        the 7inch panel takes up a double din space, then also button space if your keeping them. You would fit a 7" LCD in the black dash area but thats it.

            I used to have a VL and was planning an install for it back before 7" screens were affordable over here. So I have a soft spot for VL's, especially calais turbos

            I suggest taking some measurements of the actual screens you want to use (im sure measurements can be found on ebay/manufacturers sites/this forum) and then measuring the dash. Much easier to plan when you're not just guessing.
