Lenny, will this aeriel work with the Sony DAB radio fitted to my focus titanium??

Hi Mike,
I don't know to be honest mate,
I know ford put an additional aerial in the focus behind the mirror on the drivers side wing mirror but I can't remember if its fitted to focus equiped with GPS or Dab purposes. Hopfully someone else can advise you on this because I know dab aerials have 12v supply going to them to amplify the signal and if its the same aerial used for am/fm/lw then the aftermarket aerial may not be compatable.
But my honest answer is that I don't know mate,
Hopfully some one in either mk7 fiesta or focus can advise.

Have something to contribute?

You can but a DAB/FM aerial splitter. for around £20 off eBay. I went down this route and it has been flawless. The splitter does require 12v as well.

Just an update, I have now fitted new ultra white headlights, side lights and parking lights bulbs. I have also fitted the custom heater controls. Being the dunce I am I have still not taken pictures but will do in due course.

It's been a while but I am finally back on here and now paying for more stuff :D I have just ordered a new performance air filter and NGK Iridium spark plugs. Hopefully just get a smoother ride and maybe a brake in increased power.
I am now looking at wrapping my stereo surround since the garage scratched it taking the radio out!
I have given up on the DAB radio and am now just looking at double din head units with iphone compatibility. Anyone have any ideas of which are good? Preferably below the £300 mark.

Concerning the new head unit, how much do you want out of it?

Could get the bluetooth version of mine + fitting kit for 300.

Many fellow members have recently fitted different new head units so theres plenty of choice

I would like a screen, or at least something that doesn't make it look like two single dins stuck together! Just something compatible with the iPhone so i can plug it in, charge it and play music through it. I installed an aux cable on my current 6000CDS but its a pain using the iphone to change tracks. Also something that is compatible with the control stalk on the steering wheel would be ace!

Well you can get my head unit for around 200quid, or around 240 for the bluetooth version. Plus 60quid for the fitting kit.

Has a touch screen, made for ipod, plays dvds, has a front aux in and usb port. Retains your stalk controls with the adaptor provided in the kit. You can also connect a reverse parking camera to it.

Also if your connecting an iphone/ipod touch to it, i believe it has app mode. Which allows you to use your phones apps on the head units screen. So i believe if you have a free satnav app on your iphone, you can get satnav for free on the head unit.

The lights were from eBay, I can't find the exact seller but ones like;

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item416dd0f24b

They aren't the brightest as some go to 100W but I think the are superb.

I have been looking at installing interior lights in the footwells. I know some Foci have bulb holders and I have looked but can't find any. Does anyone have a decent pic of a bulb holder that I can compare mine to?
