Wal-mart has an in-dash car CD player for sale (~$150, I believe), that is advertised to also play MP3s from CDR.

Pretty inexpensive(!), and it seems pretty cool, if it works as promised. My question - does anyone here own one of these type of units? Any positive / negative experiences with them? Any glaring limitations (VBR, bitrate, replaygain, ID3 tags, lowpass, etc.)? Should I go up to the next price range if I want a 'good' car MP3 player?

FWIW, my car stereo isn't some great boomy system - but an inexpensive way to store 7+ albums on one disc and take them on the road with me would be pretty nifty.
