Anybody happen to have these handy? Trying to figure out the size of a st162 drivers A-pillar cover. Looking at some gauge pods and don't wanna spend $50 on the direct fit. I'd rather spend $15 on a universal and fit it.

The $15 one I bought fits great on the 5th gen. No cutting needed.

Got mine at Autozone. Just FYI, some people have issues with the triple gauge pod getting in the way when they turn the steering wheel. Saying their knuckles hit it. I shuffle steer so it wouldn't matter to me. I have the 2 pod pillar though.

Yea that's no joke, I've done it a couple times usually when backing up though

Quite interesting actually.

Been doing some visual planning, think two in the pillar two in the radio will work nicely too.

To be honest, I haven't busted my knuckles on it in months.

Not to say that I won't bust them tonite, but it has been a while.
