looks just like the first mk2.5 zetec s that was released in germany in late 2008 called the ford focus latvala named after their WRC driver, i had tried to trace down the lower grill myself but it was a limited edition model.

I think I prefer the ZS grill without. I thought about applying a chrome strip to mine as I have some spare, but I quite like the grill without it.

Lenny you said in a previous post you were interested in the grill how about this one http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1423.l2649


Thanks for the link mate,
ive just bought one from european parts in germany their last wednesday for 76 euro including postage,
they were 3 euro cheaper than Paynes ford dealers and Vale Autos Ford Parts so i saved a little but not a lot.
that one in the link doesnt look to be a genuine ford one and i wouldnt mind if it wasnt a genuine ford grill but its more expensive than a genuine ford zetec s grill because paynes are £47.70 excluding postage

cheers mate. They were my original idea last year so they been on for a while. Im thinking i like the grill and after mixed views but i might change it to thicker chrome strip. currently 4mm and might go for 10mm.

cheers

Defiantly something different

yes mate,
for the zetec s lower grill its Finis:1529043
ive nothing against Vale autos Ford Parts or Paynes they are great supplier's of genuine ford parts and their customer service is 100%

But since i was importing the grill to ireland and i wasnt in any hurry to recieve it, i purchased it from european-parts in germany its still a genuine ford grill but a few euro cheaper thats all.
here is a link to european parts listing, they use DHL and dispatch the same day, so depending on what price paynes give you for shipping, germany may be cheaper for you too.
