Vendors&Members, need names of aftermarket guages for e9x's without oi/coolant temp

I haven't found a thread about this.
For cars with no oil/collant temp, water pump, etc gauges. I'd like to know what are my options that I can plug onto my OBD2 port and have it held somewhere in my driving view. Cheap to affordable to expensive, name them all.

I mostly see them on your guy's car but good pointing them out, I know it can do coolant temp too.

For P3 V2 vents, I asked P3cars.com
Is it only analog available still and only reads Boost/Vac, Batt Voltage, and Analog input?
I want to be able to see my coolant temp/oil temp.
Response
BMW did not put the canbus pins on the obd2 port until 2008... for this reason, on 2007 cars, the gauge can't communicate with the ECU, it can only gather data from its own sensors.

So another option.

I went EAS 3 gauge pod that replaces the ashtray and 3 Stack gauges; boost, oil pressure and water temp. Could easily put in oil temp instead of pressure.

I had the V2 on my 12/06 build date and it was showing everything except EGT temps.

What did your port look like? Do you still have the V2 so I can see the connector?
Mine looks like this.

All OBD connectors look the same except the plastic cover which I had to remove.

What are the pins P3 is talking about? I couldn't see them straight on after removing the cover.
