Autogage 3 gauge pack- electric or mech?

As the title says, need to get some gauges and need some input. The mechanical set is only about $50-75 but the electrical set is way more. What due you guys use are there any benefits of one over the other? thanks

I went with the electric Gauges, it's a lot easier to route the two sender unit wires than it is to route oil and temperature lines, there is always a chance of a oil leak on your oil line which can make a mess if it is inside the vehicle.

Electric all the way.

Well said - can't think of a good reason to go mech. (aside from the obvious of being cheaper).

Electric.
Had a mechanical oil perss gauge line fail inside the car at a friends house in the middle of the night. Could'nt start car or go anywhere until I fixed it right there.
Not fun.
Oil smell inside the car took a long time to go away even after cleaning it up pretty well.
Learn from my mistake long ago.
