    hi

    i have a panasonic head unit thats served me well, but it's randomly pausing for ages when playing discs and the radio reception has deteriorated.

    i have a £100 budget for a good head to replace, must play MP3 discs but a usb slot would be a bonus to.

    what are good brands and units to go for?

    i have a mondeo so would assume that i can easily pull one out and put one in. i'm no expert!

    The gt616 is the newer model but the sound quality is not as good, one thing to remember with sony they have made a massive loss this year, they are making car audio cheaper in cost and quality but charge the same money, so buying the older model will buy you a better sounding unit that will last longer.
