Default Best dual egt/boost gauge setup

I really don't like any of the options for the MK5 gauge pod placement, so I am looking a dual egt/boost gauge so I will only have 1 gauge and not 2 separate gauges. Any reasonable options out there?

I've been really happy with my McNally gauges. http://mcnallyelectronics.com/boost_psi_egt.htm

They have great customer service. After having my gauges for 5 years a few segments are missing. I'm going to send them in and they are going to repair the segments and update the gauges to their current version "software".

Third picture is my actual car...

I prefer analog gauges as you can see them with your peripheral vision as your eyes are tuned for detecting movement.

Polar FIS + enabled viewing vehicle parameters in the FIS screen, but Polar FIS Advanced, as well as incorporating more parameters, includes new features like the ability to modify the number of flashes of intermittent comfort indicators, function automatic lowering of the mirror on the passenger side when engaging reverse and some functions which are can only be activated with Diagnostic cable such as VCDS.

I bought this one, for my MkIV:

But I found the LEDs too bright, and not adjustable. It was hard to see the rest of the instrument panel at night.

Bambaataa, I really like that setup and saw that in another picture. Where did you get that pod?

The pod is what came in from Germany. The gauges are Autometer Cobalt series gauges (boost + EGT).
Installation was pretty straightforward. Had to carefully (I have pillar airbags)pull the A-pillar cover to route the wires through.
