    I need to find a good deal on a head unit for my car. I have some old sony in there right now, but I would really prefer something with MP3 playback. Any reccomendations?

    You can never go Wrong with an Alpine. They're new stuff is nice too.

    They're quite expensive though, anything somewhat cheaper?

    I'm looking for something in the $250 price range

    Also, I'm kinda interested in JVC KDLH3100 and it's picture display. Is there any reliable sites for car audio where I can get this cheap?

    definitely alpine, clarion, pioneer maybe. I'm not partial to JVC because i had one and it was nothing to be proud of, lots of good brands around.,

    If it were me personally i would go with an alpine, but if your on a budget i would either go with a panasonic or a clarion.

    Get an eclipse. Like a 3424 is around 250 bones. Plays mp3s, has a true 3volt preout, and a 3yr warranty. Good for scratched cds too.:bigthumb:

    Another vote for /////Alpine. I love mine, and I got it off ebay for around $200, it's the CDA-9807, it will do everything you need.
