question is do you need it?
i had it in my GP for the A/F scan gauge and boost gauge, i mean it looks nice and all but damn it takes away quite a bit of the view, but gotta admit eventually you will get used to it and you wont even notice its there..
but us with the 00+ bonnies have a nice spot for the gauges which is the heat vents

It doesn't affect the viewing as much as you would think. The 2k+ has such a big windshield anyway, a few gauges don't hurt

Looks like it'* coming along good. I wouldn't be able to have anything in my "viewing area", god I'm a horrible driver. That'* why I want a big car, so I won't get hurt when I hit something.

My only real problem is the blocked view when going threw roundabouts. I just lean forward a bit and problem solved. However, I have to do that a LOT!!!
