I would have to agree after driving to work today and imagining the gauge position that briansol's idea would work better. it makes more sense the have the furthest gauge close to the front of the pod. Then again I have an Rspec so I dont even have a center speaker.

But it will look wrong, it will be off center and crooked. I dont think there is enough over lap to block any of the dials

The pod angles are perfect, and staggered properly IMO, you have to remember where the pod is in relation to your seating position. In my car the site line is very natural for the setup. Nothing is blocked. Everything flows very well.

Both of the drawn images would look terrible as a production piece.
CPe knows what they are doing it, and they did it very well with their design.

Here is the same design but on a Speed3, as you can see the guages point perfectly at the drivers seat.

THat looks great. I love how its completely flat with the rest of the dash. If thats how the GC pods are going to look like, I'm sold.

They do? This is the downside to center cluster gauges. Pillar gauges look retarded but as far as instrument placement they are perfect. Those look kinda odd.

yes the point right a the driver, all you have to do is just glance slightly right and there are the gauges.

The ones on the speed3 look out of place. Like they're sticking out of nowhere. It would be nice to see a gauge pod that flows with the dash. Maybe something with a hood and the back end extends out more.

I like them like that, the typical ones you see in the wrx's with the hood and all look too bulky
