    Default Radio faceplate question

    Have to replace my Blaupunkt radio. Going to try a used one as a replacement. My car only has 12,000 miles so the interior is like new. My question is this: are the radio faceplates interchangeable with different units or is the faceplate somehow “matched” electronically to the receiver unit? What I’m hoping to be able to do is to use my own no-wear faceplate on the replacement receiver unit. Thanks in advance for answers.
