    I need to replace the head unit in the ti...

    it's got a tape player. lol

    my only concern right now is that i want it to have ipod hook up/control built in (and preferably in the rear so i can run it to my glove box out of sight)

    amber display preferred (to match interior lights)

    as cheap as possible on this one... i think $150 is too much. i'd love to spend under $100 if possible.... but i won't buy a dual or a jensen :)

    Since neonmike has your back I won't chime in quite yet, however; don't get that head unit. Like he already said, you could do WAY better. *cough*

    It doesn't do CD at all. U can however hook up a pen drive/USB drive to it. I used an 8 Gig one so its like having a hard drive in dash receiver or you can hook up the Ipod or any other MP# player. Also can add a cd changer but CD's wull be out in 5 years.

    I'd rid of it for 125 + shipping thats inclusing the Sirius Tuner which was like 110 or so.

    100 for the Amp if anyone is interested. Stuff was installed for only 3 months and was bought brand new
