After waiting 1 month for the AWE guage, I finally had time to install it
with my Forge 007 DV. Here are the pics of the final finish.
Let me know
what you peeps think.
Lata....
This Was The Pain In The Behind. That Top Clip Was A B****. UGH !

No way! Yours looks great. I'm just hoping my install will be a little easier.

Nice one! I have the AWE 60mm Electric boost gauge in the 42DD pod. I went thru similar pain getting the A-pillar cover off, and YES, that top clip is a right bugger!!!!!
What did you use to remove it? Bentley says there's a special tool, but I had to make my own out of a coat hanger
.
Don't forget to replace the top clip to keep your A-pillar cover secure and YOU safe.

I have to show love to BMW wheels. I am running Alutecs, and would love to have M3's. What size adapters are you planning on running?

Are those m3 wheels replicas or the real deal? If they are all the real deal, did you get four fronts? Good luck with them.

The real M3 rims dont come in chrome...so they gotta be replicas. You can find them on ebay for like $1200-$1500

let me know how it was for you to install those m3 rims. I was planning on doing the same thing myself but i was rather afraid of the whole 5x120 lug adapter thing.

looks nice. That will be sweet with the M3 rims. Where did you get them and how much did they run you? Did they come with tires? Im assuming your running 4 fronts.

I pried it out just by pooking at it, with the needle head plyer. No i did not have to change the pin, it holds like new.
