Anyone know if it's possible without cutting up the whole dash?

i hate that, along with new car design comes the frustration of changing anything. And i thought the newer Hondas were bad, that Focus looks 10x worse

that is really cheap for that much plastic

I was thinking like $200 for a kit

Only part I hate about this car. I wonder how it would mess with the SYNC system in it :crap:. Might just go get this professionally done...

Could just cut the dash piece and put in a double din....should fit pretty easy, I may do that in mine....but I am worried about the sync as well.

Metra is coming out with a module that will allow the "SYNC" system to still function if you replace the head unit.... I am not sure if it is shipping yet, but if its not it should be in 3-6 months...

If i find a part number I wil post it on here for you....
