Check out the rixster vent gauge. I think the new one has coolant temp read out from the canbus. If it does this is the cleanest install IMO

EAS makes a coupling that goes in the middle of the rubber hose where you can tap into.
That's how mine is connected.

Give them a call.

Amm boost gauge type is mechanical and install was pretty easy But very bad place for boost gauge... It must be somewhere on top...

p.s my boost gauge is from ebay ~30$ and light color match OEM color, so it is great!

iphone pictures.. but you can see color

- or you find a OBD compatible gauge
- or you hook up your own gauge, and install a sensor somehow

I have the Dashdyno OBD reader in my (cut up) ashtray. As for boost readings (and i do get boost on a 320d) I find it not very informative. It takes 5 minutes to establish a corrolation between right foot and reading. Coolant temperature, engine load, and in my diesel case EGR mode and DPF inlet temp (regeneration) are of much more value in my view
