Hi Paul. I bought a Autometer brand one from O/S off ebay. They were all in F but I just sent the seller a message asking if he could do the same model in C and he said no worries. I think it cost me $165 aus including postage. Unless you have other VDO gauges in your car I'd have a good look at the Autometer range. They have plenty of different style gauges and they look alot better than the bland VDO ones that I've seen.

TD100, I bought an ISSPRO colour coded gauge from the states, for the life of me can't think from whom, turmoil here as I am shifting. Colour coded one very easy to check at a glance. Image Could Not Be FoundImage Could Not Be Found

Try Sgesco this is where I got mine from. Have no idea if there prices are good or not, like you though, I wanted the VDO so as to match the other 50000000000000000 vdo gauges I have hehehehe.

Cheers, Trevor.

Hi Paul

Do you remember the one I put in my old 80? It was from Ian on this site. Thermoguard instruments are the way to go and the same price as a vdo guage. I find the VDO ones read very slowly compared to Ians one. It is pretty well instant. His service is very good and very quick delivery as well.
