    So the 9887 is probably one the of best options in the 200-250 range?

    Absolutely. Along with the Eclipse and Pioneer listed. The downfall to those is that they require additional modules which cost more money to get iPod functionality where the 9887 does not.

    Sweet, thanks for your help. Hopefully I can pick one up for like 200.

    On another note, I've never installed a stereo before (CarToys), all I need is the harness right?

    What you will need depends on the vehicle it will go in. Newer cars require a CanBus system. Older ones all you need should be the wiring harness.

    I would put a Want To Buy thread up looking for a 9887. It will help you find one a bit quicker

    EDIT- Nevermind. Snag this up. You get the iPod Cable, blue tooth, and the headunit.

    Alpine CDA-9887 + iPod cable + KCE-300BT

    Is 190-200 a good price for one? I found one on a certain auction site that is pretty much new.

    Id grab the one I linked to. For an extra $30 you get bluetooth. Generally $200-$220 is what they go for. Id buy it from here instead.
