If you want a good quality headunit with good quality sound then avoid Sony at all costs especially anything from their Xplod range

ive got a pioneer DEH-P77MP... its discontinued now, it doesnt have a colour screen... just black metal face with white lights and text... but its the absolute nuts.... sound quality its 2nd to none... picked mine up for half price at £200 in halfords...

ive heard good things about alpine head units... and if your after a cheap one search for "shark mp3" on ebay

hope this helps

Agree with MR Skyline. Steer well clear of sony car audio kit. Its cheap and nasty and just being sold on the Sony name. Claire Has a Kenwood Mp3 head unit for about the same price which is pretty cool and quite flashy.

I use Pioneer DEH 77P its not a flashy head unit but it sounds good.

sony are crap in my opinion they do lots of tricks but sound crap and have a habbit of not lasting very long

in my opinion go for an alpine sound awsome you can do loads with them and I have never really had a problem with them
