    I would link you to the Auto Gauge one I bought but the place selling it doesn't seem to be around any more.

    Also, the sender part of it doesn't seem to be too reliable. One went wonky and I got a replacement and that went wonky earlier this year so I disconnected the gauge - just need to physically remove it from my guage.

    So I wouldn't, on my experience, recommend the Auto Gauge ones if that's a common problem with them. The only other gauge I've used is the BSR one which I replaced (and still have somewhere) when I got my S3 as it only went up to 1.5 bar and that was going to be what the S3 was running so I wanted a bit more scope on the gauge.

    Yep, the BSR one worked nicely and looks okay too. As I said I only changed from it when the boost was upped in S3.

    I got mine from Parts for Saabs but they don't seem to be listing it on the web site. Maybe worth a call to them.

    I'll get a pic of where it locates too mate. On another note might has had problems since fitting the gauge as it goes into limp mode if you floor the throttle then immediately lift off, not something I do very often, but it happened today for the first time in a long time, but easily avoidable. Must just be a leak or the variation in boost in short bursts creates a slightly off reading.
