They swapped the connectors when the face lift came out, 2012<. Ford can easily source the pre-facelift dab unit. It just so happens you got the wrong year :(

Because I'm nice though, I'll take it off your hands so it doesn't cause you any stress :P

i had a feeling there would be a version that would fit into my car but it looks like I'd be better waiting for a Sony dab 2011 model to pop up on eBay.  I sent my 2013 model back to the original owner on eBay.

I did check eBay but i can't find the exact wheel nut which matches.  It's only the two on the car the rest have them and like you said they could of broken off from removing and putting wheels back.

I just tried this on mine and i also have the 2010 version with bluetooth, usb steering controls etc...  The sony dab are entirely different connectors still.  Unless someone comes out with a converter for this, it is very unlikely to be able to upgrade to dab without splitting cables and converting them yourself.  I'm not sure which model switched to the newer connections was it 2011?  See plenty of fiesta titanium 2011 versions with the sony dab.

 

My car was made in 2010 but was purchased in feb 2011.  if i had waited one more month i might of possibly got dab. :(  Though when i called in July or august of 2011 it sounded like they would sell me it for like 360pounds.  Would it of worked with my connections? Have no idea.  Where they talked out their butt? not sure either.

So i did a little research and had to go through the old brochures for the fiesta.  It's in the 2010 one and they are the 15" Sport alloy.  I'm still waiting for them to be delivered to me but it kind of made me a little cautious when i couldn't find them on autotrade.  I must of gone through hundreds and i still couldn't find a car with them.  I akso read reviews that the snow flake 15" had buckle issues but i can find plenty of them.  Didn't pick these specifically, just by a good deal on them.

So i decided to give the 195/50/15  -1.03% tyres a try, considering they came with the alloy.  If i feel it's better but could do with improving i might upgrade late to 195/55/15 2.41%.  I cant seem to find any fiesta's on auto trade or places that have these alloys.
