Ok so im looking to upgrade from my stock hu to an aftermarket one in my bmw 325i. What are some of the better brands for around 350-500$??

most of the top brands have models in that price range. what features do you want? that is the important question. active? usb? dvd? eq ability? t/a? front panel inputs? there is a lot to consider when you are looking for your own perfect hu.

you can get a really good HU for that price range all depends on what you want it to be able to do

You can have a double DIN, or you could get a DVD one (or a touch screen.)
Hell, for $500 dollars you could probably set up a nice CarPuter setup.

like he said above. i just ordered a pioneer avh 4000 double din dvd player touch screen, it was $319.00 from sonic electronix on ebay. comes with free wiring harness and they credit you $12.99 towards a dash kit. so i got everything for $357. but you gotta buy a remote for $20 which aint bad.

Kenwood KVT-614DVD, is $699.99 retail, 3 x 5v pre-outs, iPod, DVD, etc. Most flip-outs these days are either real expensive, or real ******. Jensen, Phase Linear, Valor, Farenheit, Dual, Sumas all make cheap flip-outs, but they're all absolute hunks of ****.

Alpine's flip out single din is very nice if you don't notice everything thats missing. Kenwoods are very nice too and have more to offer than Alpine. If you put more cash into it you can get a much better resolution screen.
