I have the panel in my Focus and it's a great match for shade and texture. I just use it for the 3.5mm jack plug to save connecting to the one in the glovebox.

I did try the Ford approved USB >musicbox< but it wouldn't work properly with my Denso sat-nav so the O/H has it in her Fiesta ST now and that works fine with the Sony stereo.

I always thought the Superchips Bluefin was the most popular amoungst Ford owners, how do they compare price- wise/ how much does the Dreamscience cost?

Bluefin is very popular yes (it's what I have - can't fault it), but so is Dreamscience, code red, collins and revo amongst others.

They're all around the £320 > £500 mark and depends if you want a handset or not and how aggressive you want your turbo to come in. That is a compromise with longevity / clutch survival I'd advise...

It's not really the same engine as an RS. The main differences are: Internals, rods, pistons, crank, inlet camshaft and cobalt coated liners and the compression is lower. Bigger turbo as well and oil pump and cooler.

 

The fact that Ford don't maintain warranty for the Mountune MR290 package whereas the MP260 does should tell you something about the reliable tuning capability of the ST engine...

It's generally regarded on the owners forum that for the odd track day you'll be just as well off with the genuine ford pads and discs as they perform very well.

 

I got front and rear pads and discs from my local dealer last year for just over £200 and fitted them myself. Bargain.
