That is decent of him. I know that if I was sitting on the engine cover and I knew someone local bought the car, I would give it to them as well.

does she want to mod it at all? maybe simple things like full exhaust / catback? or no plans for such performance mods?

Ya, Most people would. Others not so much. haha When I bought my car it had a Roush cold air kit on it. But to use the Pro-Cal tuner I need to have the stock air box on the car. Beast got a hold of the original owner and he said he has the stock air box. And he would sell it to me for $50. So ya, not everyone is as cool as Brian for returning parts for the car. haha

Oh well. Life goes on.

My car doesn't have it either, and I toyed around with getting SYNC, but Ford makes it damn near impossible to upgrade to it. I don't have the steering wheel controls, and when doing research I came across a guy that tried to upgrade to SYNC and put a new steering wheel on with the controls, and couldn't get it to interface correctly. I would say go with an aftermarket unit, but that's just my .02.

I don't really care THAT much, just wondered if it was a simple module/harness install or if it was a big deal. Sounds like its a big deal. Not quite ready to go double din either. Stereo isn't bad at all for stock junk. D:

I'm not an audiophile at all, and am perfectly content with the sound of the stock radio, I just wanted more features. I got a sony unit with Bluetooth phone and steaming, plus a little cubbie for my Ipod within the unit that interfaces on the screen. Plus it's only single DIN

Yeah I'll get some pics, but remember I'm in a Fusion, but it should generally be somewhat similar. You'll have to get a dash adapter that is massive, and is basically the whole center, but it's really only $50 at most, as all of the buttons reside inside and you are only replacing the cover. There should be a little screen at the top, that will lose functionality (at least mine did) but as it was used to control the old stereo it's not a big deal. The wiring harness seemed fairly complicated, and I think was $50 or something. I like this a ton more than the stock radio (as it only had CD, radio, and an AUX input.)

Fair enough. Like I said, the stock stereo is fine. I was more curious for bluetooth integration. If anything, I'll add a small sub for her.

Spotted this car a bit ago by my house on 14.

Pics don't show all that pearl in the yellow looks sweet.

Good kill Dan. Something tells me you're going to be "borrowing" her car a lot.
