Hi, I've just purchased my Focus (1.8 tdci zetec) and am really happy with it (ow I've got used to a diesel!). The first change I want to make is to the head unit. In my previous car i had an aftermarket Kenwood unit which I could play mp3's through a usb stick and even stream music via bluetooth through my phone but this time I want to stick to a Ford/Sony stereo so that it fits in with the dashboard style better and I'll also be able to make full use of the Ford bluetooth module that is already fitted.
I currently have the Ford 6000cd unit which is ok but doesn't play mp3's so from what i can work out I can even buy a connects2 lead and fit a usb in my glove box which would be ok or go for a Sony headunit (from a focus so that the bluetooth/calling module still works) which would then enable me to play mp3's on a cd. However even after reading loads of threads from various sites I have a couple of questions.... If I go for the Sony MP3 dab unit which I've seen can I just use it as a standard FM radio without having to change aerials etc? Is there any better option apart from going for a non Ford/Sony stereo? I don't want to have to fit new phone mic etc which is why I'm thinking of the Sony unit.
In an ideal world I would love blutooth streaming and usb slot but don't think there is a Ford unit out there offering this?
