Default any gauge pod solutions for GR??

Anyone know if theres any gauge pods that are supposed to come out for our GRs? Preferably something that would go somewhere in the center console? Like maybe the little tray below the AC controls? I'm thinking about getting boost, EGT and oil pressure... and I'm just fearing how stupid it might look with all 3 on the steering column.

If no one knows of any, or any thats in production, or someone thats supposed to be designing one, post up! Also, feel free to post other gauge pod solutions, whether its steering column, or A-pillar.

Thanks in advance

Nothing good is out yet. FTL. I am waiting patiently. I heard a rumor Autometer is coming out with a dash bezel for the GR like they had for GD. I hope it's true because I loved that pod.

^^^ I heard from one of Autometer's vendors that they are currently working on something.

Yes there are a lot of universal options out there. But none of them will give the integrated OEM look some of us are after.

I gave up waiting a while back and got the subaru gauges, rumors of products never materialized for some reason, dragged way too long. Harman Motive had 2 mounted in the tray on their 08, but never made a product of it

I think the 09 WRX should jumpstart the aftermarket for these cars. I think it will be popular enough to increase the demand for this kind of stuff. Too bad about the economy crapping out. I'm sure companies are a little more cautious about releasing new products right now.

Last I heard.. someone was already working on it... but only in carbon fiber.. which is a no-go for me.

Yeah, not really feeling today's carbon fiber craze either. Call me arrogant but I think the CF look is not that suiting for the "Grown up STI" Then again, functional CF is cool, like the weight savings from a CF trunk, etc... but a gauge pod, come on now... nothing else in the car is carbon fiber.

Then again, I'm sure we could always buy said CF pod and paint it.
