Default Eclipse Head Unit

Well, some of you know that my 6 year old eclipse head unit decided to stop playing cds ( I loved that thing). So, I decided to set out and get a new(er) super coolio one. Check it out! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEBI%3AIT&rd=1

Please dont outbid me! I really need it for my trip to CT... Im coming from SC soooo I will basically go insane without a radio. I cant enjoy the sound of my engine that long lol. My only concern is how it will match my currnet interior considering they sort of went with a more "white" approach to the head unit



Here are some better pics and some more info on it. It seems to be a great deck and hey, its an Eclipse.

Like you I also worked in an install bay. I understand what you mean. The only time Ive seen those broken is when they were neglected. And after all Eclipse makes a good product generally. The deck im bidding on was near $400. It would cost me under $100 to get it fixed... still a good deal to me. I would have dumped the bank to get one of the new ones but im a little grossed out and dissapointed about the new design, it looks like an Eclpise got in bed with a kenwood. [:'(]

Can"t ad much about the head unit by Eclipse, but I can give proops to Eclipse for their speakers for which I run 6 of those in my Cruiser Car..I'm a Jazz and Hip-Hop(mild) fan and those Eclipse speakers are the ones for me...
