Which VDO boost gauge should I keep and which to sell?

I have both of these gauges and I am only going to keep one of them. Which would you guys keep and which would you sell?

Thanks.. I am leaning towards the 934 VDO as a Keeper but I have no reset key for it...BUT!! I also like the ANDAIL/VDO as well.. it's a clean looking gauge. The sare 100% the same aside from the tattle.

I might be interested in whichever one you decide to sell depending on price.

Has anyone had any problems with the tattle gauge? I can see no problems with the ANDAIL gauge as in the tattle not working or the tab snapping.... that is all I have been told about so far.....


Mark,
I'll let you know.... I can tell you though both gauges are not that cheap...ask me how I know. They are or atleast seem to be rather rare.. the ANDIAL more so that the 934 style....so when they pop up they normally go for a decent amount. I'll let you know either way though.

FYI - The VDO tattle tale broke on mine after one year. I have heard that from others as well.

Yeah, I have heard of that being an issue.. I'd LOVE to keep both but I can't I'd like to recoup a bit of the money spent on the 934 style... I'll still keep it. and hope for the best! I know ANDIAL / RUF used the VDO with out the tattle there may be a reason for that.
Thanks for the input though..that's why I was asking to see if it was a bit issue.

I bought a key from NHS for about $10 IIRC. The tattle would stick and keep the indicator from reading true. I just adjusted it over 1 bar so it was out of the way for all boost levels I ran.
