What gauge pod and gauges are those?

The center pod is made by ATI and the cluster pod is made by Autometer. The gauges are Defi, BF series gauges (boost, EGT, Oil press., Oil Temp, Fuel press.)

They look great in there.  Do the gauges light up green at night?  If so, I'm sold; they're going on my Christmas List.   cool

Yes, they are a very close match to the stock cluster. However I think they may have been discontinued. They are still out there, but getting harder to find. They are amazing gauges! A little pricey, but well worth the money. If you can find them used that would save you a good chunk of change.

Question: How do you plan on treating the jizz stains/vaginal secretions from your passenger seat?  I can imagine you're amassing quite a bit.

Looks great!  Though, if it were possible to change the logo on the steering wheel, I'd keep it a Saab logo.

That doesn't matter. There just enjoying what I did to the car. Nothing wrong with that! I put a lot of hard work into it and it's nice to hear that people still get a kick out of it!

Thought I'd throw this in here. This is the new steering wheel project I did on my Red 06.

I would assume so, the damd wheel did. This one looks easier? Is that the airbag charge from the stock wheel?

Re: Installed a new steering wheel today!

Yeah, you have to use an aftermarket stereo for the controls to work. It is definitely easier than making the 08 audio and cruise controls work. No need to swap charges either as your factory airbag bolts right into the Legacy wheel.

Re: Installed a new steering wheel today!

I take it it's the same thickness as the stock wheel, no?

Good job.

Re: Installed a new steering wheel today!

Yes, I believe it is very simmilar thickness to the stock wheel. It does have a different feel to it though, which I like.  up
