Seatbelt Box Digital Gauges

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have 10 sets of Digital oil pressure and temp gauges that are set into the seatbelt warning boxes found on late model 2002's, e12, e21, early e30, etc. Measurements are in Bar for pressure and Centegrade for temp. The 'brain box' can be mounted pretty much anywhere under the dash(the length of the wires from the brain are approx 30"), with easy to use quick releases. All wires are tagged for easy install. The kit includes the following:

One modified seatbelt warning box

One Brain box

Brown wire to Oil Pressure sender

Gray wire to Oil Temp sender

You will need to purchase your own senders. The kit does not include them. In my car i am using the e30 m3 temp sender and a VDO oil press sender 360-023.

The price is $225.00 for the kit, with $10.00 from each sale going to the FAQ. Shipping will be actual rate, and will be sent USPS.

There is a core charge of $25.00 for the seatbelt box.

I have 10 sets, and will be bringing them to the 02 Swap and Show this Saturday.

The last picture shows the old style display foil, which looks slightly gray. This was the prototype. The new style is black, and is much easier to read. The best part about these gauges is the placement; always easy to see with a quick glance!

I can also provide digital gauges for e30, 24,28,23, that mount into the instrument cluster.

Thanks for looking,

Bob Newman

Clay, Marshall, and Frank, thanks for the positive comments!


   Frank, the gauges would be compatable with an ambient temp sensor. Probably something like an 80's ambient temp sensor found in cars with an OBC.


  Marshall, water temp could be substituted in place of oil temp. Boxes could be custom/special ordered, but it will take a little time. All gauges are made in Germany.


 Here's a pic of the set we made for my e36.


 Thanks again,
