I have had my MB-75 installed for about a year now. It fits in perfectly. I have actually had one with a green facia and now one with an amber display installed and they both fit in fine although the amber one is more to the traditional fit of course.
When I ordered it I also thought that the main facia colour wouldn't match as it is not an absolute black colour but it actually matches better than if it was black.
I used to have the original deck installed with the Alpine changer in the back. IT's great not having the changer wasting space in the back and it's also great being able to load/change discs from the drivers seat.
I installed the DAC/control unit under the carpet in the passenger footwell. There is absolutely no way that you would know it was there.
I have not had any mechanical problems with it. The only real issue I've had is that it will not play some of my discs for some reason. It will play CDRs though even though it says it doesn't in the manual.
The sound quality is great, I don't have to compromise sound quality whilst in the car. I have to say it is not as good as my Krell stuff at home but it is pretty damn good for a fairly standard setup. I am only running 1 10 inch Kicker Solobaric sub, 2 PPI Art amps and 6.5 inch Diamond Audio splits in the front. That's it.
The changer mechanism works pretty well. It is a little clunky though when changing discs.
I would definitely recommend buying one. you'll never regret it. It will be no use to you of course if you like flashing lights and heaps of features that are not necessary to get good sound though.

Good Luck


Does it look good in the car? Nervous the not use OEM Alpine as it looks so good in the car now. or does anyone have a changer to sell for my year e34?
