if your goina use it alot i would recommend getting a "higher quality" unit!
But the ripspeed 1 isnt bad to be honest

I've my one 3 years now and its worked perfectly without any problems in my Legacy and my GSR before that. I lost the remote off it a while back which is a bit of a nuisance because of the fiddly little buttons and not being able to get a replacement remote. :thumbsup:

ive had 3 ripspeed headunits and not a bother with them, had a small problem with the sd card reader on the first one and they replaced the unit with a new one straight away, halfords are pretty good that way, they have all the outs at the back so ya can hook up a proper system too, i say go for it

There are shite in my opinion, had 1 in my last car and ended up replacing it twice, one coz the motorized screen kept failing, then the cd's kept skipping. Got a full refund after plenty of moaning.

Sorted a few extra ponies for a Kenwood KVT 524 DVD, savage bit of kit, full ipod control, got the extra bluetooth handsfree, and easiest splicing to watch DVD on the move ( wasnt me officer)!. I shopped around for a good while and got it for 500 notes delivered from the uk, they even threw in the fascia plate for the mondeo. Im putiing it in the leggy as soon as the adaptor panel comes in from japan parts. The Kenwood screens have a fancy way of sliding out, looks cool too.Pleanty of pre outs for amp etc, only downside is doesnt come with a remote, ya have to buy seperate.

i bought it here, but the price has since gone up. http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/kenwood-kvt-524dvd.html. google it if your interested and you will find some difference in the prices

As far as i know, bren in MDS in dublin sells them too.
