What gauges would you add to a MultiJet?

It's a difficult one I know but if you had space for just two additional gauges which two would you go for?

I was thinking that a Turbo gauge and Oil Pressure gauge would be good.

I'd be happy with just a Turbo gauge!

Ammeter for sure, low current from a battery causes all sorts of alarms to be thrown up including the dreaded Power steering one!

Probably Oil temperature too... definite turbo saver if the lube system has problems!

Looks like we might need three then after all.

Where would you mount them? Either side of the dash behind the steering wheel or on the centre console above the stereo?

Or on the right windscreen pillar as it already blocks almost everything from being seen

Trouble with the right pillar is the curtain airbags. Would be harsh to have a set of gauges wrapled around your head instead of a soft fluffy pillow!

But you don't have a MultiJet! You have a MultiAir.

Yer I know. Got told off at the dealers calling it a T-Jet. So I use MultiAirJet to confuse them.

Ok so I have 135 turbo petrol.

This is what disapointted me.

Do the sporting have the digital turbo gauge??

Im thinking of finding a crashed A500 and getting boost gauge out of that or just the holder and fitting a oil temp gauge then fitting boost gauge (that shows bar) somewere else

Nope, for some reason Fiat left it off the UK models although the euro models have it.
