I rolled out the good summer mats which frankly makes me feel more welcome in the car and if you read my other thread, I just passed 167k miles. This is probably the 7th time I've taken this exact picture and I'll probably take this photo every thousand miles for the rest of eternity because I just love all the zeros and I need a decent background.



I never got a decent photo with my new 160 gauges so here goes:


(More aperture = more goodness)


Now heres a picture I've been thinking about for a while. It incorporates most of the things I've changed in my car. You get the new gauges, the navi console, door sills, the fresh leather, the clean mats and a little more wood from the master switch panel(more burlwood is always welcome).


But this photo just didn't turn out as well as I'd liked so...

I evened out the photo with an HDR composite. I could have waited for softer light, yes, I could have even moved my car so the light would have shined on the shot more evenly, but this was much easier and HDR is all the rage these days:


Not even really a photo shoot but I was carrying out my camera to bring back to school and I figured why not, things look pretty good with the clean mats rolled out again. Hope you enjoyed.

Swapping the gauges was a plug and play install. If you keep the guts of your cluster, you don't have to worry about odometer readings, calibration or getting a matching cluster (coupe vs sedan/manual vs automatic). Take the cluster out, pull it apart, each gauge has three screws in back. Hour of work tops. If you want, I can link you some DIYs that I used.
