The VW/Audi radios from the late '80s (Autobahn 200) have both of them
installed in them, actually it is set up by programming the radio. Those radios
are junk and probably everyone has replaced them by now. You should be able to
find one in a heap at a junk yard and salvage the colored condomes.

Good luck, Peter
