I think the facelifted Stinger 2021 will get an updated 10" screen. They've added it to most of their cars, at least in Europe. I saw it on the much cheaper Ceed and it looks way nicer.
Hope once they put it on the new Stingers we will have a way to upgrade in some plug and play manner.

I'd say the 7" screen in my Canadian GT model is probably the biggest letdown on the car. Even if they kept the same screen but removed the big ugly gloss black bezel around it that would've made a considerable difference in how cheap it looks.

Just swapped the old 2018 screen for the 2019 low-bezel version. It is super easy but you must replace the lower panel on which the screen sits because the 2019 screen has a different footprint. It looks a way better and has a clearer display.

yeah I am confused on this, maybe it is regional? U.S. 2018 Stinger GT1 and GT2 got the bezzless screen, GT got the square screen with glossy bezel.

GT2 full loaded as mine had been offered with a huge glossy bezel in the early 2018 version in Europe and later was updated with the bezzless screen...

that sucks, the glossy bezel was one of the things that kept me from getting a GT. Does your dash have the larger sport screen or the small square?

Of course large... all features (360 degree camera, navi etc) are the same as for the rest of the World

Do you have a link to where you purchased the screen?

The head unit is the same in early 2018 and the in the updated 2019 version? You didn't have to change it? Does the touchscreen work well?

Nothing had to be changed except for the monitor (the head unit is from the early 2018). The touchscreen and all features work perfectly well and the same as before. Of course the quality of the picture (colors and sharpness) is a way better than in the previous monitor including 360 camera system. It is the best „upgrade” of the interior I have could have made.

Great, How about wiring is it plug and play?

Hello, sorry to ask, I have just purchased the later style screen (from a Dec 2019 car)to do the swap on my 2018 GTS, however, I am struggling to find the part code of the dash panel it sits on. From what I can tell oddly seems to be described as the under cover and comes in two options with and without HUD, I think the part code is 84740-J530WK - is that the right codes? And I don't suppose anyone knows if it is the same for left hand drive and right hand drive cars?

I have tried a number of car breakers and they don't seem to have it, I guess they sell them with the screens they had. If I cannot find one I may have to buy the part from a dealership and expect it to be very expensive.
