what trim is your AFR?
I was looking at those gauges in black trim, but for some reason I can only find a picture of the AFR in nickel/polished trim.

I have these gauges on my Turbo 7 Series - AFR, Boost, and Oil Temp.

They are great. I also have the wideband routed into my Standalone ECU for Target based fueling and vacuum feed into a MAP sensor. Speed density is better than MAF

They came with silver rings and if I recall correctly, silver inserts for the inside.

Here is a pic (I went with black/black):

+1. Stack gauges are very high quality for not much more than AEM.

I have had the AEM wideband and the AEM Truboost and in my experience the AEM wideband was not very accurate or consistent from a tuning standpoint.

It was pretty useless.
