Default New radio

Well the Delco radio that is in my '95 has never worked quite right. Mainly, it eats CDs. :( So I searched for a new radio and found this:
http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn...410536,00.html
Best Buy carries it and will install it and the harness to hookup to the Delco speakers today. I also went to Rockin Ronny'* and looked at what they had in stock. They only had one Eclipse that I looked at, offered 3 years warranty on it, and 1 year of "If its stolen we give ya another free." But the face did not come off, and they wanted up to $75 more for the harness. Best Buy claims they charge $50 more than the system is worth so they can offer "$1 install." I believe them to. Both Rockin Ronny'* and Best Buy had the exact same Pioneer radio. Rockin Ronny'* wanted $179, Best Buy wanted $109. Once again proving, its better to shop around instead of getting screwed over by a seemingly good store.[/url]

be careful about best buy though because they did not wire my friends deck right in his explorer and the face never opened because they had wired it wrong. I took it apart and rewired it and it worked perfectly. many times they also do cheesy installs so make sure everything works and you are not missing any parts or have anything broken when it comes back because i have been dissappointed with them in the past for that kind of stuff.

Sweet Sounds is good. But only if you get the owner, Jeff Swery. If there is a fat guy behind the counter walk out, he is worthless. Jeff will set you up with what you need, not what will make him the biggest buck.

Thanks for the warning about Best Buy. I was worried about that myself and have no intention of leaving the parking lot (or even paying a penny) until I am satisfied. If they don't like my terms and conditions. . . too f'in bad.
