 Possible to install a head unit in this car?

its an 08 ford focus sedan. Guy at best buy said i would have to rewire my ac system and buy 150 dollars worth of parts (off the internet he wasn't just trying to make money). Is this true? Because im using a LOC right now and its trash. heres a picture of the dash. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://0.tqn.com/d/cars/1/0/O/-/1/ag_08focus_dash.jpg&imgrefurl=http://cars.about.com/od/ford/ig/2008-Ford-Focus/2008-Ford-Focus-dashboard.-2UK.htm&usg=__2_mMDKnl4H543la9AlHxX8SAuyw=&h=851&w=1280&sz=223&hl=en&start=0&sig2=qVEMSstlfvVMZR4TXhwWsQ&zoom=1&tbnid=m15SiYdvcLg_AM:&tbnh=123&tbnw=158&ei=s9_3TdCeGtGdgQey3JXwCw&prev=/search%3Fq%3D08%2Bford%2Bfocus%2Bdash%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN%26biw%3D1366%26bih%3D679%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=280&vpy=119&dur=294&hovh=183&hovw=275&tx=99&ty=103&page=1&ndsp=28&ved=1t:429,r:1,s:0&biw=1366&bih=679

you should be able to install an aftermarket head unit. I believe you can find the exact wiring harness and faceplate dash kit from metra online.

maybe best buy just didn't want to hassle with the installation or saw that you had other factory installed components and didn't want to be held liable for tinkering around!

My wife has a 2010 focus.....There would be a rather large expense putting another hu in there. i sure as hell could do it but it woukld be expensive. Not sure if this one has sync or not but my wife's does. The dash kits cost half an arm and then to keep the sync functioning along with the steering wheel controls....No thanks. I would rather do a high end loc and not screw with all the other crap.
