i dont know about purple lights but almost all alpine head units are ipod compatible. i got mine for $199 and it came with the ipod cable.

Any unit made by alpine is going to be a good one. the only difference in the models is that the more expensive they get, the more features they have

this is a nice unit, a little pricey, but you can get it for about 200 and some change if you shop around and it has color matching capabilities.

yeah im gonna get the kdc-x794, never been a big fan of kenwood, i always ran pioneers but that kenwood looks sweet, and it got really good reviews from people and crutchfield. plus its supposed to be more customizable as far as the sound than a pioneer.

you should go with a pioneer avic d3...its got nav, bluetooth compatible and ipod compatible...its got the color preferences and purple looks pretty sick...i think pioneer might have discontinued them but if you can find them they are sweet headunits

go with a pioneer AVIC double din. I love mine, customizable screen and change colors to whatever you want. i agree with caliranger10.

i also find that pioneer head units are much more straight forward and user friendly...but my feelings are tainted towards alpine i really dont like them...go double din
