Stereo upgrade recommendations for focus mk2

Recommended Posts

My partner looking for a replacement stereo for a mk2 focus. Current one is the Ford - 6000 CD - but it doesn't have blue tooth or aux. 

Budget upto £300 ish. 

Thank you.

I'd recommend the Pioneer AVH5800DAB but don't know if you have a Halfords discount card because it brings the price down from £399 to £339 

But still too much, have a look on Car Audio Centre, you can get a cheapish one and get a new Fascia plate for your car, really good place, I got my Fascia from there but Stereo from Halfords.

when i used to have my 2008 focus i put a single din jvc radio/cd in had bluetooth aux etc . easy to fit just get the autoleads connection kit around £25, and a patch lead for the make of the unit you put in, so you don`t loose the steering controls £5 for the patch lead. if you put a double din unit in you won`t need to buy the extra plastic trim for it to fit.

For a mk2 focus to take an aftermarket double din headunit it still has a plastic strip for either side as the factory unit is wider than a standard double din as saw here:

Good radio at an affordable price is a Clarion FZ102E  Don't knock it, as rugged as it comes with Aux and USB but no CD. Easy to set up without all the gimmick's, can be found for around £56 if you search for it.,

I've just installed an Xtrons in my Zetec S, really easy to do as it's just plug and play and it fits perfectly and looks factory fit. It's got sat nav via micro sd card that came with it, bluetooth, can hook up a reverse camera which I'm doing today, it's touchscreen, and also comes with the canbus box. It's also a doddle to use, I'd highly recommend and at £169 delivered its unbeatable value.

Hi guys i am getting a facelift 2009 focus estate within the next couple of weeks and want to upgrade the radio i have been looking into the xtrons as they look smart and have lots of good features, are yours still working fine and would you recommend them? i want bluetooth, satnav ideally but not a mega issue and DAB if that helps? Cheers

No clue but does say it has Google so would be a matter of connecting to WiFi or WiFi tethering with your mobile and save the offline Google map.
