    Hey to you guys on the otherside of the ocean. I have been desperately trying to locate an original Pionner radio for my 512 BBi. The one I did locate was in Belgium and the guy who has it collects old radios and wont give it up. It seems as though it was a model that was not sold in USA. It is model KE-4300. I have attached a picture hope it works. It does not have to have the Ferrai insignia.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Hi Charliek,we did have a 4300 until we had new office built then it was thrown away,came up with nothing at our radio supplyers,
    did ring a classic radio chap in the uk and he told me that these are available in the uk at anything from £5.00 tatty to £100+ mint,
    he hadnt got one but they come up at classic auto jumbles and shows he had attended,
    01353 860646 his name is mike and he may be able to sorce one for you,
    sorry not much help,
    Dale.

    Dale,
    Thanks so much for your efforts, shame about that one being tossed. I called Mike but he doesnt have anything. I guess the search goes on. Thanks again.

    Hi Guys,
    Just double checking to see if anyone has found this item buried in their basement, still searching. It almost seems futile.

    Morning.

    I have a guy here who did all the US east Coast Factory installs for Ferrari when they came in through Philadelphia,

    He still has tons of stuff laying around.

    I'll call him tomorrow AM my time (East Coast USA) and see what he has.

    Charlie,

    Are you still looking for the Pioneer radio / cassette ? The original set was a KE4300, I have found a KE1300. It looks exactlty the same as a KE4300, the only difference being the internal workings of the tape player.

    It has been tested and is in working order, there are a few scratches on the silver facia where the tape is pushed in, other thah that considering it's over 20 years old it's not in bad condition.

    I will collect the set today and post some pictures for you
