As we all know the manufactures won't put the best headunit in our vehicles but they still include something good enough to meet the needs of the general public.

Are you pleased with the factory headunit on the Elantra Coupe? Are you going to upgrade to an aftermarket headunit? Reason for the upgrade?

The problem nowadays is that so much is built into the headunit already; ipod, bluetooth, steering wheel controls, etc there isn't a whole lot of reason to put in something different except maybe more control or Navigation/Backup camera

Very true, these days most factory headunits have all the functions needed, many of which you stated. At least the majority of Elantra owners will be pleased with the headunit without reason for an upgrade.

But of course, if you want the best navigation system, memory card ports, etc.... an upgrade is needed!

My only problem with changing the factory head unit is the look. I want something that is aesthetically pleasing and doesn't look I went to Best Buy and picked something out from the wall. I also don't want to lose the use of my steering wheel buttons.

I have seen some double din head units that look very "stealthy". Big screen and no big knobs or buttons that stick out like a sore thumb. The buttons are small but stealthy-looking..... and doesn't look like the head units you find at best buy!

try checking some car audio/video shops, they would have a better range of HU's to choose from.
