Aftermarket Stereo replacement

Has anyone installed this in their 2012 Focus? I'm wondering how well it actually works.

Quick search reveals this link: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=259554 I've actually read through it and it's pretty informative as to what some of the aftermarket possiblities are. Toward the end of the thread (last 8-10 pages) people started trying various kits like the one you posted.
They seem to be geared toward Euro spec '12 Focuses. I thought I saw somewhere a focus owner who got one of these to work.. don't know if that was here though.
Hope this helps!!

These type of units are nice because they look factory. As with most things, you get what you pay for. I've installed a few units like these in other cars. Most aren't bad depending on how many features the car had factory. Over all they just look pretty, and would only suggest for people with basic needs.

I am clueless with stuff like these but I was right there when my friend helped me with it and everything was plug n play and worked right off the bat. I bought mine from a American company located off California because they had one year warranty since I was skeptical about it but it's fantastic and all my friends always complement on it.
