electric or mechanical

i been looking for a good set of gauges that arent extremely expensive. im really diggin the autometer c2 gauges. but some are electtric and some are mechanical. like the boost gauge is 200 bucks in the electric while the mechanical one is only 70. are the mechanical ones still really good gauges or whats the deal between the two?

Go with the edge insight. It monitors everything that your computer is able to read and it doesnt take too much space.

You can get the Insight CTS for 399.99 or the Insight CS for 299.99.
