    An easier route is to get the sat nav console and mount a 5" screen in it. That way it just looks like you have factory fitted sat nav to car thieves.

    Here is my one

    These are custom made...so not just plug and play.

    That would be correct. However, the problem with this is they don't look standard and look very tempting to thieves.

    Just under 14 quid mate.

    The part numbers are:
    matt silver - 13117931 - £13.10
    black - 9229371 - £45.47
    gun metal 9196588 - £98.11

    I've got a dvd player sitting in the glove box. It could have fit into the bottom DIN slot, but I like my mStation there. It runs into the head unit via the AUX input along with my mStation using RCA splitter cables. However, I'm looking at getting a Alpine DVD head unit (without the screen, so it doesn't look like I've got DVD, problem is the one I'm looking at is £350 so it may have to wait a few months.

    I've got a Neo mStation there. It's an MP3 player that sits in the boot, and that is the remote for it. I changed the standard 10gig hard drive in it for a 250gig one, so I shouldn't run out of space for my music There was a guy on eBay last year who had loads of them and was selling about 3 on eBay at any one time. All brand new, but they wern't going for much. Mine was just under £60 including postage, but they go for alot more now.

    For the DVD, you either need a DVD head unit or a DVD player that runs into the head unit via AUX input.

    I got my DVD player from www.caraudiocentre.co.uk and found their customer service was great.

    When you buy the console from vxl, it will be the top bit down to just above the ash try. To fit the screen, I removed the screen mounts on the top, stuck them back on upside down, ripped the screen apart, used double sided tape and a hot glue gun to hold the screen in place, extened the power cables from the screen to the circuit andd mounted the circuit board onto the back of the screen mounts using hot glue. I kept the rear of the sreen case as that is protecting the circuit board. It took a fair few hours to sort out, but it worked out really well.

    You also need either a DVD head unit or a DVD player that mounts into the second DIN slot, glovebox or boot, and run it into the head unit via AUX input cables.

    It would, but you would need to make the hole at the top bigger. It's going to be much easier to fit a 5" monitor. However, finding one takes a fair while on eBay, but Maplins sell a 5" TV for £79.99 that can be used. I payed £52 for two 5" monitors on eBay. I may have one for sale depending on if someone who had first dibs still wants it.

    I thought about getting a 5.6" or 5.8" screen as there is loads on eBay, but decided against it as it's going to be alot of hallse to widen the top hole because of how the sides arch around.
