Removable Headrests on Mulit Contour Seats?

I'm going to use an ipad as the rear seat entertainment system for my kids and the mount I'm looking at requires removal of the headrest. Can the headrests of the f10 with the Multi Contour Seats (Code 456) be fully removed?

Thanks.

I think someone posted before that there are safety gas cartridges in the head rests.

Maybe on another forum. I remember seeing the pic. Some type of airbag?

No.

However, have no fear. Google Rocketfish iPad car mount. I have two And they work awesome. In reach of the kids. Holds securely and snaps right onto the posts without having to remove headrest.

Edit: I have the multicontour seats.

I decided to go for the BMW ipad mounts. I went to the dealer and looked them over, and they are very well made. Now I just need my car to be delivered, the wait is killing me!

I'l post a review and pics of the BMW ipad mounts after I (my kids) use (destroy) them for a bit.
