looking at the JVC KWHDR720 for 140$ but i cant find any place near to install under 120$ that includes the harness and faceplate, would it be worth it to get it professionaly done for 120? thats nearly the cost of the dang stereo.

$100-125 is pretty typical around here. That's what I paid. I wouldn't go too cheap, you get what you pay for.

I swapped out the HU, added XM and kept my Steering Wheel Controls.

I've got a Pioneer Z110BT upgraded to the Z130BT Software.

Granted that system is a full navigation system and isn't cheap but it works, fits and looks good.

All depends on what you want and how much you want to spend.

Pioneer AVH-3300BT will do pretty much everything you want, and then some, at a decent price.

Do the install yourself. I'm not mechanically or electrically inclined but got it done without killing the car.

I'll post up pics of my HU when I finish getting the stupid DDin
kit to line up with the dash right.

Current: MGW-p, H-pipe, SS OTRCAI, Lovell rear springs, Eliminator shocks and Pioneer AVH-P3300BT, JBA LTs+catless mids, Drilled/Slotted rotors, Kooks Afterburners, catch can & Tune Next: ??? Wish list: Intake & TB, modest cam, UDP, gears

The 3300 is nice and great bang for the buck. I wanted the 7" though and don't care about bluetooth so I went with the Pioneer AVH P4300DVD. Downside is Bluetooth is extra so I don't have it, and its another $100 for the steering wheel controls to work. Looks so clean and nice though. USB, SD card, Ipod cord, cd/dvd/mp3. $325 new off ebay.
