Default Additional instruments

Hi.
I wonder if someone here has already fitted some additional instruments for Oil Pressure, Oil Temperature and Coolant Temperature.



I'm trying to find a good place for fitting them.


Thx. !

Do you mean round normal dials? Or some other type of dials?

At a local meet some years ago, there was a ZT that had a "pod" of dials fitted vertically on drivers side the "A" pillar. Looked pretty good, but obviously not suitable if you have air bags fitted there.

No idea how it impacted the drivers view though, but didn't look as if it would make much difference .

My Xtrons aftermarket double DIN head unit does all that and more via a Bluetooth reader the diagnostic port.

Would prefer the round ones. Remember my old BMW had a case for fitting 3 round ones on the cockpit desk.
