    Not if you want a CD player and stereo, all that stuff. I don't think any exist, there is no market for it. Why not just run a 1/2 din preamp or signal booster, like an audiocontrol 3.1 or 4.1 . Then you can just make your computer run everything.

    Or get a normal preamp, not indash. Just set the gain right so your volume control works good in your system. Get an XM PCR or modified xm direct, or sirius whatever. Since regular radio sucks :P You could always get a tuner card for the pc. And run a 1/2 din superdrive.

    Crutchfield picture of the dash kit for a focus.

    From what I can see, that looks like a 1.5 din space. Try a ruler. Single DIN is 7x2. if it's got 4" of clear space, thats a double DIN. If it's 7x3, thats 1.5 din. If you can STUFF 4" of gear in there, make your own dash kit and install the thing!

    I take it remolding your dash is out of the question?

    and no, no 1/2 din radio that i am aware of

    why don't you do a slim loading dvd/cd player in the dash like a bunch of other people end up doing....and they do make FM cards for PCs....but I'll agree with dave2.....radio sucks.....
