in dash screen

What do you guys think of an in dash flip out monitor, and how hard would it be to run the a/v inputs into the glove box, without leaving any wires hanging.

I installed a Kenwood kvt512 about a week ago into my 2005 325i. I love it. It was really easy to install and running wires was really easy. I used a coat hanger to feed the wires through an opening. Only semi-hard thing was fitting all the wires behind the hu. Really tight space. I had to take out the vents above it and the climate control to have some more room. But it is manageable. Ill take some pictures tomorrow when I get the chance.

They are okay. If you do, get the centered bezel, not that ugly one that shifts to the left.

Maybe not your cup of tea, but I would go with the double din. You compromise the OEM look with the flip out, plus it covers your AC/Heater vents when deployed from the unit.

Mods: 19" ST-11's, AC Schnitzer Full Body Kit, Eibach Springs, AC Schnitzer Exhaust, Predator Chromium Angel Eyes, Eclipse Double Din, Tinted LED's.

as someone who has their vents covered up when the screen it flipped up I disagree. I'd rather have some air than none.
