Interesting - this could widen the options for my replacement head unit. A couple of questions... Do the existing switches remain in the "old" bezel underneath the Raptor panel? What do the visible screws/bolts fix into?

The raptor panel fits over top of existing post 2002 td5 dash switches stay in existing holder indash the only thing the raptor panel does is allow to fit a double din

It screw directly to existing dash and you also have to cut lower part of existing dash to fit the d/din unit

Mine is a pioneer CarPlay unit and it's superb 2008 110 2.4 XS Utility (Hagrid)

Having looked through this .....I can see where the money is in the Raptor one but the Mud stuff looks like a waste of money and cheap - Surely anybody handy could make a better one from 3mm or 4mm or 5mm aluminium sheet the same as the Mud Stuff plate but better .....

Its gave me an idea .......... 2006 DEFENDER 90 TD5 CSW XS

This radio on Ebay is single din fitting and has a screen that comes out and drops down insted of up. This would be more suitable for a TD5 dash installation.

That would be simpler and easier to fit, but my concerns would be how good would it be and how long would it last being a no name brand.

Do you have enough clearance between the gear stick and the screen when changing gear?I'm currently weighing up a double din for mine with a raptor dash 2012 - current. ...2007 disco 3 hse. (Wife's car )
2014 - current ..... 2003 defender td5 90 (my car)
2009 - current .... 2005 zx10r
