    1999 VW Passat mount ideas?

    Hi,

    I have a 99 VW Passat 1.8T who's dash looks like the pic. I want to do a 7" touch screen but don't like the idea of ripping apart my dash... and don't really care too much about an OEM look. I need functionality for now and do need to be able to reverse everything for when I sell the car a couple of years down the road.



    I'm thinking above the AC vents? but i'd have to drill down into the dash ... or use some adhesive that will kill it :-( . I know other ppl on here have removed the HU and put it there after moving the AC controls down..but I need the HU for my audio amp.

    Any ideas for a non-destructive mount? I don't mind a tom tom style popping out of the dash thing.

    Thanks!

    well you could get a plip up screen, or you can go all the way, by relocating climate controls below, and screen on top
