Temp Gauge for 2010 3?

Figured you guys could help me out on this one...
My mom has a new Mazda 3, 5 door. It doesn't have a temp gauge in the cluster and it bugs her because she's always had one in her previous cars. What kinda oil temp gauges r inexpensive, but acurate and kinda cool? She wants one that she can mount but wont be too big and in the way. And if anyone has pics of theirs or other ones that would help.

I would imagine coolant temp. Wow I didn't know that they did not have a temp gauge in Mazda's. that would bother the shit out of me not having one.

yeah my mazda doesn't have it either. they didn't put it in cause it's got gigantic speedometers and tachometers! also when you get the gauge try to get the size that'll fit inside the vent pod on the left of the steering wheel. it'll look more stock than a gauge pod on the pillar. also they have a mount that'll still allows the functionality of that vent.

That's one of the reason i didn't like the new 3 also.
Also not a fan of the digital fuel gauge.

She said "engine temp"... So I'm guessing coolant.
