I would go with the a-pillar one. It would be annoying to have to look up at the mirror all the time to view the gauges. Also its probably easier to wire the a-pillar model.

Its no harder to wire above the mirror. But I agree it would suck to look up there
Go with the A pillar

I have the over the mirror. I love it. I can still glance up and see it just as easy and there is no worry about thieves see all those nice guages just staring at them. We have that problem around here.

Why not just order the 3 pod since you are just covering the 4th pod up

He's prolly saving the 4th spot for a DP Tuner switch gauge.......that'd be my guess as I plan on doing the same.
