Default Does this exist?

Do they have car monitoring stuff that I can mount in an empty gap in the dash where my car's cd player used to be?

Right now it is just an empty hole in my dash. I want to put a voltmeter there and maybe some other gauges.

Also, is there a way to upgrade my speedometer? It pegs at 120, and I don't like having it stop there anyways...

THANK YOU!

I didn't know what those were called! din-slot?

I need a ammeter, voltmeter, and maybe a fuel-air type thing if that is practical on my commuter car.

Also, is it tough to put white faced gauges on my car?

The din slot is where the radio fits lol, I have 2

gauges can be any colour you want, The Autogauges jap spec are probably the best.
there are also white faced ones that have 7 colour backlights so you can choose what ever colour you want

Oh lol, it depends on the model of your car.

the higher spec model of my car comes with a white faced binnacle and is an easy swap
