Any thoughts? Seems like it would make for a really clean look...

I'd really like it if it weren't so flashy. Might put it in my Ford/Cummins project. The price is right! Less then the VDO gauges I have in the SD.

Nice - but I don't know that it would look right in an MB diesel with all the other analog guages...

I like my guages in my TDI except that the led's top out at 25 psi which is not enough with my mods. But I think they would seem out of character in the analog decor of the SDL

The EGT reads in celsius and I got it here:

The embedded LED's for boost from here:

That's super clean! I can see your point on Digital gauges looking out of place. But I think you more than make up for that difference with the cleanliness of a single gauge...
