 Is it a Bose?  (Assume there's something special about the eq in the
 head unit.)  And does the led _always_ flash when the radio is off, even
 w/ ignition on?>>

Yes, it's a BOSE.  And yes (that's the somewhat annoying part) the led always
flashes when the radio is not switched on, but unles it's night-time, I
really wouldn't notice.  Encourages you to listen to the radio/tape.

<< My wife's 90 has a Gamma (not Bose).  It has what appears to be a red
 led on the front, but it never lights up; probably another one of those
 things that isn't connected in the little cars.  (Maybe I could swap for
 hers, and buy her a nice aftermarket job-- she doesn't have the matrix
 display, anyway.) >>

Sure, if your delta in the V8 isn't a BOSE (not likely).
