I have analog guages, not all guages are digital, so if I get more they will all look kinda the same. If you wire the guages right they will dim with your dash llights.

Any light can dim, A light dimming is it just having less power getting to it...for instance a light is fully bright at 12v, take it down to 6v and it dims half way...get it?...if you wire it into your auto shifter lights it'll dim(if your auto)...or just find with wires are on the out side of the dimmer switch in the dash trim...

I wired my footwell LED's into a switch then ran through the switch into the shifter light...so i can dim the footwell led's with my speedo backlight and such, as well as turn them off...

negative ( - ) is black
positive ( + ) is white

Alrights thanks for the info man. Helps a lot. I just wasn't too sure about it. I guess it'll just be to personal preference cause this is the only gauge ima put in my car. Also like to here other opinions on what type voltmeter you guys would install also.
