No boost gauge option, but I like the red anyway.

It lights up as advertised but i think it would ruin the dash. Red gauges are rare, and i love them. Some guy on cardomain has em'

I've heard bad things about those, so be warned. Also that particular set will only fit a base SE with minimal options.

The question that came up here before was that since you apparently are supposed to remove the red backlighting bulbs when installing that thing, how were the gauge needle pointers supposed to light up? They normally illuminate by picking up light from the main backlighting bulbs through clear plastic light runners behind the gauges.
