You don't like the Gamma 3 or the cd input??? 

Me, CD in or not, I like that it matches the dimples from the dash switches. But that's just me. Oh and Keyo, I value extremely your point of views. I don't want to win, just exchange with mates that have way more knowledge than I have. Cheers! 

To be honest, it's just to fill the hole and look age appreciate. I never listen to music when the best simphony comes from the VR!

Your getting it wrong chap Im saying yes to Gamma 3 I like it - the picture above is a very rare version of Gamma 3. its  with a CD input to right bottom of it-  so I set you a challenge see if you can find one.  English slang when you say OK you win means Ok agree with you. 

Don't worry about Shaun he wears one yellow sock and one green . 🙂

Sorry, the first lines were for Shaun! 

And yes the rest was for you Keyo! Well I'm glad you like it as well. I'll do some search around and keep you posted. I would not mind having that cd in but I won't pay double just for it... Cheers!

Im actually on the hunt myself for Gamma 3 for my Mk2 golf as its 91 model- I know for a fact that Gamma 3 came on USA Corrado in till about 93 so is correct factory unit but after Gamma 4 .  Gamma 3 tend to be double the price as gamma 4 as rarer because I suppose older and less for sale.

So that confirms my thoughts, late spec Corrado had the newer Gamma 4 but I really like the fit of the Gamma 3, just not 100% period correct but I can live with it I think! I'll let you know what I find!

Cool mate Gamma 3 cost around £200 in Europe so im still waiting for a bargain Gamma 3  or perhaps still the modern Blaupunkt Bremen. Gamma 4 around £100 on Europe.

Bremen is what I wanted originally but after reading the newer reviews I'm kind of hesitant. If it was half the cost I would be down even after reading those but not at a premium cost. 

https://www.amazon.com/BLAUPUNKT-Bremen-SQR-46-DAB/dp/B07XVMBKW4

Also back in the days with my MK2 16V, I went all in with blaupunkt, well I got nothing but frustrations. Problems with the sub, the speakers, the radio, the amp. 16 years ago I told myself never again... Back in the days they were telling me, you have to go with their top quality or you run into problems... Yeah, it was pretty pricey already enough and I didn't like being told that. That shop were the only ones carrying it and they don't anymore... 

I mean Walmart is pretty much the only one who sells blaupunkt here now and that is not a compliment... And the fact it was transferred to the Chinese I think in 2015 is a "deterrent" to me as well. 

That said I like it a lot but with the cost and the newer reviews I'm out... 

I've been thinking of the original SQR45 instead which is German and green illumination but rare and old and pricey too.

Yes I like the original;  Bremenl unit think it was used in Porsche and Merc. Becker use to be a good brand as well - was it called the Becker Mexico. was pretty much NO1.

"CD IN" - were you supposed to plug in a Sony Discman? Didn't realise these existed.

I knew you would like that Fen - think it is basically an aux= I know a lad in the UK who owns one, which his mate in the USA posted to him. 

See what you mean about the complete CD speaker system - very pricey and speakers like moths .
