Yeah the stereo came with an adapter. I imagine with it being an ebay job, it probably originated in Asia somewhere. Seems to run ok when plugged in though - just no radio reception right now but I'll see if I can get one of those adapters from Halfords over the weekend :)

It looks like this-

As for the fitting of the radio, how different are the clips in dimension/design?

They seem fairly similar but the new ones are taller which is why they don't fit. You can see the difference in the images I posted earlier - both stereos are the same height but their brackets differ. I tried to remove the brackets from the old stereo to move over to the new one but they seem to be part of the front plate so I don't think that'll work unfortunately

I reckon then (as stated before) yoi'll need to remove the radio fascia and test fit the radio to in on a bench then you'll have full access to trim the fascia to match the clips better.
Just be sure that you are able to remove the radio from the fascia a couple of times before final fit to the car.
You don't want to get into a position where the radio goes in ok but you can't remove it without breaking something.

Hmm ok, if anything I'm just trying to avoid having to hack anything up if there's a simple replacement bracket that'll do the job instead :)

Doesn't look like Halfords have the iso to din adapter that I need for the radio which is a shame so I guess I'll have to order one onlie. Not sure if there's anywhere else I'd be able to pick one up locally

Lol cheers. Just raced round there and the guy fitted it for me with a booster since the reception didn't sound too great.

Slowly but surely getting there anyway :)

Did turn the sat nav on as I was driving back from Halfords and it seemed to be mapped to a different country but I'll work that one out this weekend...

Heh, the replacement facia (DFP-07-17) arrived today but sadly the opening was too small.

Does anyone know if there's a facia with an opening that would fit this stereo:

I get the feeling that maybe what I need here is a fitting kit or cage. I've had a look in the stereo hole and I don't really understand how a cage would be secure inside there but I guess it would become apparent if I got my hands on one. With my stereo being 10cm high I guess I'd need a dfpk-103 to fit it properly. Fingers crossed this will be the right solution...

I'm looking at getting one of these units probably off a-sure, plus reversing camera too.

 

Have had a good read of this topic to get familiar with what's what but is there anything I need to look out for before hitting that buy it now button?

 

Cheers

Guys there is one called the eonon d5161 and you can change the color of the LEDs to suit the dash as well as add a ford logo splash screen at start up.
Does anyone know is the sat nav good on these? I'm looking a satnav but I really like the look of these and I am geared towards buying one if the sat have are decent enough.
Thanks.
