I own a 2003 WRX Sedan, and looking to upgrade to a Double-DIN receiver.
* iPod Hookup
* Not looking for a DVD Player
* CD Player would be nice, but not necessary
* Budget $300
* Not looking for a pinball flashy unit
Many decks have an Aux Input jack - many of which are now mini connections on the front (they used to be RCA in the back, so you'd have to run your wire out).
I got a JVC KD-G510 for this reason (mini jack on the front). Bought a $5 3' mini-mini cable from Radio Shack, and a $10 (shipped) iPod DC car charger from eBay. All-in-all, it cost me ~$200 for the H/U, harness, double-din plate, accessories.
The only downside was the face said "Aux In" rather than giving the artist/title. But, that wasn't something I needed anyway.
That would be my advice. Then begin saving for better speakers (a sub/amp would do less for the sound quality, and would weigh you down)
