If so where? I'm considering it, but not sure where to place it.

I think it needs to go on the windscreen pillar, that has to look better than a dash mount (in my opinion) :wink:

Still looking for a good A-pillar mount. The installation process is here (http://photo.platonoff.com/Auto/20040417.Saab_9-5_boost_gauge_install/) if anyone needs a howto.

or of course you could get one from PFS :wink:

Gauges & Pods (http://www.partsforsaabs.com/default.php?cPath=28_225)

Think I will try and get a second hand 'A' pillar interior trim bit and fit one of those 'A' pillar pods and get it all covered in matching original material.
