Recommend a headunit for me.



I decided to donate my headunit to the local crackhead fund, and require a new one.

I would like something reasonably priced (going into my beater, which i dont even always lock). It must have bluetooth, because apparently our nanny government believes i'm not responsible enough to hold a phone AND drive at the same time.

Other than that, something with decent sound quality (ideally time correction and a half decent EQ), and has to play mp3's.

Anything around 150$ is fine, used is fine. If i have to pay more to get what i want i will, but this deck will likely be sold by a crackhead for 10$ at some point aswell.

Sorry to hear. From my experience you can't go wrong with Pioneer, I'm not sure which ones have bluetooth capability though at your price range..

DEH-7900BT?

http://cgi.ebay.com/Pioneer-DEH-P790...item45ef680377

It has to have bluetooth built in, since the adapters usually cost 100$ on their own.

Not really, a half decent Mp3 deck with a decent eq and time correction is at least 100$.

150$ is a starting point, i'll spend up to 250$ if its a quality deck. Most of the pioneer bt decks on ebay are at or under 250.

I wish car decks didn't look like ****ing christmas trees. I had a nice subtle one in my e34, a Pioneer deck. I want to get one with an aux port in my civic, but they all leap out at you screaming for attention with the flashing lights and the blinking... I ****ing hate that.

Yeah, i would definatly bitch more but:

A) i dont remember what i did/happened the night that it went missing

B) when i got to the car the next day, it was unlocked, and the only thing missing was the faceplate to my headunit, and my cigarettes. (And a 1$ american bill).

My e39 m5 rims where untouched in the backseat, GPS was under the passenger seat, favourite paratrooper knife was in the door card, subs/amps and clothes in the trunk were also untouched.

So overall, no complaints, since its very likely i left the car unlocked. Some crackhead broke into my e36 this summer and stole my other GPS. That was a pain, mostly cause of the shattered glass and broken window. (It also was the first time that i definatly could've prevented being stolen from if i had a gun, as i ran out with my BB gun and a baseball bat, but it didn't help)

In any case, i'll go pick up that HU from ebay today, hopefully it will be good.

I know the mic with this JVC deck sucks, it uses a standard 3.5mm jack for the mic, anyone wanna suggest one for car use?

I bought a Kenwood KDC-X993 on ebay new for $230CDN. It has bluetooth, plays MP3's via CD or USB and you can colour match your lighting (1000 colours) and looks somewhat normal (volume and tuning knobs)
