    Period car audio really makes an interior. From vintage Blaupunkt and Becker to retro Alpine kit, I love it all.

    Sadly my CX has been hacked about to fit larger speakers etc, so I decided to go the other way and modernise it with a custom iphone mount which is great for music/navigation/charging. Just want to find a nicer looking head`unit with full ipod control/30 pin connector now.

    I used to really like the look of a vintage unit in a vintage car vs. the modern digital stuff, but I find I kind of lean towards no radio and an uncut dash these days. I think the 105/115 Alfa GTV dash looks especially good with uncut veneer and unhacked door cards/parcel shelf.

    But where can the Blaupunkts be repaired? I have several but FM does not work. And finding US Frankfurts with 108 FM scale and Stereo is much harder. Any advice? Thank you.

    The important point here being such input capabilities are native to many Becker & Blaupunkt radio of the period - simply check rear panel for DIN socket. Which makes for even easier installation... The radios can be purchased independently, and the DIN to MP3 input cable / adapters equally easy to source for ten dollars or so, or self-made if so inclined... The Benz fascia versions being particularly attractive! Neko.

    I collect various generations of Blaupunkt Berlin and its accesories plus Canton Pullman speakers because I think those two are the period correct brands for 80s euro cars.
