As the title says guys i am after recommendation, Suggestions etc as to which stereo fit my R53 Cooper S.

I currently got a sony xplod version that i am very happy with but looking to upgrade to one when i can intergrate my ipod. My fm transmitter broke the other week & not that great so saving up to get a new stereo.

I have been looking around at Hlafords & on ebay & think i have narrowed it down to the two below

Pioneer DEH-50UB CD Player from Halfords Was £149.99 Save £20.00 Price £129.99 Half price store fitting ONLY £19.99

or
JVC-KD-PDR61 USB/CD Player from Halfords Price £149.99 Half price store fitting ONLY £19.99

The pioneer been my 1st choice

Just wondering if anyone has either in there mini & can give me a bit more info on how good the sound quality is , ease of use,will it fit etc

I am really happy with the sound quality of my sony its just i want the ipod connectivity

Thanks guys

If you're happy with the OEM stereo and just want the iPod connection, check out newministuff.

Theres iPod connections that will work with the standard stereo.

EDIT: just read you've got a Sony. You could try find an iPodadaptor for the stereo you have

Another good one is the kenwood 8141 we got our first batch on friday & have more due this week NewMINIStuff.com
It has usb - you can plug your standard ipod cable into it & get full fast control & see all the info on the 3 line display. The right hand knob acts as a clickwheel.
It also has bluetooth built in so you are also getting a hands free kit.
Our prices include a fitting kit - if you dont need this (use the one from your sony) we can come down on price.
If you dont want the bluetooth factility then we have versions without bluetooth - one of them has variable colour illumination
