I like the first set myself. I have a friend who has a set like the second one in his Sunfire and it looks good, but I just don't think it would look good in a Taurus. I have a set like the first one. My switch looks different than what they're showing on that one though cause they came from a different seller. That switch looks bulky so I would do the digital inverter upgrade. I don't find the amount of light it puts out a problem, but it is really bright. If you get the bezel, be sure to post a pic cause I was thinking about getting one too.
Wow, that turned out to be a long post for such a simple question.
I would get the second, well I actually I already did and love it. The first one looks plain during the day, being just black and white. Also, get the digital inverter, its easier to install and I wish I got it because it has more colors it can display. Don't buy the guage overlay, when you install the guages go to autozone or another autoparts store and buy a can of chrome spray paint and spray your gauge overlay chrome, the can is only like $5. Someone did that, I forget who.
I ordered the 2nd set. I really like the look of the first, but I agree with fanofelliottmjb and crackhead that they might be fatiguing on the eyes.
I also ordered the digital inverter. I will post pics after I get my SHO gauges and install the whole thing.
