Auto climate control 2013 focus se

I have a 2013 ford focus SE with the standard knobs for climate control. Would it be possible to buy an OEM part, or perhaps a aftermarket part that would allow me to install the dual automatic climate control (This part: BM5T-18C612-AJ)?

I havent seen the standard knobs for the se but I dont see y you couldn't get the oem climate control. I find it to be one of the coolest parts about the inside of the car lol

I think it would be quite possible to swap the unit out, however, I think it would be entirely something different to get it to work. The connections are likely to be different and I'm sure the ECU would have to be flashed with an IDS.

It will likely require you to replace multiple other parts to get it to work correctly.

My guess would be that the requisite sensors are not installed in the vehicle to feed information to the climate control module. Even with the module, it would not receive any info to adjust fan speed or heat/cold.

I'm betting theirs a lot to swap out and might not be worth the cost. I've seen this attempted on other cars and it's a big job since some sensors and motors aren't compatible with each other. If it's a simple relatively cheap mod then let me know as I would do it.

Best bet is to swap the entire dash from a car who had the dual zone...
