how bout placing the lilliput 7" where the radio currently is, and running the stereo under it?
lol sorry don't understand - where is the radio? :$
edit: thinking more it would be more sensible and easier for me to just to get a in-dash monitor. Put it in the free dash space , however I am finding it hard locating websites selling these , and I have tried searching
update in-dash touchscreen monitors ( motorized ) seem to cost a bomb
. If I was to just get a non touchscreen monitor how would I be able to control the computer

BTW that's what i am doing with my pioneer headunit. The HU is now in the glove.
VW golf and Jetta dash look the same. For your oem headunit you can buy a blitzsafe adapter to put in the audio. If not then you can just wire it in directly. If you don't know how to do that then maybe you need to read up a little more. Screen can fit in that 2 din space but it involves taking out the side strips and molding the screen in completely. You can do an indash screen as I have done but that's entirely up to you.
Actually it looks like you have an aftermarket HU so just find a line input for that. And you also seem to have the base model GL golf without heated seats so that's a 2000/1 golf? buy an indash housing and convert a lilliput/xenarc into the housing. You can try to relocate the HU to the glovebox but I'll tell you right now it won't fit.
old picture but you get the idea
Mine needs to be updated.
I wouldn't have the skill or equipment to buy the housing and do the convertion. I wouldn't mind buying a in-dash touchscreen with the convertion done but in UK pounds it would be about £250 + Shipping which is quite alot :S . And I haven't seen anything cheaper
You could look at a dashmount from www.dashmount.co.uk to mount it somewhere else - but not motorised, then upgrade to motorised later when you have the skill/moneyOriginally Posted by Lucky
But just to say you are better off starting with a VGA touchscreen else you'll waste more time and money messing around with stuff you don't actually want.
