I'm not sure this is the right word in english, but that's what i mean:

Is it possible to temporarily remove this part in order to add this extras, which I have recently bought:

No, they are active head rests.

If you can adjust them in height then you will also be able to remove them. And the fact that they are active does not have anything to do with the fact that headrests are detachable or not. Usually the active headrests are activated mechanicly and not with pyrotechnic.

You'd have to take half the seat apart to remove them.

Guys... Its not that hard. Here is post that can help.
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=414&p=3709&hilit=Head+rests#p3721
You need to remove first those plastics covers and then move a little bit skin or material that cover seats... there will be little stick to move (on "eleven o'clock") and voila. Ready to go. Remember to move back rest maximal to back to be able to remove head rests. If not doing this roof will not let you make it possible :)

It's easy to take headrest off first press the button on the side of the headrest to push it up then on one of the sides where the post slides in hold that in whilst pulling headrest up

That is what I have tried, but no success. Maybe it's not so easy to remove them.
