I like a couple but there are companys out there that could make a front for a modern unit so it looks identical but , if you really don't want to modernise it just buy a Bluetooth speaker and be done with it

I'm only having a laugh sweet cheeks....... it's your seemingly relentless desire to offer advice even on things you, by your own admission, have little interest in; which amuses me.

oops almost forgot:

well.... for those sad enough to like these old cars, originality is key...... you see, I scoured the earth for an original lemon yellow Esprit, with a specific marcasite interior..... not only that, but the full spec had to be as it came out of the factory.

I've now got what I wanted, it cost me a lot of money and I'm not about to sling in some chav inspired flip front stereo.

Savvy?

Sounds like it may well be terminally corrupted by the modernity of an iPod.
Does it fail to start if the driver isn't wearing beige farahs and a sports jacket?

Sensible answer time:

In order to keep everything looking as original as possible:

--

See if the clarion has any line level outputs (red and white sockets on the back)

If it does then connect the line level outputs to a seperate amplifier hidden away somewhere and upgrade the speakers in the doors, also add a small subwoofer if you would like some more bass

If the clarion doesn't have any line level outputs then you'd lose a bit of quality but you can connect the speaker outputs from the clarion to the amp instead.

--

So thats the output side sorted.

The easiest way to get ipod connectivity would be to use a bluetooth to fm bridge. This means you can such connect your iphone via bluetooth like you can on a modern car and then broadcast the signal wirelessly via an fm frequency to your clarion to control.

Perfect, cheers love.

Dave W - I do actually try to wear brown clothing when driving the car, and I bought a pair of brown tint Ray Ban Aviators which stay in the car at all times........ true story.

How about leaving the old headunit in just for show...

And then upgrade the hidden speakers and use something like this (play music either from phone, memory card or FM radio)
