    When your on full boost, the only way you will be looking is ahead,
    I have seen them fitted in the air vent on the right hand side, but you could make up a plate and fit it in the 2nd Din slot between the Roof/window buttons, or buy a new panel without the switches then move the buttons.
    The best place i have seen 1 is in a made up POd ontop of the Centre Console, Checked out SIXTH BLUE 888.in projects

    Mine is mounted in the pull down flap.

    Only really to look at it if you have a problem and its out of prying eyes in there too.

    Hi all. iv literally just done all this. what i did was relocate the switches to just left of the steering column,(nightmare), then i went to autodials.co.uk and bought boost, oil pressure and volt dials (3 for £80) then a din mount with 3 pre-cut holes (£10), be aware that it needs a bit of trimming to fit properly, and if fitting oil temp or press, you may need and the extra fittings, also available at autodials... will try and get some pics....looks good.
