Buy one off eBay for half that, if not less. 5 minute install

Agreed. Ebay is the best place to get a head unit, and the install is less than 10 minutes. Mildly used ones can be found for even cheaper.

lol $4000.. as others said, just pick one up used and self install. Make sure it comes with a radio code otherwise VW will charge you for that and it won't work until you pay them ($100+ I believe)

Yes, don't forget that. Wait, since you are in Dubai, does that mean you have an RNS-510?

I'm not sure if that is possible. I would have to look inside the unit and such. I guess with good electronic skill (soldering, etc..) and an extra screen, you just may be able to do so. If it's just the glass and the screen itself isn't damaged, then that would make it easier. For much less than $4,000, you can purchase both a brand new RNS-510 and a VAG-COM cable for the coding. Here's an RNS-510 for auction now.

Also, if you want something a bit less than that, you can always go the route of a replica head unit. They look OEM too.

Mine is without a GPS, so i guess it should be even cheaper. But i can't find one without GPS on ebay.

i'm sure the ones without a GPS are 30% cheaper.

When you say "Sat Nav" that means navigation

You can get RCD510's on eBay for 200-400 depending on the version, very cheap.

Oh, so you have the RCD-510, not the RNS-510. Those are much cheaper.
