      It's nice. But a little too new. Honestly, rather then fighting it, the best deck in an e30 is an old school Alpine.

          I have and always loved the Clarion FZ102E forE30-E36, but that Honda looks great!

            i'd prob try some rubbing compound or paint thinner/nail polish remover to remove that Honda badge. Should come off easily....looks killer otherwise.

              That Honda radio looks shockingly good. Just gotta get that Honda logo off there and it's perfect.

              Anyway, I was actually just looking into the subject last night. I don't know if it's been mentioned in this thread yet, but the Clarion M508 is also an excellent contender IMO. I first came across it thanks to Matt Farah, who put one in his 911. Looks great. Probably what I'll go with. The only downside is that it comes with a bright ass white display and buttons, but if you search on here, earthwormjim has been able to change the colors to match the OEM red lighting.

              Here it is installed in shootnjunky's E30:

                Ditto - but nail polish remover is acetone. And it makes a mess of ABS. It melts it.

                  I know it's been shown before, but the Continental headunit with the updated LED's by earthwormjim is awesome, couldn't be happier with it. I finally had a chance to take some pics of it at night to compare it to the remainder of the OEM backlights, it matches perfectly:

                  Looks a little bright in this pic, it's not as bad in real life:



                  This pic shows how it blends in a little better in terms of brightness/color:
