I have a Europa II in one car and I had Becker refurbish a Mexico for my other car - the tape player sounds as good as cassette players did in the
70's (awful - and won't play dolby, metal, etc properly) - but I just wanted it fixed right. Neither of these are "period-correct" for my cars but IMO neither is a an all-analog gauged 380 or 560SL with a digital (and crappy, at that) radio display, like the radios that they came with.

Becker wasn't quite as speedy as they claimed to be in turn-around, but the price was very fair and they did good work.

I have a custom iPod input on the Europa II, with a very small motorcycle amp under the rear deck. The Mexico, I'm still debating on how best to do this.
