Help deciding which Sat Nav screen upgrade to go for

I am sure this has been covered before, so apologies if I have missed the post.

I would like to upgrade my 2008 HSE sat nav screen to have Wireless Apple Carplay, DAB radio, retain hands free calls and a reversing camera if possible.
My current car has the factory fitted TV tuner and the 4x4 screen, which I like but will live without if necessary.

From what I can find out the options I have are:

1 Tesla style screen and dash, this looks great but sounds glitchy and I am not sure if I will need a new amplifier.
2 New double din unit, this retains the old screen, but I am not sure if the 4x4 display and TV would still work and I would need a new amplifier
3 Flush mounted screen that replaces the old sat nav screen with a small bit of dash cutting. This sounds like the least work as it uses the AUX input, but I suppose I would still need a new microphone and DAB antenna, the screen is small though.
4 Larger screen mounted in front of the old sat nav screen. This looks ok and a bigger screen, but possibly not as neat as the flush one.

I think I am leaning towards the flush screen, but please let me know what option you would go for/have or if there are others I have missed and can anyone recommend a supplier/installer close to London?
Many thanks

Might be worth speaking to CDS (site sponsor) he can install Apple car play to existing systems in D4s may have options for D3??

Thanks Andy, I will message him, but if anyone else has any suggestions, do let me know. I am keen to have the new system installed as soon as I can.

The tesla screen looks cheap and nasty, stick to a double din or a unit that fits in place of the nav screen and connects to the factory head unit.

Thanks both for your replies. I will stay away fro the Tesla screen and the mounted screen in front of the existing screen and go for the flush replacement or double din, I just need to find an installer now and hopefully CDS will give me some advice.

Does anyone have a fitter they can recommend around London?
I think I will go for the screen replacement of my original sat nav and use the AUX on my OEM radio plus have a reversing camera fitted.
