And I'm currently looking at getting a dual gauge pillar pod to remove my frog eye pod. I've come to hate my frog eye pods.
Why do you hate the frog eye pods?? They're fine. You can see your gauges plenty clearly in the shot below:

Well recieved my dual pillar pod piece. Test fit just to get an idea of what it will look like.
Hoping to install it and have both gauges moved over soon. I'm going to love the pillar pods.

I had that pod in one of my old Neons. It made for a bit of a blind spot, but it wasn't terrible. It didn't take long to acclimate to it. I actually like the look of the frog pod better, but I can see how it would block the other gauges a bit. That could get annoying, having to tilt your head to read behind them.
