      That looks pretty good! I'd paint the knob though.

          This guy appears to ship to the U.S.

          And this thread is worth the 2 minutes it takes to read it.

          There are also comments about this radio on various German forums. I haven't reviewed them yet, and besides, Google Translate still isn't perfect. I dropped this here in hopes that someone here has an informed opinion on this unit, especially with regard to performance, reliability, and ease of connection to an E30. To me, it looks perfect for an E30. If its performance is competitive with the usual big box store suspects, I'd pay the small premium for it.

              Would one want to get the ISO adapter? Very tempting.

                I wanted a good radio with amber lighting and Bluetooth and picked up a Sony Mex-n5000bt. I just hooked it up and like it I need to adjust the brightness of it and only set the amber color. But looks good next to the 13 button LED obc. Only one remote wire though and I may have connected the wrong wire for the dimmer. Picture is a little blurry but will edit or add another picture when I am done installing the system.

                  Well this is what i have decided upon. Yet to install but for half price at a sale and with illumination that is "close" to factory and options i will use i am quite happy.

                  Will post a picture once fitted.

                    I run a JVC x50bt. Super simple head unit with only USB and aux, but also contains great features like Bluetooth and bt audio, sub outs and some useless 9band digital eq. Looks great and allows full color control. About 25 colors, including OUR AMBER COLOR. I've seen a lot o eadubitsbwith the amber lights on this thread, but the amber in our cars is darker then others I have seen. Almost a red.

                        On looks, I completely agree, I just wish it had 3 sets of preamp outputs!

                        I have a question for you though. If you are playing a CD, if you eject the disc, does the radio come on every time?

                        Closing SOON!

                          Hi man.. It doesn't have cd player. Just radio and usb port.
                          Yes, I agree on that too! It comes with no preamp outputs at all 😩.
                          But it sounds better than my oem radio that came on my 92 cabrio.

                            Yeah, deal-breaker.
