    "cheap" Chinese Gauges

    Yeah or if you get a 2 way adaptor you can have the oil pressure switch/light and the gauge

    Looks like you get the sender as well (large round brass thing in pic), It's electronic sender not mechanical so you only need a wire rather than a capillary tube with the oil in. I assume thread sizes are standard

    I haven't bought them yet but probably going to give the ones from china a go, £150 for all is wortg a go and they say they will match my sender units ohm range

    Radiator Hose For Vw Polo Seems Hard To Find?!

    You would think there would be loads!! I've had some luck with online scrappys, a few sites will do the leg work for you and check around country.

    Just done a quick google as well and there are some skoda fabia 1.4 tdi hoses on ebay (used) cant get link to work but i searched for skoda fabia 1.4tdi cooling and theres a set in Latvia there seems to be 2 1.4tdi engines a 51kw/70HP or 59kw/80HP, the 80HP one also fits the 1.9tdi (according to google!!)

    Thanks Moog only thing that worrys me about 2nd hand gauges is maybe having to match sensors to the gauges but do you have pics? Nelmo I think the gps sensor is included and fits on scuttle top nr windscreen. I'm going to give the USA ones a miss

    Thanks nelmo, I'm probably gonna risk it and as you say they are getting better and its not to much to loose if it all goes t*ts up. And alot of stuff is probably made in China or at least the components are. And I think I can get the temp gauge made to match the sender already in the tank

    I know I'm probably going to get some flak but wondering if anyone has had experience with the gauges you see on ebay? I'm looking to remodel my dash over the winter but don't think I can persuade the wife £400-£500 is an acceptable amount so ive been looking at some chinese ones or the "dolphin/shark" ones from USA. Nice comments only please This is ebay link (I think) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6-Gauge-set-with-senders-Speedometer-Tacho-Fuel-Temperature-Volt-Oil-pressure-/223016484636 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DOLPHIN-6-METRIC-MECHANICAL-STREET-ROD-GAUGE-SET-STREET-ROD-HOT-ROD-UNIVERSAL-/312107618700

    Just a thought Alan if you need to see another MEMS result I can take mine out for a spin and send the log file for another set of comparison figures
