Have 15k coupon for accessories from Concorde for my Safari 2.2 -- DVD + Screen?
 
Guys, i have the 2.2 Safari EX 4X4 and I had some wiring issues with my 4X4 system a few months back. When i escalated the issue to Tata, Tata guys promised me accessories worth 15k from any Concorde showroom.

My vehicle already has Sunfilm, Seat Covers and Reverse sensor + screen which i had got installed from Concorde at the time of delivery. Now i was wondering what would be the best use of this 15k for my vehicle. i have ruled out the hydraulic jack and the crash guard. What really is left is DVD player + screen (unless you have other ideas). As for by current MP3 player in the Safari, i am thinking of putting that in my Ford Ikon and jettisoning the Ford cassette player.

Will appreciate if you can help me by suggesting what make and model of accessories should i go for from Concorde to get a deal that is value for money and close to the 15k watermark.

You could consider underbody coating. Does the car have an immobiliser based security system ? Or a gear lock ?

Edit: How about a headlamp (+ relay) upgrade ?

It will not be possible to get DVD player + screen at showroom prices for 15k. Anyway, you mention that you already have a screen, what screen is that?

You can even think about getting a front windscreen film like llumar air75 as one of the components. May cost around 5 to 6k in the showroom.

Just the Alpine DVD HU if you can :)

It does not have underbody coating, but it does have immobilizer.
maybe its just me but i find the stock headlamps to be sufficient for city use. Thanks anyway for the input.

i have that mini screen in the rear view mirror. Its not useful for the DVD purpose.

Concorde guys told me that i can get a Xenex 9" screen for around 10k and the Pioneer DVD player for ~13. Not sure though how inflated these prices are. They are saying both these carry a 1 yr warranty.

Against the 15k coupon from Tata i took a Kenwood DVD player and a bunch of trinkets from Concorde motors over the weekend.

The search is now on for a pair of reasonable headrest mounted 7" LCD screens. Any pointers will be highly appreciated.

I have not seen any 7" screens for headrests. Most are smaller.

I saw one from Necvox and another by a company called RD or something over the weekend. Problem is not being able to tell which product is better and if the price quoted is honest.

Necvox or RD should be the choice. Both are brands known in the Indian market.

Are the prices quoted fair?

Update -- i took the DVD player from Concorde, Kenwood (13k) -- Kenwood Corporation | Car Electroics | Visual & Navigation Systems | KDV-MP4339

Also i got 2 headrest mounted screens installed from outside (8.5k). Make - Supertech, size 7". I did not go for RD because they were available only in 6".
