I held onto mine, but I have all my stock parts still for the most part. If its broken though, I'd say go ahead and toss it. If you really want to put it back to stock when/if you sell it, go to a junkyard and pick up a new stock one. Or i'll sell you my stock 6 disk changer for cheep cheep cheep lol.
Crutchfield rocks!! :P

That's everyone! Got a nice system (sounds great) from Crutchfield and was a breeze to install.
Probably a weird question, but is there any reason to keep the broken stock stereo? Like maybe when reselling the car, some people would rather have the original parts (even if broken - I would definitely disclose this) rather than something added?

options I liked were RDS, so when I'm listening to the radio I can see what the hell the song is called and who plays it.
Bluetooth would be nice so I could use Pandora.
Crutchfield is nice.

|3Ford3i||Thanks! I'm looking at Crutchfield now. Was it the Sony CDX-GT270MP?|

|matmatician||Also, I see you're in Seattle! If you want any help, there are plenty of folks in the area that would be willing to help!|

First off, welcome to Focus Fanatics!
Second, just about any ol aftermarket radio should work to play mp3's. It's the head unit that was restricting your ability to previously. I Got my stereo from crutchfield, it's really nice .it was like 120 for a really nice Sony head unit that can play mp3s and stream Bluetooth media! It even comes with an adapter to fit an aftermarket radio.hope that helps!
