Get a JVC DVD HU @ 10k. I haev posted details of the same somewher here at ICE section.

The cheapest Pio DVD HU costs 16k and Sony one at 12k.

sk456; PS2? yes you can. Zak should have fixed one by now. And teh topend Safari has one right?

Thanx esteem...but I think a PSP or a PS2 is too wild an idea..... with headphones is ok i guess...but an instaLlation in the frotn is really dangerous....

check these http://www.amazon.com/Sunvisor-Monit.../dp/B000E0E3MW

similar versions are available in UK.

and sk; being a frequent visitor at ICE section , you should have posted a budget.

I guess you need 20k: 10k HU + 5k screens X2

JKD im trying for a minimum budget...for a DVD install ....audio is a secondary requirement here...main is the video for the kids in the back.
Which screen would this be for 5K ? I guess one screen would be enough placed in the center at teh back...

i guess the shortlist so far would be :

JVC DVD HU - 10K
Screen 1 nos 5K
Speakers 4K
Wiring etc 1K
--------
makes it 20 K minimum

JKD can you give me model numbers for the screen?

q: dioes the car have a stereo. any stereo?

if it does one can get a 10DVD changer for 10K and a screen for 4-5K. However if he has 2 kids I'd recommend either having 2 screen (one on each headrest) or a 7" flip down screen. I prefer the 2 screen solution as it does not restrict rear view. the changer connects to the existing stereo via a FM modulator.
