I've been toying with the idea of replacing the stock Head Unit on my Xb, and I figured that for the price of a decent new stereo I might as well just get a dvd unit.
I was checking out E-bay, and there are all these no-name Hong Kong import units for cheap. Do you get what you pay for? or less? or more? Has anyone bought one of these?
Also, has anyone bought an auction for the "wholesale lists" that tell you that you can buy name brand units for dirt cheap?
I'm interested in a double-din unit simmilar to the Alpine IVA-W200 . http://www.alpine-usa.com/en/products/product.php?model=IVA-W200

What about those Hong Kong import ones you see on Ebay though? I looked up the manufacturers and they're legit, but just don't import much the U.S. in a large scale. I really don't want one that performs and feels like the P.O.S. Jensen "Walmart Specials".

And then there is the GMC Din and a half. They just had to be different.

I always wondered what's a 2-din. I'm enlightened. :D
