I like the features of an aftermarket unit but nothing flows as nice as an OEM. The aftermarket units attract too much unwanted attention and kinda throws the dash off a bit. But being able to watch DVDs and have a GPS in your dash is pretty awesome

Double din touchscreens look cool though. I hate single din decks.

Let me rephrase then, I think they are huge and ugly looking, and the screens look like crap with fingerprints all over them.

To each his own I guess... to me single DINS look like cheap 90s decks with buttons all over them and ridiculous styling that you would buy in a flea market. Every high end car has a large screen nowdays.

the black single din kenwood im looking at looks like it would flow nicely with the interior, mainly because the stereo/ac/whatever you wanna call it backboard is also black

They're all pretty ugly IMO but the sound quality you get just from the HU is worth it.

If you have one that you can adjust the lighting on it to be the same color as the car then I think it looks ok.

Stick looks best. Double din touch screen is second best.

Stock stereo sucks...so I got a much better HU. Looks are an added bonus.
