Looks like I may be getting better audio soon, this stock system is a joke.

cost on the dash kit is approx 150USD so if you buy it at a shop you will prob be paying between 2-300USD


the only problem i am trying to figure out without ripping the car apart right now while my dash kit is on order is what kind of harness does the car use and does it require a antenna adapter?

WIRING & ANTENNA CONNECTIONS (Sold Separately)
Wiring Harness: XSVI-5524-NAV - Ford interface 2011-up
FRST-2 - Ford RSE/SYNC/THX Retention Interface 2012-up
Antenna Adapter: 40-EU10 Multi-App antenna adapter
Now ask yourself whether you want to wait for a steering wheel control adapter to come out before you do the install...

I'm waiting on AXXESS. Hopefully soon.

Here's a question I had on the wiring harness. On the instructions it states the following:

• Connect the Light Green wire to the parking brake wire of the aftermarket navigation radio.
• Connect the Blue/Pink wire to the V.S.S. or speed sense wire of the aftermarket
navigation radio.
• Connect the Green/Purple wire to the reverse wire of the aftermarket navigation radio.

Is this only necessary if you are installing a radio with built in nav? Do you tape them off otherwise?

Yeah, tape them off if your aftermarket radio doesn't have nav.
