As to the similiarity between DeQ's setup and mine, I must give credit where it is due. I was inspired by his design.
Blaupunkt Frankfurt with 7 pin aux cable to Bluetooth iLive receiver in the glove box. Radio & mounting bracket purchased from Simufly on the forum back in 2011.
I think most of y’all have seen these... I’m hoping to put them in the 2000CS. I’m not sure the shortwave will fit in the space; we’ll see.
Ed that is one handsome radio!
I stumbled across a Blaupunkt Karlsruhe from 1975. It must have been ahead of its time because that blue grid just screams 80's to me. I really want it but it would serve me no purpose. Would look fantastic in a blue e21!
Thanks, M... I can't remember the manufacture date but it's close to my '67. Those are certainly the early BMW knobs, though (which I need to clean up a bit)
Not mine, but I want to find THIS radio bezel (I think it completes the look, adds some bling/fancy):
That bezel is perfect for a hacked up AC face also as it gets right to the edge of the face plate.
I installed this Blaupunkt (with Becker knobs) in the CSi.
Chris -- I had one of those in my car as well -- A 72 US spec auto with a/c. Its actually a piece of wood that looks like a piece of 1/2 x 1/2 cove molding covered with vinyl.
I don't really understand why manufacturers had short wave in car radios. Even in the 70s short was wave very passé. The circuitry required stopped the expansion quality reception of the fm signal. Mind you the quality of the broadcast signal (in the UK anyway) was always a bit iffy. Dont start me on signal compression.

In addition to the radio, what a beautiful shift knob.
