Hi,

Bit confused regarding the Mk of my focus

I have a 2008 Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec (115ps) Climate Pack

My friend has a 2005 1.6 Zetec Climate pack i don't think his is 115ps ??

The only difference i can see in the cars is mine has a newer looking radio unit?, i was told mine would have sports suspension as well by someone else but I'm not sure about that. Is mine a MK 2.5? or just a recent mk 2?

Cheers

Okay so the faclift 2.5 is quite different. Different front bumper, door rub strip gone, bigger mirrors, different front grille, cour coded rear spoiler, newer radio silver not grey, new headlights, rear spoiler is slightly wider ... If your bodies are the same as each others you both have pre facelift. His 1.6 may be the Ti-VCT which is 115bhp else 96bhp.

Easier to tell from a photo. Got one?

Yep, that's a pre-facelift MKII, same as mine. The front end is totally different to the facelift, but the interiors are largely identical (asides from the stero as mentioned).

The pre-facelift MKII had a number of stereo units. The base was the 6000CD, then the Sony (MP3 or 6CD) and then the 7" touch-screen Denso unit with satnav and MP3 etc. I have the Denso unit :) 'tis lovely.

Thanks for clearing that up. How easy is it to change the stereo in the focus?, and roughly how much do they cost.

Cheers,

Karl

Which stereo are you after? Ford or other? Either is easy but after Market would require a blanking plate unless it's a double DIN.

Well at the moment i have the standard 6000CD, what i really want is a an aux input (so i can use my i pod), halfords quoted me 110 that seems quite alot just for one cable and to fit it. Or they said a parrot system with i pod connectivity was 200.

What do you recommended?

Is it worth changing the stereo for ipod / aux connectivity or shall i pay out for the cable. I don't really want to install the cable myself.

Check with Ford. The Aux retro-fit should be a simple one if I recall correctly and Ford will be able to order the parts.
