I have searched the forums and didn't find much. Iam looking for opinion/pics on a head unit that matches the red lighting in our cars. Looking for a cheap cd player to hold me over (working on a carputer project) So I dont want to spend a lot. Will prob see if i can get a used one. Pics would be great if anyone has any.

only ones i can think of are about the cheapest player you can get... Dual has a red face, and pyramid..

both are very low quality though.

My Sony matches well...Pictures don't do justice, so I'll just link you...PM me if you want pictures, but I can assure you it matches VERY well (Sole reason I got it)

I have a 97 a4, i took out the whole console and replaced the bracket that holds the stereo made a custom look to the HVAC and then popped in the symhony radio. Looks new and no one else has it

Alot of work for a stock radio.... Props for pulling it off tho.

I got a Blaupunkt Alcapulco MP54 deck that matches well, save for the "blue dot" on/mute button and the ok button on the other side. I also wish it was reverse polarity display like the other LCDs in the car.
