Boost gauge install help

I need to know where other 1 series owners have installed their boost gauges... (I know how to install the wireing and hose).

I wanted to install it in the ashtray compartment but, I cannot figure out how to remove it without destroying my aluminum trim....


Thanks for any help...

I suggest using a digital meter to have it look a lot more slick.

this looks nice

I like this setup!

Although i had a boost gauge in my last car in about that location (ashtray of a B5 S4) - totally useless. Could not read it while driving in boost, way too dangerous to look that far away from road. I moved it to inside my cluster and it was much better.
