Deck hunting

I just bought an 06 Outback. I am wanting to replace the factory deck with something that had ipod and the option for Sirius. I found the dash kit on Crutchfield for $21. A lot cheaper than Certified Radio. They wanted $100!!! Haha. Certified also only showed me one Clarion deck. The dxz575usb for $170.

BestBuy showed me the Alpine ida-x100. Looked nice. No CD but then I don't have any cd's anymore. Seemed like good ipod/iphone integration. They have it priced at $330 but Crutchfiled is $300. Any other ideas? Or suggestions?

I am wanting to keep it under $300 for the deck.

Also I was thinking of replacing the deck in my Xtrail as well. It is a double din. Not really wanting to spend the money on a dvd or nav system for the xtrail so I guess I will need to find a dash kit that will reduce to a single din. If that looks like crap I probably won't do that. Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

If you want to keep a double din in your xtrail, check out the Kenwood DPX302.

First off, I suggest you think about what it is you are looking for in an aftermarket head unit/receiver - and compare it to what the OE HU does not have to offer.

If all you're lookin for is Sat Radio ready and iPod connectivity - then go with some Future Shop stuff like Pioneer DEH-P5900IB or the JVC KW-XG700

Plus I;m pretty sure you can haggle the sales reps for some sort of a discount - buy both HU at the same time
