    Has anyone installed head rest DVD players in their 1500's? I can't do the overhead mounted one because I have the sunroof. If you have, who did you use? What brand of DVD player?

    When i was installing a few years back it would really depend on the persons budget. Audiovox made a really nice unit back then that was fabric/color match of various factory head rests.

    i have also seen where people got units like this and had them re-covered to match. a auto upholsterer should be able to re-do these for about 100 each headrest. keep in mind these are not the same shape as the factory headrest. where as the ones i talked about above were.

    The other option is to get a "slave" monitor and physically cut the factory headrest and place it in there. For people that didnt want the expensive factory kits or wanted larger screens than the one i listed above this was an option.

    I am also considering doing this in my 2015 but i am looking probably at doing the non-dvd versions as i can just stream from my phone the video signal and do a netflix or sling tv.
