I'd like to get my kids those backseat TV screens along with a DVD player. Does anyone have any ideas where to find them and how much and how do they look on your car? I don't really like those ones with dangling cords and straps everywhere... My car is a 525 with NAV.

Thanks for your reply:thumbup:

I'm not a big fan of Audiovox, but I piked up a movies-2-go set from the local electronics store for a couple hundred dollars. The set has 2 monitors that slip over each head rest, a player that sits on the mid floor in the back. The 12v power and audio input were ideally located at the back of the middle counsel to keep everything in the back of the car. We don't even think about taking long trips without it to keep our 2 & 3 year old quiet. When the audio gets too annoying each of the monitors has a jack for headphones. It is a good cheap solution.

Thanks for the info. I'll check out those Audiovox. What store you got them from?

I recall seeing a roof console mounted one on a non-US BMW web site but now can't find it.
It looked pretty good.

Here it is:

I've seen that one on BMWNA accessories but the list price is around $1,800.00 plus $500.00 in installation kits and etc... But it looks pretty good though!

"This system does not fit the 5 Series Sports Wagon."

:(

I wonder why? You'd think the wagon would be a more likely target (kids etc) for the system.
