The unit I have would fit easily. If you was in the UK I would say pop round and let's install.

If I did not have front sensors and self park, I would keep it in my car

NO ONE BUY THE MOVEWELL UNIT!

After asking them if my replacement had shipped, I got this response.

Hi,Bradley :
I'm sorry that we have been terminated cooperation with amazon yesterday,we have no way to provide the customer service ,our department has been dismissed yet,also we will not reply your email in the future, we have refund to your amazon yet.Really sorry for all inconvenient caused to you

Best wishes and have a nice day!

Regards

Steer clear of the Movewell. I still have not received my refund. I will contact amazon this morning and I'm sure they will make it right.

Back to the drawing board. I'm debating on buying another one of these same style units or going with the metra kit. I just think these Chinese units look much more OEM then the metra kit does. Plus $$$.

Additionally, I fear the compatibility of these Chinese units(like the movewell) with our US spec focus'. With them not working. Everyone I have heard of running them successfully has euro focus'. . .

That is very disappointing to hear...I totally agree with you on the metra unit, it can't look any farther from OEM than anything i've seen.

I hope you don't give but I understand how frustrating it may be to deal with that.

Don't worry, I have not given up. I WILL be buying an aftermarket replacement. I don't mind being the Ginnypig as long as one of them works.

I hope you find one because I'll buy one if you do. I hate my stock system and I want to upgrade everything.

I was going to wait for a big reveal once I made my install thread but since you asked. . .



I have the stock six speaker system with two 12" kicker comp subs. And I have a cheap 1000 watt power bank amp the subs are probably underpowered but they hit way harder than I need them too so I'm happy. Although I have yet to hear them in the mk3 focus because my head unit was a flop. They sounded great in my mk1 zx3 focus though.

I may eventually upgrade my factory speakers but I have higher priority mods on my radar first.

I hope you wont mind but I will definitely be consulting you on my build when I get to it. I am looking at your setup and just drooling. I really want to know if you can get by without upgrading the stock speakers by getting subs and amps....I can not wait till you get this working so thanks for the sneak peak muh bruthuh
