Mine had the telltale needle Bosch boost gauge when I bought the car and it works perfectly too. I love having that needle there.

Another use for it is if you are in a situation where you have no choice other than to valet park... you can set the needle back to zero and then see where it is when you get your car back from the valet guy...
You could take a picture of it before valeting the car with a little pocket digital camera and if the time is set correctly on your camera then the time and all the camera settings when you took the pic are embedded in that pictures exif data.

You then have proof they were joyriding in your car... and I'm sure they don't let it idle a couple minutes to cool down the turbo after that.
