Hi,

the one you need is actually the RM-610 - the RM 310 was a lower spec.

I know someone in the States with a boxed brand new one (including the amplifier) which he wanted 500 dollars for (I believe) - let me know if you want to get in touch and I will PM you his email address.

Here's an RM-310 I came across lately, but it's not for sale. Crazy interface. Click for larger version.

I find it interesting but I suppose the reality is it's old technology, lets face it even CD's are old hat. It's all MP3 these days

Means my old seperates are museum displays.

I suppose with some fibreglass and components you could make a modern version for a stevens, except I have a glass sunroof!

Okay folks . . . this might just interest some of you.

I just bought the parts stock from an ex-Lotus dealer in the greater Toronto area. The dealership went bust in the early 1990's and the head mechanic retained the parts. Now he is 64+ and looks soon to retire (I believe).

In this collection I have parts for the G-body overhead stereo.

1) the grey "soft" vinyl/plastic outer body shell of the stereo unit

2) a black (dark grey?) metal plate

These items are new, however they have been sitting (bagged) on a shelf for 20 years. I would say they are around 9.25 out of 10 in condition. I own Steven's cars so I have no real need for these. E-mail me if you are interested in them. Since I am on holidays till late August there may be a bit of a delay returning the e-mails.

I have one of those, if anyone is interested, please let me know, is brand new,

Never install or use.

Strange but true, is new.

I bought one of these last year, sightly damaged, with a view to making a updated version with SD card slot, DAB, LCD screen etc. No point in a CD player as these are, as red Vtech rightly said, a dead format now but I sill haven't got round to it.

Was thinking of using it to mould some copies.

Great Idea, the unity that I have this completely original, as I was never mounted.

Nor disassembled.

However if the product that I have someone serves, is available with pleasure.
