    What are the thoughts on this new Becker Mexico? http://www.classicdriver.com/uk/maga...0.asp?id=12924 [​IMG] The original is an icon for German cars but this new one seems to capitalize on the concept, and aesthetic integrity of the vintage version. An original without cassette option: [​IMG]

    I have the original '60s version without the cassette in my car so this seems a rather cheaper version of that.

    This is an original version with a cassette:
