    remote is handy for when your sat in the back of the car LOL.

    looks a great stereo and for rock bottom price, where are you getting it from? alpine is the best head units to get. only thing i would say is mp3 in the car is a well cool thing to have. you can get a sony cd/mp3 head unit for 140, sound quality is smart but alpine would be better, but you wont tell much sound quality difference if its not amped anyway.

    Sony Xplod XM-754SX 4-channel amp, it is 4 x 100W RMS IIRC. it was 150. sound quality and bass is fantastic.
