I need help choosing headrest monitors, anyone?

I just got my 2011 M3 Sedan. The reason why I bought the sedan version is because I have a kid and IMO it looks better too. I am just wondering if anyone can give me any advise or tips on which headrest monitor to choose from. The car is all black leather interior with the carbon-fiber trim. Anything will be helpful. Brands, style etc.

I just got a cheap ass black trimmed mirror that buckles to the headrest. Though it is patterned like carbon fiber! Babies R Us, think it was 15 bucks.

How old are your kids? Mine are 2 And 4 and my wife declined the option on her suv because several of her friends said the kids preferred the portable DVD ( in there laps) for long rides. They are MUCH cheaper, and If they break - which I have heard of, you don't have to spend a fortune to repair

+1 Get a portable DVD player or cooler yet, buy an Ipod Touch for videos and music. You can then take them anywhere--planes, trains, and automobiles!

You will probably need to get something to hang on the back of the headrests rather than integrated into them. I believe after '08 or '09, the headrests are "active" or something. They are pretty hard to take out of the seat for replacement plus you may have a hard time matching the Novillo leather, although you do have black which should make things easier if you don't insist on a perfect match.

BMW offers a (kinda ugly looking if you ask me) headrest monitor behind the 5 series seats. Maybe this can be retrofitted on the 3 series. IDK.


Cheers.
