    £250 will get you a fair headunit

    I'm a pioneer man myself and you can pick up the DEH-P5800MP+IPOD PACKAGE for £188. I like that for the clean and in balance display. If you wanted a bluetooth phone kit built in aswell you could get the PIONEER: DEH-P55BT WITH IPOD ADAPTER for £215 or £178 without ipod adaptor

    nice lookin unit but the fact it has a non removeable faceplate (as do most double DIN HUs) probably un-nerves most owners for the sheer lack of security.
    Seems a good price tho £170 ish - delivered.... but unfortunately it screams "smash the windows, come get me"

    considering he's already bought the HU it's probably no use... Nowt wrong with Kenwood or Pioneer HUs either.

    Anyway bttt.... did u get the KDC-W7534U then? It certainly looks a nice piece of kit - interested in one myself..upgrade from my current Kenwood.
