Thanks a lot for the pictures. They helped a lot for wiring in my sub and amp. I found that the easiest way to wire a remote turn on, ( JCR ), is to go to your local auto parts store (i went to autozone) and get an Add-A-Circuit, and just run that from an unused fuse under the dash. (mini add-a-circuit's are about $6-$12 depending on where you go).

Does anyone know if I change my factory radio to a double din touch screen if the sync will still work with it?

Oh and the mirror since thats where the mic is for the phone. Im also guessing that all the wiring is pre ran as part of the harness for the whole 08 foci series and i can just "Plug & Play".
So does anybody know if this can be done?

there is an aftermarket panel available. i priced one at a shop near me for about $54. you can either use a double din with it or single with a tray under or above. i dont have the part umber on me at this time however. sorry.
