I just recently installed some gauges in my car. Are you planning on installing them yourself? I would reccomend doing it yourself its reallly not all that bad. I did all 6 gauges in 6 hours. Anyway back to your orginal question. I read that the gauges should outlive the life of the car.

I am going to do it my self , as far as expected life I have seen them in Honda's and some were burn't out , but who knows , they might have screwed up the wiring. I only payed $38 for them on Ebay , There is still one more set listed for an SL , two for the VR-4 , they look real good , light and dark blue , white and red colours ON white face gauges . O ya can they be dimmed ? with the factory dimmer ?

They should come with a seperate dimmer. The facotory dimmer will only control the needle and odometer brightness not the brightness of the gauges. You probaly bought the same set as me.

Are the actual gauges two pieces (the indiglo film and the gauge itself) or just one?

I didn't get the three centers with the kit , maybe thats why it was only $38, I don't really care about them , just looking forward that counts . I don't think it will look to bad being that both heater controls and the center gauges will all be orange . Personaly I find the Pontiac orange staring me in the face , ugly and borring , do you like the look of yours? , I don't have mine installed yet.

Hey, that's good then man! The 3 center gauges will just stress you out. i think having indiglo's in the main cluster looks great already!

For $38, you can't beat that price. I got mine off of ebay when they first came out for 100 bux :mad:

I just feel incomplete b/c I do have the center 3 indiglo's but they're not installed. no one around here will do it for less than a 100 bux to install.

dont forget to show us pics when you have them installed! :)
