As the title says. I am having trouble finding A pillar gauge pods for any Mini. Looking to buy one for '09 Clubman S. Just looking to do something different from others who mount to the rev... I have looked everywhere I could. Maybe just not in the right place...which is why I am here and posting this..

Anybody know of such a place?

I found one guy on MU that made a custom fiberglass A gauge pod.



But I am trying to see if there may be some mini conscience company out there that may have these in the OEM style plastic..

got an a pillar gauge pod from ebay for 28pound. and 2 gauges for 54pound even tho you didn't want to no that i havent had any problems with them to be honest. looks like the normal mini dash plastic and fits the pillar perfect just 2 screws hold in place.

Can BMW fit gauges after you bought the car? Would like a boost and oil pressure either side of tacho behind the steering wheel. That way I why I can see what the engine is doing a bit better and OEM units tie in with the interior and are quite subtle so won't look chavy.

The reason they are not sold for the Mini and most newer cars is due to the gauges becoming a projectile in the event of an accident where the side curtain airbag deploys.

Gauge in the face at airbag speed does not sound like a fun time :)
