As the post above stated the units will work with any trim level (at least here in the uk).

The plastic moulded trim fits perfect, however there does seem to be issues with the steering control functions on the cheaper units above as we'll as the user interfaces looking cheap and boring.

If you have a basic trim level or just SYNC with no MFT it's an awsome upgrade

If you have sync and MFT I can't really see it would be worth it, however we do not have MFT here in the UK so I don't know how good it is. We get a tiny little 4 inch screen which is why I upgraded to the 8 inch touch fly audio.
