glow shift gauges?

Anyone run these gauges they offer on ebay? Seem like a good price just curious on the quality.

I seem to be the only one that ever says anything positive about them. So I will say I don't have them in my truck or anyothers at the moment. But I do have them in my mustang and they are just as accurate as the autometers I had in it and they look cool! Mine are the ones that go black when the car is off. I will say the quality is not the highest by far but the do look good and are accurate Just my opinion.

I looked at them a while back. But decided to go digital again. The one thing I did notice is that if you get them directly from glow shift its cheaper than ebay

I run the crap outta them and love them there cheaper than competitors alot cheaper, and ive never had problems with them, just stay away from there tinted gauges, you cant see them at night, or in some lights during the day.

I just installed a set of there gauges yesterday on a members truck. They look nice and work well but don't like how they wire up. The gauge lights have to be on all the time for the gauges to work. There is no seperate wire for illumination. There is just a constant 12v and switched 12v. Just my opinion.

I was wondering this same thing. I've been told they are junk. And I think there has got to be a reason they are like $200 cheaper than autometers. Do you get what you pay for with gauges?
