RE: Original radios

Hello,

I have a 1979 Mercedes 280CE W123 chassis, that would like a nice Becker AM/FM radio and cassette. A new radio cassette was installed by someone else and it has very poor sound quality.

What models should I look for that would fit, and be fairly close to orginal equipment? Is it the Mexico? If so, where would I find a Mexico Radio / Cassette?

Also my 1978 280E is having radio problems, it could be the radio or the speakers are original, so maybe they're part of the problems. Is it easier to repair or replace the original becker radio. The sound volume always comes on loud and I have to push pull or jerk the volume control to get it to work properly.

John

Yes, the Becker Mexico would be the original unit. We could supply you with a good used one, or you can contact Becker (http://www.beckerautosound.com/) to find a local dealer who can provide you with a refurbished unit and possibly repair your other one.

Hey Chuck -- I gotta ask -- do you really have a functioning Yugo?

Seriously Chuck, do you own that Yugo

After reading the mods I thought this was an obvious joke, but after reading a little of your argument with jdc in the Maybach forum, I'm not sure if your'e some rich guy who did it for a laugh.

Please tell us which one it is so I can stop imagining the world's craziest Yugo, or I can take my hat off to you in respect.
