Colored Gauges Faces Yes or No ?

What do you guys think? Leave them just black or do a custom color?

My car had red faces in it when I bought it. I'm not sure if I would have paid for them but they match the interior and are different. What color are you thinking?

Black is where I'm at. To each his own, but any other color to me looks kinda cheesy. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I too, prefer black gauges. Whenever I hear the words "colored gauges", I think Miami Vice and Gemballa Avalanche.

When bought the car they were red, didn't like them so changed to white. I like them white...

It fits the 80's style of my car...

I have silver faces now. Was wondering if I should go back to black. To be honest I like cars both ways. Kind of 50/50. Even new cars come with colored faces.

Do you guys think it looks dated on our turbo's? BTW, Your gauges tie in very nice with the interior.

If you think about it the tuners of the 80's were way ahead of their time when it comes to colored gauges. Look at some of todays supercars that have them.

I do like black also

It's kinda like the color of our wheels...80'ish, my Fuchs are white, the color of the car. 50% of the time I love them, and the rest of the time I wish they didn't match the car color.
