    Check the JVC 926 BT, it's awesome value for money and has most of the features you're looking for.

    I am zeroing in to either of below 2 -
    JVC 926 BT
    Kenwood - KDC-X8016BT

    Now the question is the current HU is attached to the front plastic, does that need to be replaced or can be cut to fit the new HU?

    Is it Fiat part, or outside part?
    Means do I need to buy from TASC?

    It's Fiat part and called Fascia plate or dummy at service centres. The part number is somewhere mentioned in JVC 926 thread. You get two colours, one matching Linea and another one in different color. None matches the emotion Silver trim though.

    If you want good amount of bass and treble Pioneer/Kenwood will be good.
    If you are going HU with AMP setup you can go for JVC it will suite well.

    The Punto Fascia is priced around 100 bucks and can be purchased over the counter from Fiat/TATA ASS. You actually need to remove the OEM HU and the metal cover that holds the OEM HU. the Fascia is a perfect fit to the area and can be painted for 100 bucks outside. It holds the AfterMarket HU nicely. All you have to ask is the centre part of center console for old Active model (before 2012).

    I had one but i gave it to one of the TFI member who changed his stock HU.
