Stereo Upgrade - amber display?

I have a 97 Z3 with a cassette player. I'm looking to upgrade to a cd player but can't seem to find a cd-stereo out there with the amber display. Any advise on where to look?

There's a Kenmore and an Alpine unit that have an amber setting. I don't know the model numbers, but they're current and shouldn't be hard to find.

Nakamichi makes a nice stereo with an amber display that I've heard is a very good match. However, they're not cheap.

I have a JVC unit. Works great in my Z and it has a variable color display. Matches the dash color almost exactly. You can get one for about $100.

Kenwood x994 has 10 or so color displays to choose from, its what we installed in our 2001 Z3. Looks good.

Blauplunkt also makes a couple of more "subdued" appearing units that match well. Midwest Audio is the US dealer.
