  1. Radio Upgrade

    I can see them. They worked mate. Thank you. Looks pretty good in my opinion. The knobs may be a little too long, but hey ho..
  2. Radio Upgrade

    Yeah, thats the one i've been looking at. Can i ask, what does it look like when the ignition is off? does it look quite standard? does it blend well when the ignition is off? Does it look good when everything is on? or does it look a bit tacky?
  3. Reverse Sensors..

    Cheers for all the info guys, I actually forgot about this thread. As for which head unit im getting, its a toss up between two. Both of them being Eonon brand from eBay. They do a good few different models, but im going for one with dvd/bluetooth/gps blah blah, but its also got full mobile phone connectivity/screen mirroring and all that kind of gadgetry. Not really needed but fun to play with while your waiting for your Mrs :D
  4. Radio Upgrade

    Am in the process of deciding which Eonon to get, so many gadgets! :D
  5. Clear Rear Fog Lense

    Hi guys, cheers for the replies. Ive messages gforce to see how much he wants. Thanks stoney but your probably right, im an impatient bugger.
  6. Clear Rear Fog Lense

    Hi guys, Been away for a while but that means the money has been piling up (conservative amounts anyway) Just wondering where the best/cheapest place to pick up a clear rear fog lense is? Ive checked the old eBay but not much on there. Any help appreciated. Matt
  7. Thanks a lot Kurt, very helpful. Just one more question, I notice in the windscreen posted above, there is a opening for the sensor, Is there an opening for the sensor on our glass? or do you have to mount the sensor lower down so it isn't covered by the black stuff?
  8. Strange Things..

    Really? Bummer. Thanks mate.
  9. Strange Things..

    I'm sure mate. Definitely no "Auto" on my headlight switch. I am thinking maybe it just has all the wiring? It definitely doesn't have the sensor behind the rear view mirror. Not sure why they would say it had it and not fit it.
  10. Strange Things..

    Just checked my car on etis, says i have auto headlamps. The switch is just a standard one, no auto. Could it just mean i have the loom for auto headlamps?
  11. De-Tango Front Indicators

    Well... Thats a bit rubbish aint it.. Guess i'll have to settle for the rear lights only.. Thanks mate.
  12. Ok, so I've had a search, cant really find any info on removing the orange from the FRONT indicators. Rears seem easy, just swap the bulbs, but the front indicators look like they actually have orange inserts inside them. Is this correct? or is it just the bulbs that are orange like the rears? Cheers, Matt
  13. 2015 Focus Facelift (Mk 3.5) Unveiled

    The front does't look too bad, Not a huge fan of the wrap around rear lights though.. I've always been a fan of older cars though, so i may be biased... :D
  14. Reverse Sensors..

    Cheers mate. I know they take a reverse camera, I'm just waiting to hear back from the supplier as to weather the screen will automatically switch to reverse camera when you select reverse. Kinda defeats the purpose of having to stop, select the right AV channel before you start reversing. I was just wondering if it could work alongside the reverse sensors, but i guess i answered my own question, the two things (camera and sensors) would just run separate but simultaneously. And as far as the quality of the Chinese units goes, I'm not expecting a top notch finish, but it has everything i want (Bluetooth/Sat Nav/USB/Ipod) with the bonus of DVD if needed and also SD cards, for a fraction of a branded unit of the same spec. Built in 4 chan 65 watt amp too, so im assuming it should run the factory speakers ok.
  15. Reverse Sensors..

    Ok, so i am going to fit one of these Chinese double din dvd/sat nav/blah blah headunits, and im also going to fit reversing sensors for the Mrs. My question is, can anyone think of a way of connecting the sensors to the headunit? I know it wont read the video or show a picture, just thought there might be a way, as i know you can get reverse sensor units that have screens. The other option i was thinking of, (after being in The Mrs uncles new Qashqai, is to get a reverse camera (numberplate style) and link that to the headunit, and have the reverse sensors too, so when it goes into reverse, the screen comes on for the camera, and the reverse sensors turn on, just like in the newer cars. Thoughts?
