    Default Rear view with dvd screen

    Quick question for you guys with a centre roof screen. What is the rear view like through the mirror? The roof seems to be about 5-6 inches above the line of sight of the mirror. Im asking because Ive seen one on ebay I like the look of but am not to sure if I would like the fact of not having any rear view mirror.

    Toys R Us and Argos have the twin headrest ones quite cheap now, I know they dont have the look of a roofy, but might be a better idea for safety reasons, especially if you have the kids in the car.

    I was going to have the roof mounted in the Vectra but did'nt want to mess with the rear view, so I fitted headrest versions.

    BUT..................... I will use the DVD most when I am travelling on holiday.............with the caravan on the back.................yes you guessed it, you can't see out the rear veiw mirror anyway!!!

    But I like the look of the headrest screens now.

    I started to knock up a flip down screen that went in the space where the sunglasses holder goes. Never finished it - was the lack of rear vision that put me off.

    You could see it while were driving. Wasn't sure if this was legal and thought a bit obvious for the cops. Thought they wouldn't like the lack of rear view either. It was dead obvious from behind and the side. I'm not saying I cared just thought it better not to take the p*ss and try something less obvious.
