The answer cannot be "neither" I'm looking to purchase one of the two within the week. I see some pro's and con's of each, and y'all can feel free to add to them: -stereo pro - i love music, i make my own music. con - the factory system sounds pretty good, but definitely not aftermarket though. pro - it's something i've wanted to spend dough on since i was younger and couldn't afford it. con - it becomes a target for theft con - police hate sound systems -rims pro - my car is black body, tinted windows, spoiler, sunroof.....nothing would set it off better than a shiny set of chrome wheels con- changing them seasonally pro - it would change my car from another accord, to GT's ACCORD con - it becomes a target for theft con - it becomes a target for police Thanks in advance!!
