Need new head unit

My Pioneer stopped working right last night..need a new one.

Any good suggestions? I'm lookin to spend no more than $200. I was wanting something with the motorized folding face type thing. Something that plays burnt CDs.

The one that had came in the car had this kickass motorized thing in it where you press a button and it folds down closer to your gear shifter so you can just rest your hand on it and extend your finger and there's the controls lol. It was an Alpine but the damned thing would NOT play burnt CDs so I had to ditch it.

Help me out.

I've seen those, can get em at Wal-Mart.

And what might this "bunch of stuff" be? ;)




My mom has an old JVC from her Civic that I was wanting to hook up but I don't know if I can find the wiring harness.

Re: Need new head unit

Well I was hookin up my JVC in my car few mins ago...the radio worked perfectly..hooked up in 2 minutes...but the right speakers wouldn't work, so as I was trying to figure that out the radio just stopped working.. I didn't mess with any of the wires or anything...and now NO radio I plug into it will work..
I gon't get it. All the wires are connected and electrical tape is wrapped around them.
