Most aftermarket options look as nice as a bag of smashed assholes. Too much flashy flashy, multi-colored lights, and dancing dolphins. This look complements the Rover look nicely - simple, and attractive for being purposeful. I’ve got a Becker Cascade Pro in my BMW with maps that only work in Europe, but I love it because it blends perfectly with the interior.

Plus this says Land Rover on it, will come in a green and white box, and will make me deeply and disproportionately happy when I install it in my Td5-style dash.

I think that's because their target demographic is 17 year old boys.

I don't think that is as true as it used to be. There are a lot of nice, classy options these days aim at people that want all of the modern connectivity features in their older vehicles. I have a few fiends who have done one and they look completely stock.

X2 you can definitely find tasteful options out there. My single DIN post gives you an Alpine Halo which has a 9" touchscreen, even with a all the bells and whistles (including an external amp, a programmable switch controller, and a backup camera) it comes close to the same price.

Yes. And there are lots of nice unit even at a much lower price and many are panel mount.

One example.
