    I looked at these headrests last week. If you do decide to buy them they go for cheaper as auctions rather than "buy it nows". Check the guys other auctions for details.

    And as for why I didn't buy them. I reckon in my Zafira B the angle of the screens would be wrong due to the angle of the seat backrests. Also they don't appear to have notches on the uprights to allow you to adjust their height. Risk of theft with them left in the car 24-7. With them being a permanent fixture in the car by rights you'd have to inform your insurance company and if you had an accident and suffered whiplash, which is often a result, then the insurance company would no doubt use your non type approved headrests as a get out clause... Colour match was also an issue.

    But other than that, I nearly bought them ...

    Mystery Machine (has a Zaf GSI!) covers his with hats! Seriously, at a glance you would never no. He has 5 screens tho, 4 in the headrests with wolly hats on. LOL

    they do look good, colour match would be an issue tho, looks like the leather is really shimny as my leather is dull!

    @ 280mm wide (11") they will be way too wide to sit in the original slot of the GSI's headrest space.

    shame cos i recon they'd look pretty good, not sure if re-fitting them in the gsi's headrest is possible either, as the headrests are 8" wide and looking at the pics from ebay (the extra around the screen) i'd say they wont fit.

    tried to edit my post.

    however these should fit. i have 5.6" moniters in my headrests so i'd say these will fit.
