Just call me "Ricer"

I fell into the dark side and ordered a set of those reverse glow guage faces off of EvilBay. I had been lusting for a set of white faces for so long now I could not resist the $25 for these. I had no intention of using the night glow (riceboy) function but I hooked it up anyway. Before I pulled the fuse out to disable it, I turned off the lights in the garage and kicked them on to see what they looked like. I'll be darned if they didn't look fairly nice. I was able to change the color and dim them so they just blended in nicely. Here are the photos.

I was looking for the non lit up ones, but never saw them for my configuration (no fuel mileage indicator). Oh well, I am happy.

The reverse models look great IMO. You can actually read your gauges at night now. But with this darn 951, nobody has made nice gauges for it. Someday.

Great colour gauges, they look like the VW gauges, very cool. I wish they made them in km/h for my car.
Even if someone things its "rice", who cares, be true to your self and come out of the closet....I did, I like Porches and I like Alfas and Fiats...

No hes not.
Ricer would be big ass rims, and graphix and everything in the interior painted. White faces dont say anything for rice. White faces are on tons of new cars now including vans, does that mean they are all rice? nope

Well that depends on your def. of rice. I was making a joke w/my comment.

However, I see the gauges fine and I'm not for most cosmetic only improvements, specially when they cost a lot. To add to that, I'm usually against things that are worse in some aspects. Those look to be too bright for their intended function at night.

I wouldn't do it, that's just me.

They actually have a dimmer. I turned it up for the photo. I turn it down for real world driving.

Ahmet, I've seen these gauges in a few cars. they are pretty nice. you can dim them and sometimes change the color to suit your mood.. if you're into that.. they do seem nice to me if I had the time and $ I'd do it, but only if they had an exact replacement for a 944 model specific. The interior lights in my car are working but you can't see Jack they are so dim... so,. throw that onto the list.

So I went looking for some of these again... there's a model for an N/A with the mpg meter under the tach. So I was thinking in theory that this could be put on my 951, and the boost meter would just fill the mpg hole and still work just fine (although watching my "MPG" meter jump up every time I pinned it would be humorous). Would this really work?

I'd really like to be able to know how fast I'm going past sunset.
