In a moment of madness I decided that I can’t live with the new Alpine head unit with a slot for CDs that I am never going to use but will inevitably attract dust & rain with the top down. So… I acquired the equivalent model without the CD function & swapped the new one out for an even newer one.
Everything seems fine so I just need to get MCA to fit working DAB & FM aerials (& resecure the new amp which has fallen off the transmission tunnel wall in the passenger footwell! 😔). And I am getting used to the new buttons. 😛
