Welcome to the forum,
When you get a momment please join photobucket or a similar image hosting site, you can then upload some images of your motor and link them to the forum.
You may also like to have a look on the dmb graphics website for some gel ford badge overlays.

the only thing the stereo is linked to that i am aware of is bluetooth, voice control and the steering stalk.
but you can purchase a model specific steering stalk adaptor for example ford fiesta to kenwood steering stalk adaptor which would allow the controls to operate as normalon the aftermarket unit.
no car manufacturer is as bad as honda for building things in to the stereo lol my mate had a 2002 honda civic and the remote central locking module was buit inside the factory stereo lol

hi and thanks again lenny,we took the stereo out to see if we would loose anything,the settings for the car run thru the radio as in the settings for folding mirrors,chimes for warnings ie door open not wearing seatbelt.... and in the dash display behind the steering wheel the mpg/total miles/miles to empty etc dissapeared flashed on then dissapeard again,everything came back on when the radio was put back in.....this is driving us potty as the kenwood has been in a golf/focus and mk6 fiesta with no problems!!!
