4 inches is wayyyyy too small. 5.6" is a decent size. I reccomend "Farenheit" screens. I know they're not as popular as most screens but they have a very wide viewable angle.

If your even going to invest money into this.......you might as go all out. You should go with alpine, pioneer, of kenwood monitors. Farenheits are o.k. but they are somewhat Mickey Mouse. At my stereo shop.....we usually sell clarion as well. BTW, 4 is veerrrryyyy small. Might want to go with at least 5.6

I mean....farenheits are o.k. and do the job but if ur gonna do a system in a BMW.....especially and M3 i would go with at least clarion......if not alpine or pioneer......As far as installation......that sounds about right but ask to see pics or cars if they have any in to see the quality of their work.

Well, my opinion is that, unless you're trying to impress someone, the farenheits are ok. If you want something for your back-seat pasengers get the faretheits. They shouldn't b!tch about your LCDs anyway. Also, if you never intend to actually use these monitors might as well. If you're thinking car audio shows go w/ a quality panasonic, kenwood, etc.
