Default Looking for new headunit

well it all started last sunday when i picked up this alpine for 175.99 at bestbuy

alpine cda-9856

i was under the assumption it had a remote, but it didnt....so i took it back

now i'm looking at the pioneer deh-5800mp from crutchfield for 179.99

what do you guys think of this headunit? i plan to keep stock speakers at the moment since almost everyone recommends to change the headunit out first..

IMO,the better it matches the color of the interior,the more I like it

As long as it has the features I would be looking for

The 4800 is the same thing, just without the graphics. It is like $30 to $40 less.
