Default Need an opinion.

whats everybodys opinion on this head unit:

http://www.crutchfield.com/*-0HutPR7...i=113EZ900#Tab

im considering getting that for the bonne.

also crutchfield says the pac swi-x steering wheel control interface is incompatible with my 90 sse, is this true or is it just a database error on their part?

also they are saying i need this relay to install a radio in it (i didnt use one in the past and had no problems) http://www.crutchfield.com/*-OdPcMFT...5000&*=0&cc=01

is that also a database error?

I have to agree with Pat. HU'* are completely personal opinion. I REALLY like my Pioneer, and didn't like the alpines and Kenwoods that I looked at (in person). It is really all what you like.
