Hi Robert - pretty illusive these. I obtained a complete system, including head unit and remote on ebay after maintaining a watch for about a year. (The original head unit had failed, and a previous owner had lost the remote).
(No other head unit looks quite right in these cars! and when they are working properly, the sound quality is very good)
The head unit model number is the TDA7537R - I would save a search on ebay for this. you could also save a search for "Alpine remote"
It's worth noting that the TDA7537R was produced in regular Alpine branded guise, and also, exclusively for Rolls Royce, with no Alpine branding. I would assume the remote for both would be interchangeable. Certainly they are between the RR unbranded units - the remote worked for both my head units without any sort of re-programming.
Do you know what they look like, in terms of recognising it? if not, let me know and I'll post a photo!
