I am thinking about putting white face gauges in my 96 gt. Its a white car with black cloth interior. they sell the cluster insert on ebay for 15-30 bucks. I like the look but i don't want my car to look like a cheap ricer. how do you guys feel about white face gauges? also what about the white faces that "glow" blue at night?.....

I like white gauges, they add some contrast to the dark dash. I think they are classy in general, Although I dont know of the quality of the ebay ones your looknig at.

Back in the day they were totally cool. Nowadays my 3.3L minivan has them stock from the factory and Saleen actually switched to a BLACK face guages recently to be different. I think they are totally played out and they are really nothing special anymore.

i like the ones i got in my 97gt. they were in there when i got it. they are white face during the day, but look completely different at night. i will try and get a pic of them after it gets dark to show you.

They are alright I guess. I would change the lighting to red instead of green though. It gives it a softer and easier look to read at night.

now running stock gauges with the led inserts behind. i did like the contrast of the white faces - but did not like how misaligned they were (vinyl overlays) i also didnt like the idea of inaccurate needles (new gauge inserts) currently im actually considering switching back to the oem bulbs for that classic green glow again.

I agree, but I think the real question firechicken93, is what you like on your car, because at the end of the day it's a matter of personal preferance.

It makes absolutely ZERO difference what anyone else thinks about this look :no

If you like it, go ahead and install them :yes
