Does anyone know if newer generation ford radios fit older fords, as most of you know i have a mk1 focus which just has a regular cd player, it should have a 6disc cd changer but it must of been swapped by previous owners.
I want the proper radio for it but finding one for right price and condition isnt the easiest so i want to widen my horizons and some of the radios in mk2 focus are pretty smart, good few sony ones about.

Why not just go after market, usually cheaper and better.

Was thinkin that aswel but not sure what to get, i see lots of dvd ones but id probably never use it.
If i go after market id want usb input or atleast memory card input, front AUX input would be nice aswel.

Of course you will need a fascia and maybe wiring harness.

That seems good and cheap but i dont want to have to get a fascia others i could just use the one in my fiesta, i think it looks crap with a fascia. I want a double din or whatever you call it.

Aren't the focus a 1.5 din?

This wouldn't look bad

I dont have a clue, your probably , i dont understand it all lol.
That looks better than typical fascias, i will think.

Just hada thought, will i lose my steering wheel controls?

Most radio will lose steering controls, some will support it with an interface box, but you are looking at a more expensive radio + interface.

I looked into this for both the C2 and focus and decided it wasn't worth it and I haven't missed it to be honest.

Here is a similar thing on my focus, but I think the hole/fascia is bigger on the Mk2, but yo get the idea.

Definatly bigger than mine but looks well.
Iv just been offered the 6disc in dash cd changer for £60 delivered so will have to think about it, i loce the one in ny fiesta so if i change my mind it wont be an expensive switch.

Personally I would take an mp3 CD player of 6 disc changer any day, actually thats what happened with the focus.

But I can see why people do like to keep standard items etc, for that price you can't go to far wrong and if you want to change it later you can.

Post subject:  Re: ford radio question?

Thats my thinking, in the fiesta i had a memory pen which is brilliant but i want the standard look in the focus.
I will sell the current which will give some money back. £60 for this other is cheap enough so if i re sold id make money back.
