RE: [DML] In-dash DVD player?

I chose an Alpine IVA-310R (the light from it can be set green or red) or
the IVA-310RB gives a nice blue light. 

Before the install I had the original Craig stereo.  Once I had carefully
opened up the din area to accommodate the new standard size I was extremely
impressed with the colour match of the new unit and that it looked like it
was installed from day one.  The subtle chrome strip and chrome dial helped
make the unit look more in keeping with the age of the car.  

The screen can be programmed to move out more from the head unit
horizontally at the base as well as then opening up vertically.  This
creates about a good inch and a half (or more) for the air flow so as not to
be restricted by the screen.  By being closer to the driver you can rest
your hand on the gear shift and operate the screen with your finger.  You
can also close the screen whilst driving if you need that initial blast of
hot/cold air in the face.  Another aspect was that the stereo surround
covers the top of the aircon panel seamlessly and therefore blocks out any
light that used to ooze out above the panel.  In summary it isn't the
cheapest system, but the screen is impressive and then you can also add a
camera/sat nav/ iPod and more.

..Does anybody have personal experience with installing an in-dash DVD 
player in their Delorean? I was thinking of buying one with a flip-up 
screen (yes, I know it will block the center AC vents but that doesn't 
really bother me) and was wondering if anybody could recommend a model 
or two? Low-end, high-end, all suggestions are welcome. Just as long 
as it will fit in the radio mounting bracket correctly. Feel free to 
email me off-line.
