Fitted to the 218iS if I recall (remember how soft they were when my parents test drove one and ended up ordering a VI-wish I could find a mint, low mile example now) too.

Re: R3 ICE compatibility

Good news, thank you :) While digging through my parts stash I found an Alpine changed and cable I'd forgotten about. Neither has been tested but as it has a cassette in it I'm going to try it.
