It has rear aux input, plays mp3s, subwoofer output control on the face, rotary volume knob(I hate buttons for volume), and it can illuminate in different colors. My old cars dashlights were amber and the WRX is green so really no matter what car you've car, you can make it match.

    I looked into this one a little and I also looked at the next model up: the Clarion DXZ835MP. I noticed that it's got 4 channels: 2-front and 2-rear.

    My WRX came with the optional subwoofer under the passenger seat... Would I need something with a separate channel for that to work, or does it just tie-in to the rear channel?

    I vote Blaupunkt MP3000.

    I've owned (2) of these now in seperate cars, and for the budget-minded, it's got a ton of great features!

    CD-R, CD-RW, CD, WMA, MP3 (variable and constant bit rate)

    I've never had skipping problems that were a fault of the MP3000, most were my own computer burning errors. A great deck, you can pick it up for only $118.00 here:

    The WRX sub has a proprietary wiring harness. Without a hack job, it will not work with anything but your stock deck. If you figured out which wires were which, you may be able to do a hack job and get the sub to work with an aftermarket deck. I think I've stumbled across the wiring diagram before, but I never paid attention.

    Basslink is nice. Good bass, clean install, smallish, light, good price. I however, am going for BIG BASS, IE 600 watts RMS. Also costs big $$$. If you want most of your trunk- basslink = good.
