Well today ive finally upgraded my old ford head unit to the better sony unit on my mk3 Focus

 

Its took a while to suss out the correct models to use and today ive finally swapped it over.

 

Nice easy job to do took around 20 mins to do and im really impressed by the sony unit, which has a snappier interface and colour screen and also better sound.

 

my advice to anyone looking to swap theirs over is to check the serials and match what your swapping over.

 

I cant thank people enough on this owners club who have advised me on which unit to get.

 

Thanks everyone

looks good :smile:

Got it from a breakers off eBay, the fascia is immaculate, no scratches or scuffs.

 

My next job is to swap the instrument cluster, but im concerned about getting mileage corrected for the new cluster.

Looks absolutely brilliant, by matching serial numbers you mean match the stereo and screen? I'm looking to do this upgrade my self at some point, got centre console to do this coming month :)

Yes exactly, screen and main unit i matched, the sony fascia itself i think was different but was told it didnt matter with that, all central locking and hazard lights work still.

 

Defo worth the effort to upgrade

I am about to do this upgrade as well.

From my research I thought the part no. prefix should be the same as what was originally in the car eg. am5t or bm5t.

It is also advisable to get a complete system from one donor car.

Am I understanding it correct as I am literally going to pick up a Sony system later today?
