I was driving in my bosses car today and noticed he didn't have a tach, it's a '98 I belive, base model no options but shouldn't you still have a tach, I find it difficult to see how you can shift without one?

Just by the sound of the Revs. If you've raced alot you can tell when you need to shift up to the next gear.

Ya that is pretty goofy, i was looking in a manual sometime with the options and saw that some didnt have tachs, but i got a factory one that is just fine, but how much does one of those APEXi tachs cost?

I have a 2001 elantra it has a tach in it. One I drive down the road and I dont look at the tach or the speedo and can have a semi right next to me and my stereo pumping, and I can shift with precission just by the minute differences in vibration. What I would like to see even if it meant taking the tach out is a oil press gauge, amp gauge. I was used to driving a 93 grand prix that had a full instrument panel, i was disapointed to find that you cant even get that as an option, with the most being a gas gauge, and water temp. I know there good cars but Im a pilot too and it makes me uneasy to find that I dont even know if the engine is holding oil press (i dont like dummy lights to let me know when its too late) and I would like to know if the alt is over or under charging especially when I get my stereo system in there. (again not a dummy light.
