I do actually! I got far more than I needed, for ease though I’d try get a plug from a scrapper, they slide in and out so much easier!

Congrats on the upgrade and thanks for the guide! :D

Thanks! If anyone has any questions I’m more than happy to help! 

It took me 10 hours to do but that was with some figuring out along the way, I reckon if I was to do it again I could do it in half the time. The longest I stumbled for was because once all way connected the voice control feedback and bluetooth calls couldn’t be heard, I took about an hour for me to figure that was down to programming and not anything I’d done wrong 😂 I’ve been driving with it for a couple of days now and I can honestly say it’s well worth the effort! The difference is night and day 👍🏻👍🏻

@Luke_Anderson would it have been possible to swap over the physical air vent controls do you think? I'd like to be able to keep the look if I go for this with a fascia that doesn't have the chrome.

I'd love to, but until payday I can guarantee it would be lower than you'd want - like £150...

Ok before we both completely commit, can I just confirm, what you're selling includes:

APIM

ACM

FCDIM

Fascia

But not the media hub,

Right?

I don’t think so to be honest as it seems like it’s all part of the fascia, it’s more of a brushed aluminium as opposed to chrome though 👍🏻

If you buy that setup from mastachaz you’ll need to also get the plastic chassis for the apim / screen and acm, and the trim for the bottom of the fascia, I also bought them and found the cheapest place to be direct from ford 👍🏻

Great! Do you happen to know the finis codes and prices? I want to do this mod but I hate not having everything I need before I decide to start through not realising!
