Lenny, it looks like some silver trim on the lower grill, i think you may want to try German ebay and see if you can find the part number for it?

thanks mate,
i think the latvala may have been a 2008 special edition

Personally I think it looks hideous with the silver bits on it like that!

Thanks for taking the time to search it for me mate,
think ill make do with the zetec s one, i suppose it will be original over here anyway because the zetec s focus isint available from ford over here only by import so it will stand out as it is.

they are nice lol i think they were also an option on the uk titanium spec models and i think they are 17'' if that helps you track them down mate, ive just checked ford microcat and they are 17'' alloys here is the finis number: 1527073 around £150 per alloy which isint a bad price for 17'' alloys, shame im not so good at tracking down the grill lol

alkyz89
eww not keen on those alloys atal!! and mixed feelings on the grill, looks ok on the silver but not sure about the other colours...
focuscolin
Lol thanks len, I know they fit them on the zetec with the sport pack they look so much better then the standard 16"s, I've found some on eBay but no one wants to exchange my wheels plus cash. I think if I was you I'd stick to the grill you got mate looks much better. Just get some st wheels on and you car will look sweet.

I actually like the German Zetec grill a lot! Nice find, did you manage find one Lenny?
It is nice but I'm not into the chrome bits and like alkyz said it looks nice on white / light models but i think my blue zetec wouldn't like it!
Think il stick to spraying my gloss black or even hydro drip in dark carbon.

[b]I havent managed to find one of the german grills mate,
going to purchase the lower grill same as yours and spray it gloss black, i done some research on the latvala and apparently it was a limited edition model launched in july 2008 and it was the start of the facelift mk2.5 release in germany and styled by WRC driver ''Jarri-Matti Latvala'' who was part of the ford team at the time and the idea of the chrome sections on the front grill was to give it an RS apperance since the mk2 RS wasnt released at that stage nor was the zetec s mk2.5[/b]

[b][img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/discussions/ford-m-sport-cad-design-540x334.jpg[/img][/b]

[b]so i reckon the styling of the mk2.5 zetec s stemed from the limited edition focus latvala. and was sold in the uk as the zetec s but over here in ireland you cant buy a focus zetec s from the dealers, you can only get the zetec so the zetec s is a rare sight over here,
it has to be either imported or built.[/b]
salsheikh
you've done some research there Lenny. Looking forward to the pics mate.

Lenny, If i get hold of a decent priced ST lower grill for my Zetec il be selling mine!
Ive priced up the top small one just under bonnet, I'm looking at £75.00 which is 'ok' but still looking for cheaper, just gotta wait for payday and then find a cheap lower ST one.

the lower st grill wont fit your bumper mate, it is wider by 4 inches and the curves are different you would need an st bumper to fit the lower grill in to.
but the upper st grill will fit your bumper no problem,
and here is the upper grill from ford and cheaper than [s]£75.00 [/s]
buy it from valeautos for £27.00 i bought my full zetec s kit from them last year, genuine ford dealer

I just checked on dimensions of it too and you are right i didn't think, i saw the picture and quickly compared. Bit gutting but I'm sure il get around it somehow or give mine a better look.

I looked into Hydro Dripping like you said, i got a decent quote...
£100 get the chrome strip and top grille dipped in dark carbon,
Then i asked just the top grille and lower and he said £170.

So I'm currently unsure right now.

As for the ebay link, that's great pal. Thanks. I was just a little weary about buying one without actual eyes on seeing it. But that go in my basket too. Nice one.

So whats your plans when you get the Zetec grille?

Thanks mate,
i was originally looking for the lower grill from the latvala which is the same as the zetec s grill in your PDF but it has the additional chrome lines around the side pocket vents,
but it isint available anywhere so im just going to purchase the zetec s one next month instead.

here is a picture of the latvala grill

[b][size=3]Hi mate, [/size][/b]
[b][size=3]i know Valeautos haven’t got an actual picture of the part on the e-bay listing, but they do list the FINIS number of the grill so if you copy the finis number and paste it in to google you will see some images of the part, its brand new and over £40 cheaper than other sellers of the same item, but you will need to transfer the flip badge from the existing grill to the new one, [/size][/b]
[b][size=3]i will be doing this myself in the next 2-3 months so ill do a guide on changing the upper grill on the mk2.5 focus and also one for transferring the flip badge from one grill to another. [/size][/b]

[b][size=3]and the plans for the grills are to get them sprayed and lacquered in gloss black along with the fog light surrounds, [/size][/b]
[b][size=3]i received the Zs upper grill yesterday in the post, so ill be purchasing the lower Zs grill from European parts in Germany next month, [/size][/b]
[b][size=3]then gather the money up in my pocket for the body shop to spray the grills and fog surrounds but considering the full Zs kit was sprayed and fitted for 400 i reckon around 80 for spraying the grills would be sufficient. [/size][/b]

[b][size=3]their is only one place in Ireland that i am currently aware of that performs the hydro dipping and they are 346km away from me, so that would be two trips, one to leave them their and another day to collect them so i would be travelling a total of 1384km on fuel then pay the guy around 200euro to hydro dip them, [/size][/b]
[b][size=3]it would look epic but a bit much for me to be honest, [/size][/b]
[b][size=3]if a guy sets up a hydro dipping business closer to home though i would get the lid of the battery box, fuse box and induction filter lid all hydro dipped in carbon print, then stick a yellow Mountune decal on the top of the air box lid, would look the business. [/size][/b]
[b][size=3]so bottom line mate, [/size][/b]
[b][size=3]late july to early august i will have the grills changed and in gloss black, [/size][/b]
[b][size=3]late august i will be carbon wrapping the bonnet lip in gloss carbon and purchasing a set of these CSR light brows from germany and getting the body shop to colour code them to the body. [/size][/b]

I like the original zetec s grill over the special edition one personally, think the silver makes it look tacky like the silver strip on the bonnet, gonna get mine painted to white soon for that ST look :-)

Would the zetec s lower and upper grills fit my focus without the zetec s body kit? Or would they look silly?

they would fit no problem mate,
im in the process of performing this upgrade myself, i think the lower grill from the zetecs bulges out a little more than the other lower grills, its not that noticable though and it wouldnt look unusual on your car mate.
are you painting the grills before fitting or anything?

Brilliant, I think ill get just the grills rather than the whole zetec s body kit, cheaper option as I wana get the engine remapped first :-)

No I wouldn't get them painted, ill keep em standard, I just want the silver bonnet lip in white and my alloys black, then ill be happy... For now ;-)

will look good mate,
if i trace back far enough through my content of posts,
im pretty sure i said the same thing as you just have,
almost two years ago lol

Well Lenny i ordered an ST upper grill for my Zetec via your link, cheers. Im now unsure whether to spray the new S girls gloss black or leave standard as they might be dark enough. Currently my Zetec grills are a dark dark grey not black so if the ST grill comes black i might leave it HOWEVER i saw an RS today with the lip pure black (where my chrome lip is) and I'm in love, however i don't know if it'l look out of place as the fog surrounds and vents on RS are black so this compensates for it.

I just don't want spray it and be like ah jesus it doesn't look good, then again. Il let you guys know when my ST grill comes.

Will look good mate,
i plan to get mine sprayed black so it will give you an idea of what yours would be like if you got them done on yours,
i plan to get the fog surrounds and both grills sprayed in gloss or low gloss black, in early august and bare in mind your existing upper Zetec s grill is worth atleast £30 when you get it removed.

Well if i get it and don't think its dark enough il spray it. Il more than likely do that next month too while i have funds. See for your colour car i think the fog surrounds would look great in black, but mine wouldn't. So by doing it like an ST same colour code as body itl make the big grill a little more sporty.

I have a question reference my zetec s bodykit... Iv seen kits with the front bumper/splitter where on the sides it has grill type design.. why hasn't mine got this? am i missing some sort of sporty bumper here because mine looks bog standard.

do you mean these side louvers ?

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/zetecslouvrs.jpg[/img]

if you dont have them then i would log on to ford etis and put in the reg of the car to see if it is a zetec s from the production line or a zetec that has been upgraded to a zetec s [url="http://www.etis.ford.com/vehicleRegSelector.do;jsessionid=0E5BC1CA80A62AF7037DF5C93C6D5943.fcvas509"]http://www.etis.ford...6D5943.fcvas509[/url]

ive just spotted yours now mate,
i think it has a front lip from looking at the image or it could be the parking lines on the road reflecting on the body work causing a shadow to seem like a bumper lip but if it is a front lip its not a zetec s one mate,

[IMG]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/discussions/orig-1.jpg[/IMG]

Ah jeeze i think mines a fake.. well an upgraded..

your focus is a true zetec mate,
but the front bumper matches the body work perfectly and your missing the front lip so my guess is the front bumper has been replaced on it but they failed to fit another front lip, every thing else is in place except for it

Paddy H
Cheers for that Lenny, you wouldn't believe the mini panic i just had then, i thought it was a Zetec S and did look into it and ask when bought. But i wondered why i saw all these other Zetec S with the bumper on and mine so standard. Appreciate that.

you can always fit the front lip to it at any time, here is a copy of the ford fitting instructions,
if you purchase it new from ford you will recieve the rivets for fitting, but if you purchase second hand then print out the PDF and PM me for some ford rivets. i also have a bottle of grey tiger seal if required lol
here is a link to the PDF fitting instructions [url="http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=3411"]http://www.fordowner...&attach_id=3411[/url]

Yeah i will have give the lip a miss till august i think. Due to possible window tint, respray fog surrounds, chrome lip, few accessories for interior etc.

Really appreciate the help though whilst i was on my phone. Nightmare. I wonder why previous owner changed it.

Thank you.
