    dont go mad on the size as its all pretty tight mate, mine are 5.8" and the thickness is as important,not much room, alot of cutting ( BIG BALLS ) as far as the leathers concerned.
    i lost alot of the tilt function due to the bar inside touching the back of the screens, but saying that if you tilt the headrests forward then the screens are angled and the kids wont see them properly.
    as for sellers im not sure, but glad to help with anything else mate.

    a small 12v dvd player and a ps2, both through the headrests and the rns-e unit, also had the vim hack done.
    i can still have one thing on in the back and use rns-e seperatly if i want to.
    best of both worlds.
    split the audio aswell, so kids can watch & listen ( through headphones) if i want to listen to mp3 etc through the rns-e/ car speakers.

    if you notice in the pic, there not flat at the bottom, they have a bump which doesnt look as good as it could but hey, they were cheap.

    I think you can buy universal headrests with screens in for about £400 fitted. Then if you sell the car you can take the screens out and put the original head rests back in.

    Universal headrest monitors can be had for £150 from the bay as can roof flip downs.

    I have had my eyes on some for ages. I would however get some kind of headrest covers to put over them when you leave the car unattended

    Looking at the roof flip-down jobbies. How do they connext/fix to the roof?

    Are they any good?

    For c£80, can't go wrong so long as they work properly, and don't de-value the car!

    thinking about it, i think his are the ones with the built-in dvd player, he got them off ebay from hong kong, around 170 i think he said, saves cutting out your headrests and you can always take them out if ever you move on :)
