What headunit matches the style and lighting color best

I want to replace the stock headunit with something with Bluetooth, but I do like the look of the stock unit and would like to fit something that will not look out of place. Blaupunkt Bremen is a bit too much, but that’s the style I’d prefer.

If you have the H/K system you will just have to make sure you will need this: https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...hkenabler.html

Aftermarket and running H/K https://margaretandian.com/2004/04/1...ory_head_unit/

Or bypass the amp or you can replace the HK amp with an aftermarket amp and reuse the existing wiring to the speakers.

Non H/K cars you just connect the outputs to the speaker lines, It's universal.

VDO Head units with Bluetooth in BMW/MINI amber or there Blue.

So much of these cars is about the aesthetic and I am having a similar issue. It is fairly easy to find one with the proper color lighting, but the hard part seems to be finding one with a matte finish on the plastics. Most seem to be a gloss finish. I think Pioneer has one that is at least partially a matte finish but it was missing one of my necessary features (Bluetooth, works with Android and HD radio).
