There have been lots of threads about the minimal gauges in the Sols and Skys. At this time it seems that the only viable method to have more gauges is mounting them somewhere in you line of sight. Choice "a" is on the dash and choice "b" is on the left windshield pillar. Since I don't have my RL yet I can't get a good look at choice "a". However, EVERY car has a A pillar. So I went looking for gauge pods. I found Lotek, Inc. Google it and see what you think. If they get enough inquiries they might make them for the Kappas. Hope so. I'll buy one for sure.

Stinkin guages

We don't need no stinkin' guages.

Okay I suppose sometimes they do provide useful info - but generally speaking I spend more time looking at what is outside the car - generally only look at the gas guage and the trip odometer to figure out how much farther I can go before I need gas. The guages and sensors I use are my ears - and the seat of my pants.

I checked out their web site and I think a set of gauges would look great on the pillar.:thumbs:
I for one like gauges...not only are they eye candy they are functional.
I do not trust or like idiot lights.:banghead:

Did you post this on the Sol Forum.

Personally I'm not a race car driver and don't need the race car/racer boy look. If there were an option for more guages in the dash that kept the lines clean I'd be all for it but on the pilar is not for me. If that's what you like then by all means go for it.

Snaponbob I would probably also be looking for a set of guages for my redline, maybe they could even come up with a set of micro cameras to display enhanced side views on the pillar now that would also be helpful:thumbs:

Same as the Cobalt.:willy:

When I asked my salesrep if the instrument cluster would be the same on the Redline and he replied yes it would, except for the turbo gauge, I told him that the design team really blew that one... he explained that they were going for a motorcycle style instrument cluster... I said, it's not a motorcycle and we both started laughing.
