    Quotes for Headrest screens

    Drove down to SQ Plus yesterday and asked how much to fit;
    2 x Necvox 6.5inch screens to rear headrests and dvd player in dash.
    Guess what he quoted me.... £1700... That must be a grands labour???

    Neway sack that, can anyone tell me anywhere better in the Manchester area or how to do it myself?

    It's a doddle !

    Hardest part would be making a good job of putting the screens in the headrests.
    I daresay you could get someone to supply just them though.

    Then it's just wiring, keeping it tidy and hidden.

    DVD player is just like fitting a HU.

    B- How do i get the dvd player to play on two screens? Do I need a switch or something?

    tbh i think your going to struggle ot get 6.5's in astra headrests...

    I can fit them for you if you want and supply the goods, a dvd player and two decent screens inc fitting will be around £500. thats for a single DIN DVD with remote etc and everything wired up.

    Im close to shefflield if thats any help. i presume SQ plus was some distance away?

    Regards

    Well i went to "The Car Audio Centre" in Manchester and they were guna do me
    2 x Clarion 5.8inch screens + Legacy Din DVD Player wired for £500. When the guy came to look, he said he couldn't fit them into the headrests without alot of work. Due to them being Stitched up and having plastic insides

    In the end they offered me A Sony 7inch roof screen with player for the same price
    but i didnt think they suited the Astra. (maybe a jeep type thing)

    Not sure what to do....
    Could always go for the headrest clamps but not too sure on the looks of these....
