  1. The focus stereo looks great in your picture, I originally really wanted that one but from what I read I didn't think it would fit! Purely for the matching green lights I would want this stereo, but the fact that the display inbetween the dials won't work would annoy me. I guess we just can't have the best of both worlds! Looks like its one or the other!
  2. Hi, the Sony unit I've fitted fits flush, it's the same as the ford one. I was worried too about the orange lighting clashing with the green, but it's not too bad actually. The picture you have posted doesn't seem to load so I can't see it. Try again maybe? I'll upload a picture of mine when I get home later.
  3. Thanks for that. Was just worried that it may drain the battery. Does the display go off on its own after a bit? Cheers.
  4. Got the stereo today. Just fitted it, works and sounds great. My only concern is that when I turn the ignition off, the stereo goes off and the date and time appear on the display. However they seem to stay on and don't go off? Do you know if that's suppose to happen?
  5. Yes I have a 2008 mk 6.5. Thanks for all your help!
  6. The pioneers, they are 6x8s? Do they fit in the front? Sorry for all the questions, new to all this!
  7. Cheers for the input, appreciate it. How straight forward is it to change the door speakers? That's probably next on my list. Andy.
  8. Thanks for the reply. So basically it's just a straight swap, Nothing else needed? I think I'll give the bluetooth a miss then, would have been a bonus if it worked. What's the sound difference like in the Sony one compared to the original? Cheers.
  9. Hi all, I have a mk6.5 fiesta with the standard cd6000 unit in it. I have just purchased the ford sony stereo (that comes in some of the fiestas) and have a few questions about installing it before it arrives! This is the one: http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=10626 Will it just be a straight swap and work? Will it need a new adapter in the back of it or will the original work? Will the steering wheel control still work with it? And finally, the new one has bluetooth. What do I need to buy in order for it to work? Any help would be appreciated. Cheers, Andy.
