Gauges: Sweet Baby Jesus Help Me Decide

I must have read 25 threads on recommended gauges. So, have mercy upon me, and tell me if $ for $ this is what I should go with -- or if for a few more dollars I could go to another, far better level:

1. Pillar - Summit Racing - $80

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/atm-12214

2. Air Fuel - Cobalt - $300

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/atm-6178

3. Boost - Cobalt - $90

.
"Image is a representation of this item.

I dont think anyone has gotten the pillar pods correct for our cars yet. Seems like it would be so easy to make one the matches and looks good. But I guess not.

I'm using an ultragauge. I like it and its super cheap like $70 bucks shipped to your door. Reads the info from the OBD. Takes 5 minutes to setup.

I like the aeroforce interceptors. Even though I bought them used, their customer service has been top notch.
