    to upgrade.....or to make money, that is the question.

    i just bought an eclipse CD8455 head unit (yes, the $600 model) for $200. i currently have an alpine 9813 unit, and i'm debating whether i should keep the alpine and make a quick buck, or install the eclipse unit and sell my alpine for $150-175 or so. and no, the eclipse is not stolen. it's coming from the owner of a store that doesn't need it anymore.

    "the owner of the store doesn't need it anymore" ????

    that is odd, isn't that the 2005 model? why would he not need it anymore, they just came out.

    You win either way. If you run the eclipse, you get a better deck, and some $$ out of the Alpine. If you stick with the Alpine, you still have a nice deck, and make money on the eclipse. If you really cant decide, use this very scientific method to choose - toss a coin.
