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?

I suppose it would be easy to make a replica,

but i figured since i need to purchase the ZS lower grill i thought i would get a price on this one and if their isint much difference in price id buy the german version,

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.

I want those alloys :-(

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

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.

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

ford-m-sport-cad-design-540x334.jpg

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.

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 £75.00

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

Hi mate,

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,

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.

and the plans for the grills are to get them sprayed and lacquered in gloss black along with the fog light surrounds,

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,

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.

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,

it would look epic but a bit much for me to be honest,

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.

so bottom line mate,

late july to early august i will have the grills changed and in gloss black,

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.
