I recently sold my Bertone (Fiat) X1/9 and am looking at buying a Solstice in the spring of 2006 or later, perhaps a 2006 or even a 2007 model considering that I want more power.

I love the car's look and its philosophy and fuilly expect it to replace all the handling and "topless" fun of my X1/9..at least I hope so.

BUT...I have one concern. There does not seem to be an option to add other gauges (other than the standard speedo/tach/fuel/ etc). My question: is there an option to add water temp/oil pressure/voltage gauges (ot others) that your typical Sports car usually has?

The Driver Information Center (DIC) has all the vitals except for fuel level.

There are plenty of aftermarket guages available.

My favorite are the Aeroforcetech guages that I am getting for my GTP. Check them out here: http://www.aeroforcetech.com/

They are basically an OBD2 scan tool that can monitor many different sensors on your vehicle, and they fit into a standard aftermarket guage size hole. If there isn't already an A-pillar gauge housing by the time I get my Sky, then I will make and sell them myself.

If the G6 has it, I guess the Solstice will too.

...what does this all mean, Basil?
