In my case I needed a place to mount the gauge to use the analog output into HPTuners for logging the fueling. If I could have found a pillar pod to match the T3 fake carbon fiber wrap on them I would have done the pillar mount. I don't look down at WOT, just use it for logging. I understand what you are saying 100%.

Well, since you asked, here goes. I don't like it. That looks like something that was purchased from a local parts store like Autozone and screwed on in thirty minutes.

I would have bought a side pillar gauge mount that would have looked somewhat factory. You can't take such a nice car like yours and install parts that look like they were installed on your lunch break. Your car deserves much better.

Call my post constructive criticism.
