Ford has done the same thing and our Flex h/rest were so annoying and I found headrests out of an 85 BMW fit perfectly and were adjustable for tilt as well, I see all kinds of Beemers on the road with the same head rest so there will be lots of them in the salvage yards. You have to cut the back of the seats open and break the white plastic retainer tubes with some small channel lock pliers but they are all you need to be safe.
