    Fully refurbished OEM BMW Alpine CM5907 and CM5908 slider radios, Trunk Amps

    *PLEASE* DO NOT PM ME. I WON'T SEE YOUR MESSAGE
    I love r3v but the last upgrade has really hurt the website.
    The messaging system is particularly terrible now.
    I DO NOT READ OR RESPOND TO PM ANYMORE
    you can always reach me fastest at bradnic at oemhifi.com
    fb.me/oemhifi works as well but I check that about once a week.

    APR 2021 OFFERING REFURBISHED BLAUPUNKT TRUNK AMPS
    I currently have 9 refurbished OEM power amps available. I replace all major caps, all of the internal amp to connector board wires which fail due to brittle insulation, and power transistors when needed.

    All major caps replaced with OEM grade parts
    All power amp ICs tested and replaced where needed with the exact same automotive grade components
    All wires between the main and connector boards are replaced. The insulation on the original wires turns hard and is extremely fragile.

    Price is $175 WITH CORE. I only accept orders I can fill from stock. The core unit must be unmodified and corrosion free.
    2 year no BS warranty.

    NOTE ON TRUNK AMP MOUNTING HARDWARE: I *do not* include the mounting hardware for the trunk amp unless your core includes it. The trunk amp mounting bracket is NLA, so either strip it off your core amp and keep it, or send it to me and I will transfer it to your new refurbed amp for you.




    MAR 2021 BOARD UPDATE, CONTACT & WAITLIST INFO
    I am planning a production run of 50 boards. They won't be available for a few months though. If you have emailed me or posted on this thread I have your info. Once I am sure they are ready I will start contacting each of you. Price will be exactly what Jay charged.

    Those of you still reaching out, PLEASE DO NOT PM. I love R3V but the PMs are pretty useless to me with the new system. reach out via fb.me/oemhifi or bradnic at oemhifi.com. You probably will NOT hear from me for a bit. DON'T WORRY.

    REMEMBER. this is not a business for me.. at all.

    RADIO SERVICE REFERRALS
    (ONE I'VE PERSONALLY INSPECTED THE WORK OF; THE OTHER I HAVE NOT)

    Since I don't have time for repairs right now, for those looking for a radio repair shop whose work I have seen, try

    Doctor Dons
    Huntsville, Texas
    (936) 435-1811.
    doctordons.com

    He charged one of my customers $350. I inspected the work and it is OEM quality.

    I receive absolutely nothing in return for this recommendation.
    In fact he hates the BT board with a passion, yelled at my customer for destroying his work with a BT abomination, hung up on them, and then after I called him to straighten him out on the BT stuff, he was a bit of a ______ over the phone and hung up on me too. But the dude knows what he is doing.

    The other recommendation I can PASS ALONG WITH NO PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF THEIR WORK is Radio Man out of San Diego. Multiple customers have worked with them and had good feedback.

    JUNE 2021 Customer Quote: I had my CM5908 radio fixed by ‘Radioman’ about which I learned in one of your posts – and it went very well (no relationship to him but if you ever have people need in fixing theirs)
    They seem to charge about $250 to repair a cassette radio. I cannot say whether the repairs are OEM quality or not.

    Radio Man Repair
    http://radiomanrepair.com/#BWM%20Automotive%20Systems
    Again, I receive absolutely nothing in return for this recommendation.


    FEB 2021 LIMITED TIME AND CAPACITY, SERVICE REFERRALS, NEW BT BOARD PRODUCTION
    I’m still around, but a lot going on. I have all the posted and emailed requests queued. Unfortunately I have very limited time to work this stuff right now.

    Folks that have a 5907 or 5908 and just want to get them repaired should look for professional shops. There are two I can recommend.. you can reach me per contact info later in this post. Expect to be $350 or so for the repair work.

    regarding Jay’s Canteloupe BT boards, I will be getting a new batch produced. I will let the folks that have contacted me know when they are available.

    if someone qualified is interested in helping out with demand, reach out. Those who have dealt with me know this is a labor of love, not a business. If you’d rather not wait and want your work done professionally, see above regarding repairs. I will only recommend work I have personally inspected.

    thanks

    JUN 2020 UPDATE - FACEBOOK, SOURCING MORE BT BOARDS, REFURB INVENTORY & WAITLIST
    I have detested Facebook for years, but I am back on there now because of this thread.
    you can reach me at fb.me/oemhifi and always at bradnic at oemhifi.com

    I've relocated to NC and switched primary job to NY since my last update. Things are starting to settle now so I can spend more time on this side gig / passion project.

    1) Those of you that have continued posting all this time, I have kept track and will capture a public wait list based on when you updated the thread. Please note there are about 15 other offline contacts on this list as well

    2) I should have my work bench and test equipment back up and running after July 4, at which time I have 3 remaining radios to service. ..

    3) I still have a limited number of boards, but most of those are reserved for support purposes (warranty replacements, repairs)

    and I have been discussing BT board sourcing and I hope to have some news there soon.

    4) Goal is to have a pool of refurb radios available later this summer. I will contact each waiting list member in order an give them the option to swap their existing radio for a refurbed, BT ready unit.



    OCT 2019 UPDATE - WILL BE OFFERING EXCHANGE & CORE PURCHASE ONLY, NO TAPE
    I have a few remaining radios in backlog, but they should be cleared out by end October. As explained in post 48 I will be limiting the work I accept going forward, as follows:

    1) I no longer accept individual radios for repair, only exchange, and only if I have a repaired unit available. If your radio has better cosmetics than the repaired unit I will transfer those parts to the repaired unit.

    2) I will continue to accept cores for purchase.

    3) i am focusing on BT units only.

    4) Prices will go up unfortunately. It is what it is

    5) I will post some self-service repair guides later in 2019.


    This should address delays and order cancellations experienced summer 2019 while I went through a move and major day job transition.


    JUL 2019 UPDATE - NEW ORDERS ON HOLD
    Not so good news: Due to backlog and pricing issues, I have stopped accepting new work. All existing work will be honored as agreed to.

    I've been pretty clear that I do this for the karma. Well... not so good on the karma front right now. I have setup a second bench in my other work location so I can work evenings during the week. Once the backlog clears out I will be rethinking approach, especially pricing.


    If you're looking for a refurbished and upgraded 5908 contact Levent at GutenParts. He has some limited inventory available.
    If you absolutely want your radio done please reach out via PM or bradnic at oemhifi.com. Expect at least a two month delay though, and revised pricing.




    ALL EXCHANGE RADIOS INCLUDE A 120 DAY NO BS WARRANTY
    No BS is exactly what you think it is. I do this for fun and great karma. That means you need to be satisfied or I'm not satisfied.

    - radio code included of course
    - clean front faceplate
    - power amp board fully rebuilt with all electrolytic caps replaced and traces repaired
    - all bulbs intact - looks terrific at night
    - no noise from volume control
    - all buttons work and light up properly
    - all external wiring completely intact
    - reproduction external label on bottom
    - two reproduction radio code cards included (laminated for now, will replace with plastic cards once I have them in stock).

    Recent delivery going through final testing


    current reproduction radio code cards, before laminating (these are delivered laminated)


    cantaloupe ready radio, fully refurbished


    tape deck brackets (included with the cantaloupe ready option). pics also show where they go on the latest cantaloupe board

          Thanks @oldcitybimmer!

          To clarify - and not to p&ss off jaysterling - I resold my personal 1st gen production board to him, a late 2017 version without the aux in. I also have a pre-production prototype that I will not ever sell.

          You need to purchase your cantaloupe boards through cantalouperadio.com or an authorized reseller like Levent / Gutenparts. I'll talk to Jay about an option for you to have them shipped to me directly.

          UPDATE (APR 2019): I CAN NOW SELL YOU CANTALOUPE BOARDS AND ACCESSORIES IF YOU ORDER THE REFURB SERVICE FOR YOUR RADIO (thanks jaysterling!)

          UPDATE 2 (MAR 2021): THIS OPTION IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE AS JAY IS NOT PRODUCING THESE BOARDS ANYMORE. IF YOU HAVE ANY ISSUE WITH A CANTALOUPE BOARD PLEASE REACH OUT TO ME AS I HAVE SOME WARRANTY STOCK AVAILABLE.

                      All I have increased prices for the tape deck version. Those of you that contacted me before no worries I will honor the original posted price.

                      It's just too much work to restore the rollers, clean the head, find clean reliable tape mechanisms that won't eat your tapes after a month, won't warble like crazy, won't autoreverse on you, don't fully function with scan, ff, rew etc. etc..

                        Restored with the tape deck. she works beautifully. Rush on the cassette lol.

                        1st pic was before final assembly - ALL screws present on delivered unit.


                        Note quality of the faceplate. That took an hour of work, swapped bits.
