      Loving It! Thanks for the update and keep them coming.

      Edit: I did notice that in the pic of the gauge, it looks like there is a lot of light leaking around the hub of the needle. I double checked this morning and the gauges in the car do not have this light leak. Is it possible to fix this light leak?

      As stated, ignore the needle hub design as this is a test needle.

      Podi will ensure that these gauges are perfect when they are finally released. That's why we're waiting.

      So you said the LED is not bright enough, does that mean this one is tossed and you need to keep looking for one?

      Looking good, other than that light leak around the needle hub, but I've been told not to look at that right now.

      ive almost forgotten about this. im really torn as if i should keep it in the vent or get a column mount. ive started to get used to the vent placement with my newsouth gauge, but when i first put it in i was bent on getting the column mount. anyone with experience with both of these mount positions could chime in.

      YYYEEESSS!!!!!! So close. I think I may need to change my shipping address as I am moving soon. But it is looking awesome! Hopefully that light bleed at the hub is better (but I am trying to ignore it like I was told)

      @ CTS Turbo - any chance you could contact Podi and get an estimated delivery date for these? next month? 3 months? thanks!

      If you have ordered from Podi you can contact them directly @ greg@podi.ca or winston@podi.ca

      As mentioned earlier we're a dealer for Podi, but we've posted this informational thread after the initial thread was shut down. We don't know specifics about anyone's orders or delivery dates, only the updates that Podi provides us with, which we post here.

      Finalized pics?
      As in just pics processed or are you saying this is going to be the product that will be put into production?

      Any info on where we stand now? Is the LED good now?

      CTS Thanks for hosting this thread for us/Podi. I do have a quick question regarding your intake though. Do you offer a heat shield similar to the one offered by EVOMS? if not will the EVOMS one fit with your intake?

      Thanks again, and I look forward to those finalized pics.

      The prototype gauge has arrived at Podi and here are some untouched daytime images to show you the needle color match.

      Podi tried to take night time pics with my small Canon SD camera but could not correctly capture the hue of blue.

      Podi will be heading to CTS tomorrow to install the gauge in our Golf R to see how close the night time illumination is to the OEM cluster.

      No problem ginsy, here is a picture of our heat shield that a customer sent in to us, as you can see the heat shield surrounds the filter element on all sides. If you have any questions feel free to drop us a PM:

      To my eyes, a perfect match! Looks good enough to get me off the dime and order one!

      i believe that he was referring to the heat shield that EVOMS offers that installs above the exhaust manifold.

      Winston said that the needle lit up looks great but the camera could not capture the color correctly.

      Podi will be installing tomorrow on the Golf R to compare how the gauge needle looks when lit up compared to the factory needles. Only then can they determine if they got it right.
