Hey guys any recommendations on a head unit for our car? can be either double or single din. Looking for bluetooth and satellite radio. Would also like to keep all my wheel controls including the phone buttons, so what harnesses do i need? Thanks

I love my pioneer avic x920bt. It's all in one with nav and it made the car sound so much better with just that upgrade. You're going to need an extra harness to keep the steering wheel controls, metra and axcess have them for about 50 bucks. Got all of mine working just fine with that

^^ That JDM bezel really cleans things up.

I installed a JVC KW-AV60BT. Got it for under $300 shipped. Used an $8 Nissan 07+ harness. Granted, I don't have steering wheel controls yet, but it works great. The hand brake bypass is stupid easy too. No extra parts needed.

Edit: Don't undervalue the importance of a physical volume button! I would go crazy if I had to push the volume button on a screen 350 times in single short trip..

Hey man,

Cheers

I have a sedan, I mounted it on the underside of the chrome trim that's above the license plate. Its held on by 2 bolts that are accessed from behind the trunk liner, then used the factory wire grommets for the back up camera wire. Cut a little U shaped hole in the trim to accommodate the backup camera wire and used a separate grommet for that so it doesn't pinch.
