Ive done it. The head unit comes in two parts (one is screwed to the other), the control panel and the cd unit. As far as im aware the cd unit is standard its the control panel thats different.
Its reasonably easy, feeding the extra wiring on the new loom is the worst bit.
I was one of the two people Nath activated it for, nice chap, only took him 10 mins.

I bought the loom and mic from a ford dealer, if you search on here there is a thread somewhere with the part numbers on.
I originally bought the mic for my focus but when i traded it in i took out all the bits and put them into the fiesta its the same part

Thinking back i think there were three separate parts, the main one with the bluetooth module connector on it which also goes up to the control panel, one which piugs in that and runs up the a pillar and across the roof lining for the mic and another which also plugs into the first and goes up the centre console to the usb/aux port under the gearstick.
The main loom was the hardest coz you have to get the connector up behind the dash to the control panel and theres not a lot of room, the others werent that bad

Did you switch out the complete loom or did you add it to the existing loom? Do i have to cut into existing cables?
I'm looking to do the same upgrade as you did. Could you pm me how much everything in total costed?
Also did you have to replace the GEM?

Does the required IDS coding differ when you upgrade from non-bluetooth to bluetooth, from the coding needed from bluetooth to bluetooth+usb?
The latter is like this:
IDS:The 3 parameters are:Voice Control: select Basic Voice RecognitionAccessory USB unit: select With USB and iPod FunctionBluetooth handsfree: select BT/VC Phone Interface + USB connection
