Hi,

You can buy a pricol tach for approx Rs 750/- from Milan Subway.

My question :

What would one expect to pay for a shift light tacho and mount/installation ?

Also PJspeed (forum member) stocks R-active gauges, look pretty nice... anyone use them ?

Thanks.

Just make sure to mention that it is for your M800, (to make sure your tacho is for/ or has a setting for 3cyl.)

u can have an option of many....depends on how far u can stretch ur budget... i can give u the exact prices for a few....Pricol-rs.800, Auto Guage(3 3/4 incher)-rs.2150, Auto Guage(5 incher)- rs.5600, Auto Guage(5 incher 3 more needles) rs.6000. Auto meter-rs. 8000 up. they have 3/4/6 cyl settings too.. i got a auto guage one for my palio recently.
u can get all these at the opera house shops...there r plenty to search. the pricol would be a black one, whereas all the rest would be with a white background and in 7 colours and with a shift light. if any more querries, feel free to contact.
plus there are shops in bandra too offering these.

U can mount at any of the mentioned points.
I've done it at the centre ,but also took care that it doesn't block my windshield view.
Definitely need a good job to mount it correctly with screws.

Can the 2 way tapes withstand the weight of the 5" tacho?? I personally do not want to drill on the dashboard to fix the tacho.

I think the basic simple one which shud fit in ur 800 is the pricol one.

Its the cheapest available in the market..
