Looking for my first BMX

hey guys, im a mountainbiker, but im looking for a cheap BMX so i can practise tricks on, my mate and I are looking at spending 150 roughly, i realise that bike arent cheap, so im looking 2nd hand, can anybody suggest brand names i should be looking for, i know 3 pc cranks are the best, but what are the main companies? I was looking at Haros and they look very nice.

Im not sure what type of riding im planning on doing, probably street, park, bowls, dirt, a bit of everything really... Im 175lbs and 5'8 if that matters at all..

I like my DK 24" cruiser, but you might want a 20" bike. DK makes some pretty good stuff for about that much... mine was used, and it was $190 USD.

I have a Haro cruiser, but it's too big for tricks. I'm guessing the offerings are pretty slim there too, at least compared to the states. If you've got DK there, they have some pretty good stuff. Norco sold out here by March.
