Hello,

I currently own a 2004 325i. I bought it with a standard cd player.

I went over to bestbuy.com to check out some of their in-dash DVD players, but the compability said none work with the 325i!

My question is: Do you know any that will work with the 325i? (In-dash).

My second question is, how useful are the sun visor LCD screens? And can i possibly hook this up to a ps2 in the glove compartment. This may be possible because it has a video in.

Here's a link to some sun visor/in-dash videos.

Thanks to any advice! I'm just looking to hook up a screen to dvd/ps2. ANYTHING but an overhead screen would be awesome.

PS: I posted this on the 3 series forum and the audio/electronics forum, didn't know which one it's suppose to be under

Provided that your oem deck looks similar in size to the older oem decks, be patient. Usually dash kits run about a year behind the carmaker. I wouldnt be at all suprised if an older dash kit would work. (anyone with an e46 help me out).

As far as the sunvisor monitors go, I will give you the same advise as I would for any mobile video display- DON"T GO CHEAP.

Regardless of application (sunvisor, headliner, in dash, headrest, etc.) I consistently have problems with lesser brands (necovox, emerson, etc.) and never have problems with the name brand stuff (sony, kenwood, pioneer). I havent seen any name brand visor screens, but I'm sure their out there.

I have a stockroom full of defective (cheap a#$) screens right now. Spend the money on a good brand, it's worth it.

You can do it, there's a dash kit somewhere for the E46 BMW's that allows you to use a standard sized head unit. I think woobie has it.. (not sure)
