I was searching for a head unit for my Excel as it had a correct Clarion but nowadays you need hands free....but the PO had mentioned how he had searched for the right one and it put the bug in my brain, oh, gee I shouldn't put some flashing light disco head unit in a 1987 car

Anyway, I ended up buying a Kenwood marine unit, because they go for a different aesthetic from car units, and it has square buttons and is silver, so it looks kinda 80's

Why do you care?

As this pertains to Elises/Exiges, marine units are meant to be in the sun, and frequently have a lit screen with dark numbers for visibility in bright sun, which makes them perfect in a topless car.

Plus they usually have coated PC boards and that cannot be a bad thing in a British car

I just put a JVC marine unit in my '87 Esprit. I chose it because it supports a backup camera which is really a nice addition to the Esprit.
