      Going with either Koni's or FK Konigsports, which ever is on sale at the time. I thought there was a shop that carried FK in the bay, if there is please let me know. Thanks.

      i believe HOD can get them. 300 for an install alone is a great price considering how much work goes in to it.

      300 for a few (like 2hrs) hrs of work is More than the going rate. Even the dealer should be cheaper. if you where local I'd give you a hand.

      Its been a while, but didn't I buy a Nakamichi deck from you a few years ago?

      I did sell a CD400 few yrs back. Still one of the best looking head units for a 90's vw.

      $300 is a good price, especially considering that Autowerkstat wanted $500
