The size of factory/ original display for your car, the car with 6.5 inch screen & 8.8 inch or 10.25 inch display are different on the screen parameter, since they have different screen resolution. thus, as car owner, you should know which screen size of your original display.

 Please notice: the year of production on the list is just for reference only.

How to choose it?

For example, if your car is 2018 year with ID6 menu style, the original radio is "small HU" (small head unit), the original display size is 6.5 inch, then you should choose "ID6 X1" as MCU (NO.2)

But if your car is BIG radio head unit (big HU), then you should choose ID5 5S (ignore the year of production or other aspects), the radio head unit type (small HU or Big HU) is in priority.
