Kenwood is a really good headunit! I've got one in my car and used to have one in my truck that lasted for almost 10yrs. However Alpine is also really good, JVC uses an orange backlight, and I have also had a Sony Xplod too. Also owned a pioneer too, though I didn't like it at all.

Get the alpine headunit that gives you the ability to select from 200+ colours for the lcd display. Pioneer would also be a good choice for headunits.

Select the display colour that goes best with your dashboard and interior. It should be clear, consistent and conservative. You might have more than 1 suitable choice for this. Take your time with it, and remember to test its suitableness in both day and night conditions. Whatever you choose, do not make the display colour tacky.

The older Blaupunkt RDM126 ("7" series from circa '97) where manufactured with BMW interiors in mind. I used to have a TORONTO in my E30. It was a very fine aftermarket HU :thumbup:...arguably better than my current CD43 "Business".

Crap. Just saw that Staskz necro-posted.
