    My pioneer 5200hd should come today. It was 129.99 but it came with a free wiring harness and dash kit plus free shipping. Hd radio built in, USB and aux port on the face

    The words Headunit, Best, and "under a hundred bones" don't go together.

    You can get something decent for under 200 though.

    Stock for now
    Like you I wanted something other than the stock deck, not too much money to play my ipod & mp3s. I bought this Kenwood KDC-MP345U deck last yr from Crutchfield. It works great & cost $109 shipped using a $20 online coupon.

    http://www.crutchfield.com/p_113MP3...Category|[rank266150]Car+Stereos+&+Components

    You could buy it today for $99 using the coupon 3A825 get free ship, wiring harness, & fit kit. The coupon works for any deck over $100.
    So even if you do not buy this one, you can save $$.
    I google coupons all the time before I buy anything online :eek:
    Thanks to the DIY help here I installed my first stereo. It sounds 1000x better than the stock radio & I can play mp3, use my ipod. By far my best $100 mod. I do not know if its the best, I am sure those cost much more money! But it works for me.

    for me, the usb interface was a must - using a small flash drive it is so much easier than burning discs.... something to think about.

    Finally got my pioneer installed today. Hd radio is awesome and there are tons of features concerning sound quality. A little weird getting used to it but I like it
