  1. Ford part numbers

    Hi, I have first hand experience in retrofitting Sync 2 to a 2013 Ford Kuga that came with the 4" display I came across very little help and had to do it all my self and I am happy to let you know how to do it. It's a lot easier than you think. or at least it should be on the focus. I you have a look at the posts from about a year ago on sync 2 in the kuga part of the forum you will bee what I did. I have a lot of info on this and can help out where i can. Kindest Regards Alan

  4. So Anyone have the 2015 Mustang?

    Hi I live just up the road in Wishaw, I just picked up my Mustang a week ago. But i opted for the 5 Litre V8. the noise sold me. pics below. I think the black roof really helps break down the yellow. it as all the extras, but no Custom Pack as I didn't like the wheels that came with the pack.
  5. Any Mustang Owners Out There?

    Received my Mustang a week ago already done 1k miles in it love driving it. a few pics of my car on the day I collected it from the show room..

  9. Adding Park Assist After Purchase

    Hi you can Reto Fit prity Much anything but you need to have a technical mind set and be reasonably good with electronics and computers. Ie you would need to purchase the Park assist Module normally this is located at the driver side rear quarter panel you would need to remove this to see it. I can get the part number from mine, only thing is to check how many Sensors your car has as I beleave that the Park Assist has 2x extra Sensors but these can be fitted if your up to the job. yes the car need to know that you have park assit fuction but this can be enabled with an ELM Cable that has been altered to write data back to the car and with a free bit of software. you will need to check out the as built data from a car with Park Assist and Also compare it to yours. and make the adjustments. Always remember to create a backup of the car's data before you do anything or you can cause problems and if anything goes wrong your are "Pritty much on your own" to fix it. so there is risk when you play with this, But it can be done if your game. and PS you will need to consult the ford etis website to get the wiring diagrams to get it all connected up. and you may have to get cabled /connectors from breakers yards ( I have had more luck with USA Breakers) as the Kuga is also sold there as the Escape. i fitted the 8" Sync2 from the USA before it was even sold in a kuga in the UK. My Kuga came with Sync 1 without Nav and now it's amazing! so it can all be done if you put your mind to it and Hope this isn't too much info. Kindest Regards Alan

    re fitting the camera, Sascha (ford Retrofit.com) enabled the reversing camera option on my apim (Sync 2 Module) shipped it via UPS paid the extra he got it in 2 days and returned it within 2 days. I purchased the parts from ebay Camera, Plastic bezel Camera Module ran 4 cores cable from the sync head unit to the rear of the car under the carpet Driver side following the loom wiring. 2x cores carries the video feed to the APIM Module, and 1x Carries 12 Volts 5 Amps to the control module. Took a feed from the Rear Boot/Door for the earth and also for the MS Can bus from the Power LiftGate on my Kuga. But this can be run from elsewhere is needed. wired up the Camera Module (using a disk i got from ebay with all the wiring diagrams for the US Escape. and cross compared with the EU etis website. as my Sync is a US Unit. pictures below. I also Installed the LED Tail Lamps. :) from a Titanium X
