Alright, Im after some information on what any of you guys thing about having a digital radio I think the name is dab or something like that.

I have a 2014 fiesta zetec s.

I was wondering if I could fit the Sony radio that's in the St model and in the titanium models in mine and if there any good as mine has the standard looking one in.

Also if it can be fitted where could I get my hands on one or get one fitted.

Thanks Adam.

DAB is terrible, in my view not worth the expense.

You'd be better served streaming internet radio channels via a phone.

DAB signals are generally poor and channel availability on a moving vehicle is sparse to say the least.

(Personal view of course)

If you want to go to the expense of fitting a Ford DAB system (about £800 if bought new from a dealer) then fair do's.

Cheaper units are sometimes found on ebay.

In my car I either stream via my phone on 4G or just play mp3's off a memory stick.

There's far more stations available via a phone radio app than any DAB signal can provide.

Personally I would just replace with a standard clutch.

The standard clutch is built for the gearbox your running so no need to upgrade it in my eyes.

Is the ST bumper a direct replacement for stock mk2.5 bumper?

Yes but you have to bear in mind the double exhaust pipes.

Running with only one pipe will look strange.

You can get a twin pipe fitted as some on the club have done.

Fitting a stock ST rear box is a non starter though as the back box intrudes into the spare wheel well space on a standard MK 2.5.

Front one will fit ok but you will probably need new fog lights, as far as I can recall they use a different mounting layout
