Hi, im not sure what your budget is but i highly recommend the Sony CD player that ford supplies in the mk2 focus titanium as factory stock. They work really well, look cool and sound amazing imo.

also because its designed to fit the mk2 focus theres no messing about with faceplaces or wireing adapeters + fits nice and flush with the curve of the dash

I think 169.99 is a pretty good price but you can probs find it cheaper if u look around

I'll second that advise. Make sure you get the key code card with it.

There is a six disc version also available.

You may get a better deal using an online parts search site. The scrappies who use these are not so aware of the value of this CD player.

ooh yeh, forgot to say that, like Nigel S said, make sure u get the 4 digit code :)
bigdaz86
ok thanks for that advice guys seems like sound advice will have a shop around. :P
bigdaz86
saw a couple on ebay though a few are the squarer shape so they wont fit will they?? also is it hard to get the code for the cd players?
bigdaz86
:unsure:

Hi,I don't know why you don't choose the DVD player? I think DVD is better than CD player. DVD have lots of function,radio,DVD,USB,SD,GPS,TV,AUX,BLUTOOTH,IPOD.
I buy one for my focus car from http://www.cnbuynet.com/ford-gps-dvd-player-c-202.html?zenid=6u5amake5g63flsj9hvian0pc3

it run well,i like the gps most. I can travel around and never get lost. But it is a little expensive that cd, it is more or less USD400 including shipment cost.

hope it is helpful to you.

The dark one seems to be missing the screw holes in each corner like the silver one.

Should fit though, not sure on the quality.

I suggest this one and i trust this system manu. They said they will test it before shipment. I don't know which one fit your car. May be you can send email to them.

is the car the mk2 focus or the mk2.5?

the stereo shape is different for each one, the mk2.5 (2009 etc, like the stereo in the link you posted has curved edges and is smaller)

the mk2 stereo is larger and more square like in the ebay listing I linked you too. what year is the car?
MrrNoName
just noticed yr profile says 57 plate?

i not 100% sure but i think thats mk2 (dunno when they started making the mk2.5) are you sure your stereo is the smaller curvy one??
bigdaz86
yeah its curved its a weird shape damn focuses makes it a nightmare to get a stereo due to size and shape? my cars a 57 plate registered nov 2007?
MrrNoName

artscot79
it has no code and a v serial number which means only a dealer can get you the code for that only buty ones either with an m serial number or code supplied i can get you the m codes but v is dealer only it looks like a fit for that kinda money you can buy a far superior aftermarket one mate http://productfinder.autoleads.co.uk/products.aspx?m=FORD&f=FOCUS&id=486&PIDs=7262,7261,7284,7249,7254,7255,7267
