    Default Installing a DVD player

    Hi All,
    I've been looking around and found I could get a Vauxhall roof mounted DVD player for the kids in the back. Its from a Zafira. Does anyone know if it can be installed into a Vectra Hatchback? has anyone had any experience at this or is there a better alternative.
    Your thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Thanks
    Lee

    roof mounted would in my opinion mean running wires through the roof lining.Could be done i surpose if it comes with wire or original plug otherwise you may have to source theses yourself.How much it costs,work involved,positioning,linking up to existing speakers.Im not trying to put you off im just outlaying things involved.

    you can always nip into a local ice shop and ask them how much to retro fit it for you and this way you would also get a guarantee on the installation of it all....

    Thanks for that, I realised cable routing etc would be involved, I didn't know if any other top spec vectra's had a DVD installed which could be fitted to lower spec cars.

    Any examples of these mate, I would have thought the headrest would be too small and what about cooling. My SRi headrests any tiny

    There is an option for a roof mounted dvd in the vectra (according to the VX website it's a £695 dealer fit option), i would suspect the Zafira one is the same

    find the measurements of your headrests and the look for kits which will fit or change headrests to ones that the screens will fit

    Less than £200 for THESE complete new headrests with dvd players built in. Totally separate units so no arguing in the back
