I have removed my 6000CD and fitted a Sony from ford that is a straight fit,
But some very important things to note prior to purchasing,
If your 2010 focus has bluetooth, this is not part of your stereo, the module is fitted above the glove box inside the dash.
When purchasing a replacment stereo ford manufacture their stereoß identical to each other but the software inside them is different.

Any Stereo from a Ford Mondeo wont function correctly on a Ford Focus.features such as steering stalk, voice control, bluetooth and Aux port wont function aswell às a humming can be heard on the ford focus mic. If using a mondeo head unit.

Any stereo from a 2005-2008 ford focus wont operate bluetooth, voice control or Aux port on a facelift ford focus.

The internal software is different and wont allow these features to function and the software cant be updated.

Trust me, ive wasted almost 400pounds in buying and selling to find out the hard way.
I now have a 2007 Ford Focus Sony stereo fitted,
Which is not compatable with my Aux port, Bluetooth or Voice Control.
Ive sold my 6000CD two years ago to purchase a sony 6 CD changer stereo from a 2009 Mondeo and it all started from there.

You can google the model number of the stereo to find out what year and model it was removed from,
This will help you purchase the correct model compatable with your model.

If your selling your 6000CD and your model had bluetooth fitted,
Id be interested in purchasing for 50pounds.

Thats a nice stereo you linked mate,
But if your happy with your existing 6000CD then see daves guide on installing usb to your ford.
It also allows control of iPod via steering stalk
http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/tutorials/article/20-guide-to-installing-the-ford-usb-music-box/

Also no ford stereo has usb on the rear.
Some bluetooth modules do though on the higher spec sony with usb in the centre console.

Looks good mate,
Dynamic sounds are a good supplier too, ive bought a few parrot systems from them in the past.
