    Ok it's the official Show your Radio thread. Anything goes! If you love listening to music and have a single DIN - post up? If you have an old post radio, tape deck, etc. Post up. I'd love to see some old Beckers or anything with a fancy backing plate.

    I was gifted a Blaupunkt Frankfurt. I wasn't planning on running a radio until I received it. There is no point in me installing it in my project car since it will just come out anyway. So as of now it lives in the cupboard above my work bench. I'd like to swap it out eventually for a euro frequency version.

    Installed by the dealer, original Becker Europa Stereo (I put on the BMW/Blaupunkt knobs to match), Becker cassette player in glove box, kick panel and rear parcel shelf speakers (Becker fader installed by Hazard switch).

    No radio present upon delivery from the "barn" my car came from. Only the Becker Grand Prix amplifier bracket mounted to the firewall under the dash. :(

    Keep it going let's see some tape decks! :D @aearch has a tape deck in his to play all of his old dead shows I believe.

    I love old Alpina tape decks with the six green buttons. I had one in my Volvo 240 and it sounded awesome.

    1984 Alpine 7165 - I think it is significantly easier to find a Blaupunkt Frankfurt...

    Ha ha - when I was a young(er) man, that Alpine model with the six green buttons was the holy grail. :cool: I coveted it...

    From the CSi that I sold, which was in my 2800. Pioneer. Worked great!

    Sorry Markos, just another Frankfurt.

    When I bought the car, the P.O. had installed a large Jenson radio with cassette player. He wanted to keep it and install it in the City Pack CSL he just bought so he gave me his unmolested face plate. At the time I didn’t realize how fortunate I was.

    Wow that is nice! That is the radio face that I am ultimately after to go with my euro cluster, and German heater controls. When I deigned my aux gauges, I specifically removed the out-of-the-box english text and added VDO style symbols. I didn't want to disrupt the German flow. :D

    If your face plate is torn up, you still have some options if you find a radio with a nice front trim plate. I wonder if the radio that @teahead posted is a single DIN. What is frustrating about all the torn up face plates is that the post alignment is adjustable on most of the old radios.

    Yes, very nice Chris.
    I really like the eyebrows on the gauges.

    Doug,

    On your face plate it looks like you have a rubber piece between it and shift platform, is that correct? That would be an e3 piece, I’ve never seen one on an e9.

    It’s part of the shift platform covered in the same black vinyl. It’s always been there ( maybe a euro thing?)

    Maybe unique to automatics as the platform isn’t as high, and on the e3 the platform sits lower and this rubber piece is attached to the faceplate. My e9 does not have this.
