Yes - just a little under $2K USD for everything. Ordered from apg.org.pl (Poland) - who (as most Europeans do), have pretty decent English. (Certainly a lot better than my Polish. ).

Anyway, what I got was what they call the MIB2 High 8'' FL kit: 8" flat-screen, hi-res display; MIB2 head unit; new piano black trim piece to go around the display and vents (actually, I got new vents, too).
You can get it with SIM card slot, Sirius, and/or both of those option.

Installation was by far the easiest of any install I've done in previous Mk4 or Mk5 cars (as one would expect, I guess with OEM parts).
Also required to make use of the CarPlay or Android Auto is a USB / Aux-in port to replace the MDI port in the cubby ahead of the gear selector. They'll sell that, but I'd already purchased that from Aliexpress for like $50 or so (previous attempt at replacing the atrocious MIB1 system).

The canonical thread on doing this swap / upgrade (at least, the one that has provided me with the most info, and gave me the courage to pull the trigger) is this one at Vortex. First post (and thus pricing, some options, and some part numbers) is a little out-dated. Contact APG if you're interested and they'll help you out.

Sadly, this happened:

Broke an axle. Mercifully it happened right down the street from IDParts. In the past three weeks the car's been to North Carolina, Syracuse NY, and on Tuesday I was in Manhattan, and in New Hampshire yesterday. So I consider the breakdown location very, very fortunate.

Axles are original, 371K on them. Most of them in a car that's modified. And they include a lot of track days. I suspect it's the left inner joint that failed, but I'm replacing both axles. Seems like it's time.

Sounds like you got your moneys worth out of them! Glad it happened to you though as it would be heading to the junk yard for the average owner, more than likely.

that's for an Alltrack, but i imagine if you have MIB2 swap it'd be a lot easier to accomplish.
