You do not need this.
It's just a gadget for car, nothing else

A Boost gauge can be fun to watch but a turbo timer is an obsolete item. Any car with an after run coolant pump (like ours) has no need for a turbo timer.

That this is necessary then it would be standard equipment for all cars, or as an option

If you like diodes and the numbers exists a digital version

No, a turbo timer keeps the engine running for a pre-set amount of time. (aftermarket) Our cars do not do that. We have an after run coolant pump that runs an amount of time depending on heat.(factory)

I know people with stock cars that have boost gauges and people with Stg3 large turbo setups that do not. It's all personal preference.

I had boost gauges in my A4/S4/Golf, and Turbo Timers in my S4/Golf.

A4:
