    Do i really need to buy this??

    Installing this in my 08 ford focus.

    Sony Xplod CDX-GT550UI CD receiver - Features & Specs at Crutchfield.com

    I clicked on the "crutchfield master sheet" and this popped up

    Car Selector

    The ford focus in dash reciever kit and antenna adapter are free which is great but then it shows this.

    PAC Ford Radio Replacement Interface Allows aftermarket radio installation in select 2005-up Ford-built vehicles (model C2R-FRD1) at Crutchfield.com

    130 dollars. Do i really have to buy this to install the HU???

    Does your car have a factory amp? It looks like this harness allows you to maintain the use of the factory amp. It also says it allows you to maintain rear seat controls.
