Well after 10 years i decided to have the original Becker radio re-installed in my 190E. Went to saddle Brook,NJ about a 1.5 hour drive to these guys, Becker Autosound, LLC / 170 North Fifth Street / Saddle Brook, NJ 07663

Did a great job also rebuilt my antenna.

Wow Becker still has a presence in the US? I remember them there from when I lived in Park Ridge 10 years ago. Do they sell or only service head units?

They also sell units. New units with CD changers, they can also add an attachment for your Iphone, or other mp3 player.

The main question is..how much? For originality Becker is cool, but for sound there are lots of better after market systems that cost wayyyy less than what they would charge. That sounds a lot better too.

Aux-In I think he told me $100 to add in. You can call 201-773-0976 ask for Ed for all the details.

Hey - I just had my Becker pulled and put something else in. I might consider selling it. I have the speakers too.

I always felt that in this modern age of car audio, the Becker was pretty weak. The combined output was 25Wx2 which is pretty low by today's standards. So I yanked all of the stock stuff out and went completely aftermarket and now I'm satisfied. Unless you're going for the complete original look, aftermarket is always going to sound better as long as you get good name brand.
