dont want to spend too much. would prefer a dedicated ipod output and decent sound quality. i am a bit of an audiophile so want to spend money where it counts. I want probably an alpine or jvc, but one thats not too expensive. I'm looking at something that is dark coloured and will either auto dim or not be too bright. I dont want distractions. I have an alpine right now but its been dodgy since i got it (2nd hand deal). It plays mp3 cd's really well but i like radio sometimes and thats where its faulty.

i want amber illumination and dark screen so that looks like what i want. I dont really want to spend too much but i know spending more will get me better quality. any units i might want to look at? i work in frauds so get a discount there but they are expensive to start with (got a jvc unit that was ace for £15 less than with my discount and it was in a better colour too)

Yup it gives me helpful driving hints like:

'Drive faster'

'See if you can get the arse end out going round this roundabout'

'Cut up that person who just flashed their lights at you'

'That guys looking in his rear view - brake test him!'

'Run over that cat'

'Make a wanker sign at that person for only doing 90 in the fast lane'

'You are driving a BMW the best car on the road, this makes you better than everyone else - you also have a large penis'

God I love my BMW!

may well be a little too late for this, but have you seen the new fusion unit with a flip front that you slot your WHOLE ipod in behind?
looks pretty sweet!
