In my '75 I'll upgrade the speakers, and then I know of a place where they use the face of your original deck and basically put it over the top of an aftermarket one, full function (or as close to as possible) using the stock knobs/buttons, but fold the face down and it shows your real stereo. So it keeps the stock look, but gives you up-to-date functionality.
In the L7 I plan to do a LOT of drivin... road trips, cruisin, Bimmer drives, etc. So I wanted dvd/mp3 function with premium sound. If the original hadn't been just am/fm cassette with no aux. imput I may have kept it and just put in a dvd system - however since the amp & speakers are nice I decided to transplant them into another vehicle.
