Cheap Chinese crap but they work.

Google autogauge / autometer they come with white then when you put your lights on they change to orange. (depending how you wire it up)

Pretty certain you could pull it apart and put in any colour LED you want.

Or if they are stock gauges, it's just a few globes that you change.

neons? god no! thats a good point could just pop a resistor and an led in there if there is no direct replacement bulb.

(the missis loves purple, gotta keep her happy or i wont be able to spend any money on it!)

thanks sydking much appreciated! id love defi, but they are so expensive its crazy! (well to buy from an Australian distributor anyway)

$700 delivered from i think the only australian DEFI distributer.

Thats for the single DIN trippe guage cluster. ( im not keen on dash mounted ect)

true, but i think id rahter pay a bit more to deal with an australian company, If anything goes wrong good luck contacting people in japan/china.

I agree they are pricey, But when youve spent 25K+ on mods what another 700 odd for peice of mind that your readings and warnings are as accurate as can be.

Ive done plenty of searching for a cheaper option though none seem to stand out.

Another one to look into is http://www.flyn.com.au/saber%20gauges.htm

there a lower end guage like autometer, But made in Australia.

fair play! if had the money to spend 25k on mods id be wanting top end gauges, 100% and i guess expense is in the eye of the buyer! im not Australian so i have no loyalty to aussie sellers, i have and will continue to buy "locally" if the customer service is good and i can find value for money. however to find both is very rare. i understand companies have to make a profit on items, but most of the items i find are from china/japan! ill check those flynn gauges out now see if i like em!. thanks again for all your help sydking much appreciated!!
