I’m jealous of those triple gauges!
They may come up for sale yet
When i installed them i bought a brand new OEM module to gauge(s) harness to avoid any possibility of degradation in the original wire insulation and causing issues further down the track.

What are G8Only like to deal with?

I have emailed them twice enquiring about shipping to NZ for their fuel pump access cover and have not had a reply.

No, i haven't as yet, it is hard to get the timezones sorted.
Thats why i have emailed them and also used the "Contact us" on their website to allow them to reply when it is a suitable time.

Not as yet.
I have emailed them directly yesterday rather than using their contact us portal.

I emailed Rob at Wretched Motorsports and enquired if they still sell them and got a reply within 2hrs of, no they have been discontinued.
