Does anyone have a Delta (Blaupunkt)(Translation Blue Point) Delta radio for a '90 100, with code. I am fed up with mine which is marked as rebuilt in 1991. The only one I could find in a junkyard was also labeled as rebuilt in '91. I lost my nerve.

What is the problem w/ your radio? When plugged in and everything, the display doesn't read anything and I can't put in the code. I think it is fried and I think I need a new one. The other alternative is to rewire the car, and, if you want to keep the bose speakers- I don't know if you have the bose system- you have to disconnect the amplifiers. I am pretty sure I just want to go with rewiring, but I would like some advice.

My radio is the Blaupunkt, but the problem is similar to yours. I only got the car a few weeks ago. When I got the code in, it worked for a day or so. Then, the display would show the preselected station, but when I tried to turn up the volume it would go blank. Now I can't get it to display anything.
Send me your old Delta, I will transplant the front panel push button switches to mine, and will ship mine to you for $75.

For the mp3 player, did you have to rewire? Do you have the bose system? That's what I have and I can't really do anything but rewire or buy a new Bose Delta radio.
I have a 4ks, so I don't know about the Bose ins and outs. Crutchfield provides all the necessary adapters to allow hook up to the original connectors. Check them out.

Just replacing the head unit isnt even an option in the 5k. In addition to purchasing a new head unit, i had to buy and mount 4 new speakers AND rewire them to the head. The wiring that comes with the Audi stock systems is horrible. I'm not sure what kind of ass horrible engineers were hired to design the stereo system but jeez...THere are like 8 random speakers placed throughout the car, and instead of having the head unit supply power to them all, there are amplifiers placed throughout the wiring. But thats not even the worst part. The wires arent thick enough to handle any signals put out by an aftermarket head unit. I found all this out the hard way and ended up replacing everything and running new wire through everything. bah.
