Yeah I think it retains the upper screen, on the base model it becomes a glorified time/date LCD readout.

You're right, it looks like there's perfect space for the buttons, but there's one hangup: they are attached to the stereo. Here's a pic of the Fiesta radio taken out so you can see what I mean.



So the issue becomes.. can you take the buttons out of the stereo? And is there separate wiring for the buttons so they can plug back in?
