: For all you audiophiles out there who isn't into competitions and won't spend $800 on a head unit, here's a great head unit for you. I picked up the latest issue of Car Audio and Electronics which gave a brief review of the NEW Blaupunkt Alaska and thought this would be perfect for my new e46. It's ALL digital after it get's mixed down from the antenna into IF. (40Wx4) It looks good and one of the main reasons I'm looking only into Blaupunkt is because that's the only unit which matches closest to BMW's dash color. It's MSRP is $370. Check it out, I hope to get it installed some time in a few months.
You can get the Alaska from continentalimports.com
in Florida for $309.94. I bought a Blaupunkt Toronto for my 98 Z3 from them.I also got a wiring harness for my car and installed it myself in about 30 minutes.Much better sound than the stock Alpine unit from factory.I bought the Toronto because it's variocolor feature matches the amber lights in my BMW.
