You want looks? Or you want sound?

Alpine man, and never look back.

Look Eclipse's way for sound Quality... and Alpine for very good balance of sound/looks.

For $250 at a retail store, you're not going to get much in the way of sound quality to tell you the truth.

What are you audio upgrade plans other than the deck? Possible in the future?

blaupunkt is CRAP!< they sell it in WAL-MART for F***s sakes.... lol, and for 250 you aint gonna get much, what do you mean you dont care about the treble n bass option??? every deck has that... i think what you mean is subwoofer control or sub outs... which a deck worth anything less than 300 (brand new) that is wont have... THey best way to go is Alpine, but your looking minimum 300-350 for a solid head unit, you can get a decent pioneer deck that looks good and is really easy to use for around 200-275 plus tax. BUt please do not buy a Blaupinkt, i meant you already have a car that is higher class, why cheap out on anything that is going into the car...
