On the focus with internal sensors you'll always have an internal alarm exclusion switch on the drivers side door catch that fits into the area where the window switch is on the passengers side.
On any other model with just door, bonnet and boot sensors there won't be an internal switch.

A bit off topic for the moment but would this fit on a 2008 mk2 focus?

Ooooh, I've always liked the look of them. Now the question is do I get it in black and grey or just black?

Just to confirm the one you linked isn't what Lenny has. Lenny has the Ford Zetec S Bumper Extension as shown in his Guide

http://www.fordowner...ting-guide-pdf/

What you have linked is an imitation bumper that will fit any standard focus.

as in the ebay link:

It doesn't really look as good as the genuine ford product, which isn't helped by all the different badges and stupid exhaust on the blue one :P

Not meaning to put you off but there will be a big difference in quality

Yup sorry mate meant to say Lenny has the genuine one n the one you linked is a copy. But yeah was just saying it will fit.

I did see a complete genuine zetec s bumper on ebay not long ago, ready in black but with slight damage. Think it only went for around the 100quid mark

What you want is one of these.
Direct replacement for that horrible black bit at the bottom of the bumper.
You could always paint it two tone.

I'm not sure, I realise there would be a big difference in quality from a fake chinese version, and for £100 it doesn't seem worth not to get a genuine ford product. I really like the look of the zetec s bumper extensions, however with the cost of the part itself, plus spraying and fitting (which I wouldn't really trust myself to do just yet) it looks a little bit out of my price range.

Sorry I'm late seeing the above messages but all has been well advised without my assistance.
I reckon the cost of parts for the mk2.5 focus will be lower in january 2013 due to the second hand market moving towards the mk3 Zs
And shop around for a panel beater car paint expert. I got my full kit sprayed and fitted last march for 450euro and it matches perfect.
Took me 18 months to gather the full kit in the attic of the house. It is expensive mod but worth every penny mate.
I'm hoping to finish the Zs next month with the grills and black headlights.
So if anyone is interested in mk2.5 titanium grills upper/lower or chrome mk2.5 headlights without H7 & H1 bulbs PM me.

This is the one I saw before. Appears the auction ended and no one bought it so may be worth contacting the seller asking if he's still got it knocking about. Would require a minor repair:

Or theres this that doesn't need a repair but does need a respray:

Thats the ford kit for £160 plus they want £108 to paint it which you could get done cheaper elsewhere. I suppose Lenny is the man for fitting advice if you ever need it :)

Lenny have you seen any/many cars with these down round your way? I've seen quite a few up round the northwest on Southern plates with this trim on the rear and what looks like the cabriolet coupe front bumper, enough to make me think it may have been a factory option in RoI, but I've only seen one I think on a Northern reg. It's a real nice kit I think, both front and back. Was looking for a link to one on DoneDeal.ie I seen a few weeks back but it must be gone.

As for the intrusion sensor issue I raised a few posts back when I was last on, see below a pic (I lifted from a TalkFord thread I posted on a while back in case an acknowledgement is needed!) of the switch that Clive was talking about beside the driver's door handle...on the light unit itself you can see the sensors point out beside the maplights and there's an extra plug for the wiring on the unit.

It seems ford fitted the convertable body bumpers to the 2008 mk2 focus both saloon and hatch prior to the release of the mk2.5 in june 2008
