The defi 52mm gauges have the aluminium lip around the face. The back of the casing for actual gauge is 52mm but the lip is about 54mm. They actually come with a black plastic ring that slides over this, but it wouldn't fit and plus I think it looks ricer

I could file the gauge panel openings but I fear I would fuck it up and then have skew gauges!

I actually never noticed it until now. In person it looks perfect, maybe camera angles are causing the issue?

If you look at the instrument cluster, the DCT rev and speedo have a chunky Ali lip so it looks right in that regard

Defi gauges are the best looking ones if you ask me.

you should take some night shots or vid the start up.

They definitely are and they are the best functioning gauges to i.t.o. accuracy etc.

Herewith night shots and video links of the start up and shut down

I have not connected the sensors for oil pressure and water temp yet, that's why those flash red. connecting up this weekend

Looks sweet. Now if they could move the steering wheel, gauges and pedals to the other side, I could drive it

Here's the link of the sells I bought from on eBay. Really good pricing and service. If you bought three gauges and control unit I'm sue you could get all for around $700
