Need E24 Radio Recommendation

My 88 635csi (black on black) needs a new radio to replace the old Rover radio which is in it. I have some spare highend Blaupunkt radios (can use remote thumber) but the displays are horrible in the sunlight. I would like to put in an updated radio with remote that does not look like circus lights when it is on. Any recommendations. Radio should also have a USB slot. Would like a more traditional styled black radio. Are there any out there now.

Radio in

I ended up with an Alpine 126BT (Bluetooth, remote ready, USB, Aux and I-pod connection. Replaced and upgraded all speakers - sound is great but still lacks a little punch in the bass - Will now add a sub and a small amp to power it. Radio has sep. subwoofer control.

Radio ergonomics are good and the install is clean - not to flashy. Could not find a Nakamichi dealer around.
