Has anyone replaced the 6.5 inch screen with the 8 inch screen in their Taos yet? Or from the 8 inch without Nav to the 8 inch with Nav? Or added aftermarket infotainment?

The infotainment screens are apparently the same in many models such as the post-2018 Tiguans or Jettas so is it just remove and unplug then plug in the new ones? Does the Nav one need something specific to use?

This may be a bit premature until warranties start to expire but worth an ask.

It really sounds like a potential can of worms to me. Buy one with stuff you're happy with.
I agree with Slime(!), at the very minimum there would be some intense VCDS action to get it to work. Not Carista.
That's the kind of thing dealers will avoid like the plague too.

That's always preferable but unfortunately it's not always an option for everyone, even if money isn't a concern, as there may only be a limited availability of trims in an area or an urgent need doesn't give time to search for a particular trim. Some people may have to take what they can get then later consider upgrading bits and pieces.

Yep, that's fair. Definitely for things like wheels that are easy to upgrade. I just look at a built-in screen and would never think of trying to change it out. Everything is horribly tied together these days via CAN busses etc. and computerized, so what may seem like a simple upgrade is likely to be a nightmare.
If it's any consolation the screen in the GTI is tiny. :D

I don't see it happening with an alarming amount of vehicle settings accessed from the radio now.

There are lots of cars with aftermarket radios that can access all of the functions from the factory radio. Several companies make radios for a wide range of vehicles. I had an upgraded 10" in a Kia Optima that did everything the factory did and more.
