If actual copyrights and/or patents are being violated, I'm 100% against it. So far, I am reading conjecture and suppositions fortified with opinions.

911 gauges in a VW

I have seen 914 and 911 gauges used in a variety of Type 1 vehicles. Do 914 gauges need special senders or anything else to make them work? Same question, but for 911 gauges as well.
