Which System?

3 posts in this topic

hi! My first post here so please be gentle with me! I've just bought a Mk6 2004 Fiesta Zetec, and I'm the happiest man alive. Well i was, until i realised how basic the CD player in there was. (And how horrific the removal procedure is)

So after watching Youtube videos I thought, screw this, Im calling a pro. The result...? £60 to remove and fit a single din cage! Result. So now i get to chose which lovely looking stereo I want to replace it with. This is where i was hoping i could see some peoples results? What did you go for? Why did you go for it? Do you like it? Single Din or Double Din?

i did notice this, and wondered if anyone had fitted one and what they're like? Will it fit straight into the hole left by the original stereo?

Are there better double DINs out there for similar price?

Many thanks guys

I'm not sure of the exact size of the factory stereo but you can get panel fillers that block up any gaps. You also need the prongs to get your current CD player out.

Amazon would be your best bet. Cheaper than halfrauds
