      Glad everything worked out well with the after-market gauge set-up. I'm going
      to be visiting the NY Auto Show today (Easter Sunday) and will probably be
      lurking around from 10 A.M. to about 1 P.M. or a bit longer. If you arrive there
      at a time when I might still be there, give me a call on my cell phone and we can
      meet up at the VW section. Cell Phone # 347-615-4876.

      Just curious, where did you find an aftermarket gauge setup? Is it the same as the factory one?

      Harvey - The oil temp gauge can be connected to the small Universal Oil Temp Adaptor that
      simply replaces the OEM oil drain plug. It contains a connector where the wire from the oil
      temp gauge can connect to. The company that made it is the same company that made the
      metal sleeve I sent you that connects to the upper radiator hose and allows you to connect
      the wire from the water temp gauge to it. The company is:
      www.42draftdesigns.com and their phone number is 410-923-0411 if you need tech assistance.

      Anyone interested in setting up your own 3 gauge pod like Harvey's, please note that
      there is only one black pod that will fit in the recessed area of the center-upper-dash.
      It is a Universal Triple Gauge Pod from www.glowshift.com and is called - Universal
      Triple Gauge Console Dash Pod - Item #GS-UD3 - $14.99 (sale price). The measurements
      are W- 9.5" - D- 4.5" - H- 3.0". The pod holds any 52mm round gauges which translates
      to 2-1/16" each
