VW Golf MK4 Audio Upgrade Options

I have bought myself a 2001 MK4 VW Golf GTi with the Gamma CD/Radio/Cassette Deck and would like to upgrade, but am on a budget of £200-£300 as I only plan to have the car 12-18 months. Currently the car has the original front speakers and some 6x9’s in the parcel shelf, although I think one may be bust (or the Head Unit is). I would also like to keep it OEM looking as possible, so am thinking:

Option 1

2/4 Channel Amplifier
In-phase SXT6.1c Custom Speaker Kit (fronts)
Juice A8 8” Active Sub-Woofer

Option 2

Pioneer PSH-DA02 HU (doesn’t bother me it’s an old model)
In-phase Custom Speaker Kit (fronts)
Juice A8 8” Active Sub-Woofer

Option 1 keeps it OEM and will improve the sound I guess, however I am thinking the Head Unit (HU) is a limiting factor in this set-up? I also like the idea of full iPod Control and Bluetooth phone connection so Option 2 appeals, but I couldn’t afford an Amp as well so would have to hope the replacement HU is up to the job. But I am sure even without an Amp it will be a huge improvement over what I have?

Need to keep it simple as will do the installation myself.

Any thoughts or recommendations welcomed
