You can change the double din one's for a single din one and a blanking panel. The panels are only a few quid.

ANSWER TO QUESTION ABOUT ARMREST THERE IS NO FORD ITEM BUT I BOUGHT ONE OF EBAY BRAND NEW FOR £50 THE GUY DEALS IN THEM FOR ALL MAKES AND MODELS CANT REMEMBER HIS NAME SO YOU WILL HAVE TO SEARCH ARMRESTS

THE QUALITY WAS FIRST CLASS WITH EASE OF FITMENT WITH STOWAGE UNDER THE REST LID ONCE IN YOU WOULD NOT KNOW IT NEVER LEFT THE FACTORY ALREADY FITTED

Welcome to the club fella

Come on what where you driving before? it cant be that bad!

I agree with everyone else, you may aswell by a new headunit and blanking plate. As for which one that is down to personal taste to be honest and up to you how much you want to spend
