I don't know the specifics of the units that you quoted, but I am 99% sure that the guys who told you that it wouldnt work with your car are either lying or unknowledgeable. The units are made to work with focuses, not just focuses of a certain trim level. Also, since they are part of a molded dash replacement trim, they will fit whichever trim level you have.
Obviously I'm biased towards doing things aftermarket, but I think you would be fine ordering these from amazon. Feel free to ask me any questions that you have and I'd love to help you out. You can check my post history for my setup.
