Thumbs down Double Din Recommendations Needed

Hey Guys,

Needed some help on a Audio system for my car.

I have just bought a new Polo 1.2 Diesel Highline, and am looking to replace the factory music system as it is wayyyyy to weak!

I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for any particular systems & speakers which satisfy the following criteria :

a) Awesome Sound (I love my music to sound the 'alive'!)
b) Have an Aux/USB input which supports my Iphone4/Ipod Touch
c) Built-in Bluetooth for connection my mobile phone as I make a lot of phone calls while driving.
d) All of the above within a budget of 30K?

Look forward to hearing from you'll!

Thanks!

Alpine, Pioneer and Kenwood have units with inbuilt GPS. See the Alpine W900, Kenwood 7160 or Pioneer Z120.

There is also a Windows based AHU with built in GPS and touch screen from Blaupunkt. If you are looking for a cheaper option, settle for Pioneer with JBL speakers.

Question

Thanks Guys!

I think Im gonna end up with the Pioneer AVH-P3200BT HU.

Any speaker suggestions for the Polo Highline?

Also, since this HU is not available officially in India, any recommended dealers / installers in South Mumbai??

@saniljshah, speaker recommendations are not based on the car. One recommends based on a. the type of sound one likes and b. budget. Beyond recommendation, do make it a point to audition the recommendations and decide based on whether you like the sound signature or not.

@ DerAlte

Sorry, I probably did not word my question well enough. I understand what you're saying.

However, I had specifically mentioned my car model, as I am not to sure what speakers will fit into the existing built in slots, which will be vacant once i remove the standard speakers fitted in by VW.

If someone has already upgraded the speakers in their Polo, I would love to hear about the same.
