I wont call it best.
It is really good.
There are however issues with it.

You wont be able to get all the radio channels on it.

But for the price, nothing beats it at the moment.
Yeah Abhinav,it'll have an issue with even numbered channels.

Anyways i have never used Radio on the current HU as well.
So that is not a problem

But is there a problem if i source it from Dubai???

Upgrading..

After having no clue running around everywhere to source a headunit.I finally got an answer for all my queries.I consulted Ramie for my ice queries and got every answer i needed.
The Headunit i'm going for is a Pioneer 5150 which has all features that i need and 3 rca with 4v pre-outs.[clap]

Finally i'll get my car ICE-d from a professional installer tommorow.
Thanks a lot Rajeev for helping me out of this mess.

ICE-gurus, i'm planning an amp upgrade as well so please guide me further. [thumbswink]

Looks like there are many persons who complain about Sony. I think it actually sells because of Sony's reputation in other products in manufactures.


@Renegade, Congrats for the HU. How much does it cost?

Finally upgraded my system

Went at ramie's place today to get my headunit upgraded and system tuned.
Rajeev, it was so nice of you to join me.[thumbswink]

Today got my headunit changed by ramie, ramie did his magic. He tuned the sound system just as i wanted, Mid's crisp and bass kicking.
And the best part is, even after turning the volume knob all the way up there is no distortion or jarring. After listening to the setup, me and rajeev were like [shock].We couldn't believe the way it was playing, the change was drastic.I never ever dreamed that my car would sound the way its sounding now.

Hats off to Ramie praaji, "tussi great ho" [clap].
