else it could go.

    chris where would you put a DIN in your hatch?

    edit: DAMN i just checked the defi prices... uhh.. they do look nice tho :D

    I have both the triple pillar and the instrument bezel for a/f ratio, boost, water temp, egt and volts.

    depends on what kind of set up you're going to be running I guess. I mean you don't need all the ones I have if you're going turbo I just have them cause I've had the volts and water temp lying around. I had the instrument bezel for $20 and I got the triple pillar for free so I used both.

    din is simply a word used to describe the size of automotive things. most automotive cdplayers are single din sized, some cars come with double din decks, many companies advertise this way sice its an easy way to relate to your car.

    companies like Greddy use 1/4 din size for stuff like profec b or their turbo timer, where you could put 4 of them in the space where your deck originally was.

    Invest in the JDM optional center console. It's 120 dollars and is SUCH an improvement over the 007 cupholders in front of the shifter. Plus, it has a double DIN sized place to put your gauges and your weed... I mean EQ. :ph34r:

    If it's something you need to constantly monitor, than put it in the bezel, if it's something you don't have to stare at while driving, Get a console and put them in the DIN. The pillar is a road sign to thievryville.
