    Im not sure if the 2004 has a double din radio or single, my 2000 has a single din so i recommend a pop out screen to go on top of the single din radio and place the pc somewhere under the dash or glovebox, maybe under the seat? If it has the double din radio then either hack the dash or do a custom flip down where the sunroof goes but visibility would be neck breaking. i imagine you could build some type of mount to just mount a screen to the dash or tom-tom like to the windshield but then wires would most likely be visible. sacrafice your cd player and place it into your glovebox because you wont need it except to amplify sounds. if you did this you would set it to the loudest you like and then control the volume by the pc via touch screen or a knob and you would not have to look at the head unit again? take the options or leave them just dont be a jerk

    ive got a 03 Bora (jetta 4 to yous in the us) and it has the double din. although some models have a storage tray in one of the spaces.
    if youve got this storage space why not rip it out and put in a motorised one.

    i did look at that option but would prices over here are double what they are for free standing ones (can fab it in place) so im doing the same as most others relocating the HU (dunno if its going in the glovebox or under the drivers seat) and my current guage setup down to where the ashtray is but will have to leave room for access to the diag. port.

    other option if you dont have the storage tray and have the cd changer in its place you could move the changer to the glovebox and fit a motorised lcd in its place.

    You could mount this lcd in your visor. I currently have my lilli imbedded in my visor. The only issue is a getting the wires thru. For my set up i actually hacked into the vga/usb serial wire that comes with the lilli and extended it, so the bulky part of the extension is in the headliner. My set up is not totally the way i like it yet - but I'm waiting to go thru one winter before I spend any more $$$ or put any more time into this project.
