          currently i am rebuilding my 2006 jetta




          i did not start my 88 project yet, yes you can make it OEM, like your friend did. am not sure sure where he placed it, but if it's below where the old tape deck is you can easily get into accident by taking your eyes of the road, the alternative way would be shifting climate controls below.

          The reason i will be using a flip up monitor is it's going to b directly on the level of my eyes, and there would be almost no glare

            i would consider dual screen, now that would be cool,you can have navigation on top monitor, and playlist on the bottom

            just think everything though, especially audio wiring, let me be example for you i am remodeling my car 4th time already, mainly because of little thing bugging me

                yeah i did this is a stock console


                honestly if you just starting i would suggest flip since it's easy, but if you already got standard screen, the lower console is a piece of cake to work with, since it's easy removable. patience is the key

                i want to see how your jetta comes out, since i am going to be doing an install in mine after i will rebuild an engine

                  BTW, if you get a stereo with AUXiliary audio feed option you can get away without buying an amplifier to run audio from pc. that would be a quiet a shortcut

                              If you're going to do this much work, resale value is not an issue since you will probably keep the car as long as you can. Otherwise just buy extra dash pieces to put it back to stock if you sell it.

                              Also, not to bash your project, but I'm curious why you put hatchback emblems on the 4 door? GLI would be the better emblem to put on it. Unless you plan on chopping the trunk off.

                              I personally would put the screen higher up like Yev said, where the cd player is now, and relocate that stuff to where you put your friend's screen down lower. But that's just what I'd do.
