Shopping for a new head unit

Folks, my crappy little replacement audio replacement unit (single DIN) is buzzing when I go over bumps and I really want to replace it. However, I'm having a hard time finding what I want:

- Single DIN
- Bluetooth enabled to pick up music from my iphone wirelessly
- Multimedia player (no CD needed)
- I want to be able to change the colors of the buttons and display to match my gauge faces.
- HD radio ready

The best I've found thus far has all of the above sans the HD radio, which I'd really like if I can get it:

Amazon.com: JVC Bluetooth In-Dash Digital Media Receiver with Dual USB Ports: Car Electronics

BTW, I have no interest in tinny, compressed satellite radio. I do not find the quality of the sound worth paying for, and the better the sound system, the worse it sounds.

Post links to units that fit the bill above if you know of any!

Hey, thanks for the link! It's exactly what I need -- changeable colors so I can match the amber, no CD, and I don't need HD radio. Can't help you with other options that allow for the Amber color buttons and display -- I haven't found any. But things change every week.
