Default Help me pick a radio please!!!

I've been looking for a while and have been getting a bit frustrated with not finding exactly what I want, so I think it's time to ask for help. The Eclipse CD3200 is close, but doesn't allow wired steering wheel controls. Here are what I want.

- Single DIN
- Bluetooth w/ display readout
- iPod control via HU
- wired steering wheel controls (I use them when the door is closed, so the universal remote clone thingy won't work)
- min. 4 Volt RCA's (3 sets)
- ability to add Sirius radio


Help is much appreciated. If I'm missing anything, I'll add it to this post in bold.

Alpine FTW! 4v Preouts are the shizzle.. Mine was literally one of the first decks evar to have 4v preouts and full iPod integration and sat radio... 4 years old now. Alpine should have something right up your alley though.

AFAIK, Pioneer and Kenwood are the only ones with a wired steering wheel control integration. I might be wrong, but I don't think so.

Do the controls come with the deck? Or do they adapt to the existing controls?

I want to say Alpine has wireless steering wheels controls... personally I don't care for them, but I guess I'm not as lazy as you :P

What I'm looking for uses the existing controls that are wired to the stock deck. There's a universal type, but you have to mount a remote transmitter eye and it uses the new HU remote to clone signals. The tC has a stock radio cover that I generally keep closed. The stock radio is double DIN and I'm going to single DIN so I can stuff the turbo gauges in the lower slot. This will require modified radio brackets with a die grinder as well as some work to make the trim look good. So far, I've found a 3 guage plate and a double to 2 single DIN trim ring. I also may need a normal install kit for my car, but I'm not sure yet ..... depends on how the new HU mounts up to the modefied stock brackets. At the end, I want all of the features listed and be able to close my radio cover. So far, this has not been done to my knowlege.
