In car system displays, oil temp, coolant temp etc

Post by nastypoker » Thu May 02, 2019 5:51 pm

So there are 2 gauges that I am aware of that are "proper".

The P3 gauge which has one number up at a time so you could set it to oil temp and just leave it. Pretty good but new costs £400-£600 depending on where you look.

The Awron screen which looks BADASS but the only place I can see it for sale wants 900 Euros + shipping and no doubt some import duty for the LCI version + exhaust flap control.

All I really want is oil temperature but it seems the only way to do this for a reasonable price is to have a crappy looking ebay gauge or have a phone with a bluetooth OBD reader which I really don't want. I already have my phone for sat nav and calls on my dash so I don't want another.

Anyone know of some other option I haven't seen?

Hidden background menu is free, bit of a faff if you want it up every single journey though.

Looks similar to the Race Diagnostics liquid gauges that used to be available for Audi’s, these fitted in one of the air vents and connected to the OBD port. Looked very OEM too.
