    need a stock(ish) head unit with bluetooth

    i am considering this .

    i had an idiot break in and still a worthless walmart dual brand cd player, the idiot left the complete harness (that was worth more then the cd player) so i want to try and put something in that looks stock.

    the problem is it is a 95 mitsubishi eclipse, so yeah, its gotta be black with no frills and green or yellow display.

    i NEED bluetooth. and i do not care if it really is stock HU out of some other car as long as its din-able. preouts would be nice, but not a deal breaker, i will probably put in a small 4 channel amp and 4 good speakers and leave it at that.

    A double DIN will not fit a '95 Eclipse factory dash.
    JENSEN AM/FM/WB/CD/RBDS/USB SiriusXM Ready and iPod Ready Stereo with Bluetooth
    If you rubbed the branding labels off the top of the faceplate this would probably not earn a second look. I've seen a similar model in some heavy trucks and it's a very utilitarian radio.

    Another option is to get a factory radio and add a Bluetooth interface, possibly one from Parrot, and hide that screen when you park the car. A lot of amplifiers can connect to speaker level outputs, so you'd still be able to add an amplifier.

    dual din is an option. 1g and 2g eclipse had a 1 din with a cuby. or a dual din if you had premium system. only difference was the bracket.

    that jensen could work, but like the VW one i posted its 100$ more then the Rosen 2din that has navi. though the Navi feature is not really going to fit into my "appear stock" on a car from 1995, they are plain looking enough that i bet most the idiots around here wouldn't know one way or another.

    That explains the lack of a double DIN dash trim kit.

    Where are you finding a Rosen double DIN for $240?

    219.95 and free shipping.

    i do not think the universal 2 din model is as popular as the custom fit models. it would be competing with JVC and Pioneer for the aftermarket.

    Ah, I see, you're looking at quite an old model that's refurbished. Rosen, Alpha-Nav, Valor and some others are competing for a different target market than the big name brands. Some people want a navigation touch screen head unit as a modern utilitarian upgrade but they don't want it to look like something made for teens and 20-somethings.
