performance should not be an issue. alost all cars have a nominal 12V power supply.

considering your components while the Pio Hu is ok I would guess there are better speakers than Pioneer. I would suggest you invesigate other brands as well.

lastly dont expect any warranty support from your local dealer should anything go wrong. Pioneer has a lot of authorised service centers in India (atleast in Mumbai) and these will offer you service but will charge you just as they would for any grey market pioneers sold here.

Prem... Like Navin said... imported = no warranty..

Secondly you will get the same thing in India at rates cheaper that der Nederlanden!

In fact I find the rated of HU's in India cheaper than Singapore/Dubai!

I think i would import only 2 things from the netherlands. Women and marijuana. I do believe Pioneer would be cheaper in India.

PANKY BABA... OT = ...

Yup I agree... ICE is cheaper in the US.. Second is SE Asia... then Middle East..however the ICE scene in the MIddle East is pathetic - not evolved at all... Europe is horribly expensive for everything!... cheaper to drink beer than water!!
