Anyone got an OEM Blaupunkt Head Unit (Brera / 159) for sale?
Wondering if any of you that have replaced their OEM 159 or Brera Blaupunkt CD head unit with an aftermarket one would like to part with the original spare OEM one?
My OEM head unit has died and would just like to replace it - I have the model with the BOSE upgrade so thinking an aftermarket unit will be too much of a chore to get working properly with the BOSE system. A fair few months ago my unit started switching on and off randomly, eventually managed to drain my battery (I had to call the AA to recharge me, and I pulled the fuse under the hood so it didn't do it again!)
I've since put the fuse back in and it's deader than tank tops now (checked all the fuses - convinced it is the head unit. Multimetered the power connecter on the back ISO loom and there is 12v going to it, and the fuse in the OEM unit is sound too)
I know the OEM unit is not the sexiest, but with the BOSE it sounds better than me driving around with my headphones on, plugged into my phone!
I'm hoping some kind UK fellow Alfa head will have one sitting in their garage gathering dust, now that they are fully bluetoothed, sat-nav'd, dvd, reversing camera'd up! Monetary compensation is available...
I'm obviously hoping here that the head unit isn't "paired" with the car computer or some such, and if it then needs a code??
If not I'm going to have to bite the bullet and go aftermarket and wrangle with the BOSE side of things (hook up to RCA outputs instead of speaker outs with an additional cable??)
