    So that we understand what are you Really looking for? The 'coolest' OR 'best'. Although both terms are highly subjective to opinions, dunno too many that would have both for everyone.

    If it HAD to be one of those, then I would say the Pioneer.

    Re: Head Unit Upgrade Help!!!

    Ok understood, then I would suggest the Pioneer again being that your more into form over function....

    If price don't matter to you, I say go for in dash monitor instead. They are eye catching especially if you play music video during nighttime.

    Go for Pioneer Premier DEH-960MP, they are cool looking, but sometimes the motorized screen gets stuck in halfway.

    Or go for Pioneer Premier DEH-P8MP I think they are the best looking head unit today.
