you still havent told me what size youre looking for. A guy on here is selling a brand new pair of 15mm w. bolts for $100 right now, but that would be crap if youre looking for 20 or 25s.

A lot of head units offer switchable colors, I have an old kenwood in my e30 that you can adjust to a stockish looking orange/red. I doubt they are that hard to find.

Is it standard DIN? If so, Nakamichi CD400 or CD500.

Ah, I forgot about how BMWs have red lights in the interior. For red only the Nak CD500 can do it. The Nak CD400 can do amber (which I can take a picture of is somebody wants).

The problem with that Alpine is it might look good at night but it looks like crap during the day.

Oh, so same as my bro's e39? Then I think the Nak CD400 might be a color match. It's what I have in my car if someone is too afraid of biting the bullet without seeing it first.

<$300 new. I might be able to be convinced to sell my CD400 (thinking about replacing it with a CD500, trying to remember if there was a reason other than money that I went with the 400 in the first place).

You get what you pay for. Me, I rather have a factory cassette player than one of those ugly Alpines in my dash.
