    Both much of a muchness. I would buy a higher spec model secondhand IIWY. If I had to choose though, go for the Pioneer as it will be cheaper/easier to buy the leads to connect to your steering controls
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    The pioneer would be my choice, but they are both great brands

    DO NOT TOUCH JVC, THEY ARE PAP

    Had one before, wouldn't play cd's without jumping. Recently bought another for the other half. Was fitted 2 days and started playing up. freezing, not releasing cd. Took it back but every time the car turned off it would reset itself and start working. Then was told by the **** in halfords that it could have been installed wrong......No chance, installed stereo's a fair few times and never had an issue. Then he blamed the fact that the heaters were situated just above the stereo and this could be making it malfunction.

    Seriously, come on!

    Always bought pioneer for my cars in the last 8 or so years, and only had to buy 3 units.

    Bought the 1st, sold it to buy one that played mp3
    Bought the 2nd, sold it with a car
    Bought the 3rd, still have it and still going strong

    Pioneer every day of the week, will never let you down and you will buy another when you upgrade in 5 years time

    I'm using Pioneer and would happily buy another when its time to upgrade (which may be soon).

    I've never had anything other than Pioneers and as above, will happily upgrade with another when the time arises.

    I've had about 4 JVC headunits and all of them have been great. Only reason I changed to Kenwood is I wanted something to work with my Ipod.
