Question Part Number for Floating Rear Entertainment System?

Does anybody know the part number of a 2013 7-Series floating rear entertainment system including the mount on the back? I wonder if this can be retrofitted?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, there is a measure in ISTA/P for rear seat entertainment retrofit. There may be a part number for the kit, but I haven't come across it.

You'll need a lot; the monitors, of course...plus the rear brain, new rear center armrest with ZBE, remote, wiring and of course coding.

Thanks itschase! To be frank, I'm really interested to learn how the monitor is mounted to the back seat. Already got 2 top-notch 9.2 inch Sony tablets from Japan. They can be wirelessly charged so there won't be tricky wiring needed. I just can't find a nice way to mount them just like BMW. I've been researching some car seat mounting racks, but found none that is concealing and firmly made.

I still can't find the part # for the LCI kidney grille, finally called my friend who works at a local BMW dealership and he advised me that BMW hasn't updated their BMW parts catalog since May of this year so a lot part #'s for parts on the LCI won't be available until the catalog is updated.

Here's a link to access the BMW parts catalog via BMW.com;

Hummm you could go with the base support from the "travel comfort system" and build a system to hold the pad off of that. It's part 1 in the below diagram, BMW part number 51952183852, and avaible HERE.

For $20, you can give this a try - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1218363391673

I have it in my wife's Mazda and it works really well. The only detraction is choosing which side to mount it on when you have 2 kids if you don't have 2 iPads.

You may also want to ensure this doesn't push your headrest up too much for your liking - keep the receipt.

Someone who mounted it in their F10 - http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...0&postcount=10

I'm not sure why they are mounting it so high, perhaps for the photograph? I would put it as low as possible, since it seems like the headrests on the F01 are pretty high in their lowest position from memory.
