Rear Entertainment retro fit
« on: October 29, 2017, 10:13:21 PM »
Has anyone retro fitted the original DVD player and centre monitor to their E70? (Mine’s a 2012 40d M sport)

I see that they are readily available through breakers, but wanted to know how easy it would be to fit?

Have a look on REALOEM for the retrofit kit numbers and there should be a reference to a BMW EPA document.  Those are the fitting instructions.  If you have a friendly BMW Parts Dept they’ll either print it for you or email it.  :)

Hi the rear head rest mounts are just as good sold by BMW , one has a dvd player in the other a monitor , at least the kids in the back are looking straight forward instead of lower down on the centre console , they are easy to fit and a lot cheaper !

BMW retrofit kit no longer available (sold out) so the EBAs have gone too unfortunately  :(

They do still offer a tablet system which could be better and as said keeps them looking straight ahead at the right level.
