if you are going to do it, I would recommend getting a name brand item. Better to pay a little more up front rather than doing it 2x.

Yeah I was also thinking about waiting and hope some one like pioneer makes something similar. I just want a more factory look I looked at the mantra radio kit and it just wasn't my cup of tea.

One thing to think about if you buy something like this is that it will remain only in your focus. If you're ok with that, then rock on.

However, I would say you should consider the metra dash kit and a reliable, proven double-din unit from Alpine or Pioneer or Sony or some other company. This would allow you to take the headunit with you to another car in the future.

I've just installed one of these - Seems to work well so far. If you have Sync you will loose that, at least with their cheapest model.
The steering wheel controls still work, it comes with a remote so your teenager in the back can drive you nuts with it :)
I didn't hook up the TV, you'll need to purchase an antenna to do so, mine didn't come with one - we don't have much here anyway unless you use cable.
There was no installation manual so I took photos as I went along and have them as a .pdf if anyone wants to look.

I would love to see the images of the install. I have been watching these units for a long time, but haven't had the balls to buy one.
