Talking X3 DVD in Motion success!

So I didn't know when I bought our X3 that its DVD player plays full movies, not just DVD data disks for music playback. I modded our E39 M5, 540iT and E86 MC with TV/DVD and it's been a blessing on long road trips. So this news about our X3 exited me. I did some Googling and found this company that sells software to allow DVD playback while the car is in motion:

Read the site, its works EXACTLY as advertised! And it's about 1/10th the cost of having to buy modules and harnesses like I did for our older BMWs.

Here are two pics showing The Right Stuff in fullscreen and split screen:

p.s. In order for the DVD menu to appear, you MUST have the "radio" turned on. Don't ask me how long it took to figure out that little detail! It's not in the BMW manual.
