  • Temprature gauges

    Im looking into a temprature gauge to monitor the engine temprature. Whats the best one to get? Oil or water temprature?

    Water is handy because the car never came with one. Although it is possible to view this from the settings menu

    I prefer oil temp though as shows me when the turbo is safely warmed up and can also roughly gauge if you are losing oil from it too

        I like those with the digital readouts!

        Mine just came with analogue gauges:

              If I was you then I'd definitely go water as you know to warm your car up and down so have a rough idea when it's gonna be hot before you boot it

                Ok. I'll take your advise. Ahaha.

                Guessing it taps into the water temprature sensor?

                  I bought mine as a full kit with a replacement water housing and thermostat with it taped so it was just plug and play
