I recently purchased a MK5 Ford Fiesta (my first car), and it came with the stock stereo installed, which only has a tape player.
(The layout is the same as this here, with an identical picture of the one I have being removed here)
 
I dont want this stereo and am looking for an alternative, to me, that looks like a native double din stereo (but I wouldn't know), so Ive assumed that This car stereo will fit it, will I have any issues? compatibility with existing components? will there be any items I need to make it fully functioning and/or fit correctly? any input with be helpful thanks!
 
[for additional info, this is the backpane of the kenwood here]

This radio will not fit as the MK5 Fiesta only take a 'din and a half' size radio so you can only fit a single din with a fascia plate (or modify the dash to allow for double din but that would be a lot more work)  :(
