Not hard at all. I would suggest doing the euro cup holder at the same time you do any stereo stuff so you don't have to pull everything apart multiple times to get to the same area.
Thanks! Yeah, I remember. Still have your R or did you move on?Whoa.. Welcome back Mike! Not sure if you remember me, but you helped me with the volant intake on my mk6. But very glad you still have the R! Looks amazing

No need, the Alpine is great because it also sounds vastly better than any factory radio would. I've got a 9 band parametric EQ and time alignment for the speakers. The Dynaudio setup never sounded as good as it does now after some time tuning it.Looks nice! If you wanted a flush fitting screen, you could look into is the screen from a latest Discover Pro and adapt it maybe (2018 e-golf SEL with digital cockpit comes with it)? It's just a thin screen, the head unit itself is in the glovebox. dunno how it would interface with your head unit, if at all...
Car is looking mint!
this looks fantastic. question: can this work with a OEM RVC? I installed one a while ago, and in wanting update my head unit, I've been stuck by the fact not much seems to want to work with it. The MIB2 even requires a special adaptor or updating the camera.I was determined to have android auto and ditch the horrid RNS315, so the Alpine Halo9 seemed like the best choice.

The Halo9 has an RCA RVC camera input meant for aftermarket RVCs and since I don't have a RVC I never looked into what it would take to get an OEM one to work. Odds are you'll need some sort of adapter. I've been contemplating one of the aftermarket RCA cable based flip up VW emblems that are like the factory ones. I'm just a bit apprehensive of their quality and the amount of work it would take to install and if I really "need" it since I never had a RVC in a car before and never felt I really needed one. It's one of those "it would be nice" features that I keep weighing the cost plus my time to install versus actual necessity.
Yeah, an adapter that converts from factory cameras RGB output to RCA is what would be needed. There are a ton of them on aliexpress and ebay for cheaper than eurozone has them for and they're all the same made in China part. Just search for VW RGB to RCA and you'll find them for $20-$30.interesting. I wonder if this adaptor, which is what you need for the MIB2, would do the same thing?
