    You will need to modify the centre console to make it fit in a Mk4.
    You basically have 2 choices:
    1. Move the heater controls down to the bottom & extend the upper DIN slot downwards to make a double DIN.
    2. Loose your centre air vents & extend the DIN slot upwards to make a double DIN.
    Either one will require a major refabrication of the centre console. Are you any good with fibreglass, fillers & painting?

    It has been done a few time before, along with screens for in car computers. If you do a bit of digging back through the Mk4 ICE forum you should be able to get a few ideas.
