bugs are always a pain, autoglym active insect remover gets rid of them easy enough, they also so do some bird dropping wipes which i highly recommend as I'm sure anyone will tell u bird muck and paint don't mix lol.

also just started using these liquid wax's, quick to apply and give a surprisingly resilient finish so that will stop everything clinging to ur top motor

No that is the non-DAB version.

I dont suppose you have a part number for a Sony DAB one..? I am trying to get that via a picture or text and a picture of the back of it, loom plug etc...

It's amazing. I'm going to pick up mine this friday - incredibly exited :-) The black 'black' version though ;-)

But really, this white is also really sexy.

Good luck with it.

I believe it is FINIS code: 1748868 / part: AA6T-18C815-XB. It should look the same as the pic I posted previously (the one on the right, single connector) except DAB has an additional aerial next to the FM one one.

Thanks Nath, hate to be seen highjacking a thread, but what you have come up with is the same numbers as a picture i have of a unit, 'it' had the Sony face plate on it. Looking at the diagram on the right, there are 2 face plates available the normal silver face plate, and the Sony one? Now, unless im going nuts, Sony do a non dab one, because it says like in your picture.. Model: "Radio AHU Sony" But in the picture i got that matches the part number you just given above, in the box for Model, it just says "Radio AHU DAB", no mention of Sony? So, is the DAB model a Sony one, or just a Ford one with a Sony facia, and Sony speakers fitted!!?

So i got:

AA6T-18C815-AE Model: Radio AHU

AA6T-18C815-SE Model: Radio AHU Sony (non DAB)

AA6T-18C815-XB Model: Radio AHU DAB

Some have a single rectangle connector, some have 2. The one i had ending XB, had 2 plug connectors, i figured the other plug was for the module that goes in the rear of the car. Yes, there are 2 round plugs white FM, black DAB, as you said.
