Mkv 5 Door Radio Replacement & Body Accessories

03 December 2012 - 08:44 PM

Hi folks,

Ok, so I'm getting my first road going car soon; a Fiesta MkV 5 door. The previous owner upgraded the original cassette player to a CD player, but it's faulty. I'd like to replace it with a reasonably priced CD player with AUX socket. The socket is the most important part, as I'll likely play playlists from Spotify on my Phone, as opposed to lugging about CDs and getting them scratched. Can anyone advise me on this please? I know it's not just a simple case of taking the old one out and sliding a new one in, as it is in some older cars, because it needs the fascia. I've never replaced a radio like this, so I'm wondering what I'll need and where to begin. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Secondly, I'm wondering if there's a spoiler available that's similar to this, which is featured on the MkVII Titanium. Obviously I'm not looking for exactly the same shape, as it wouldn't fit the older model, but something as close as possible to it; backwardly sweeping, almost cowl like in shape and with a wide centre panel. The brake light isn't overly important, but would be a nice touch.

If the year of production is needed, I'll have to wait before I can pass that information on, as I don't have anything to refer to yet (I'm not actually receiving the car until later in the week).

Thankyou kindly for welcoming me to the forums!

Soon To Be Fiesta Mkv Owner

Hi all,

I'm fresh to these forums and just thought I'd pop in and say hello. I'll be getting my new Fiesta MkV next week, which will be my first road going car. I had a Metro before, but I kept it off road as a project car. I'll post a pic or two when I get the Fiesta. Thankyou for having me here!

All the best!
