Our cars aren't sports cars, they aren't rally inspired like the WRX, they aren't made for performance. For some reason, we try to make them just that though.

Re: (Cypher2k)

I was talking to someone the other day about that actually.. i mean hell, even Saabs have factory boost gauges.
They're not the best though.
Personally, i'm more upset that VW doesn't have factory oil temp and oil pressure gauges anymore.

what about that semi new commercial with the guy with the 2 sizes larger right foot. i think VW tries to advertise our cars as sporty only to stick it to us when they fall apart

Yep, the only factory boost gauge worth having is the one in the SRT-4.

the sti has an optional boost gauge on the upper left side of the steering wheel column. it's pretty nice too.

Good for Hondas since they start blowing everything up over 6 psi.
