right some more pics as promiced. really happy with it but i was not to sure about the front so i ordered an ST front bumper!!! de badged the zetec and tdci badges as well.


ST front bumper will look good mate,
The ST bumper purchased new is cheaper than the ZetecS front lip purchased new,
Also a zetecS upper grill costs 30pounds more than an ST one
And i think the ZetecS lower grill is 20pounds more than the ST one,

So overall you have saved around 130 pounds.

I think you will also require some ST fog light brackets to mount the fogs but im not 100% sure if they come supplied with the bumper from ford.
But ford will supply fitting instructions with the bumper that should list all required parts to complete fitment.

Look forward to the end results mate,
Gloss black grills would look good on the st front end.

Ah, see what you mean about the front end..

Having looked at the prices of parts though, Lenny is spot on about going for the ST look rather than the ZS which is really odd!

Found my grill (st) was cheapest from my dealer. Bought ZŠ lower from Allen Ford, but if you're got for the ST front end I think there was another site selling a genuine ST lower grill for cheaper!

Looks awesome though. The stance from the rear is nice!

I seen a white st up the road from me and the front end just looks well nice!! So I had to have it!!
Hopefully it's cheaper than a zs! dunno how much it's going to be yet got some people in the know so may get it cheaper!!
If I need the fog brackets it is not going to be on this week!! More expense!

Think a few people on here have done the conversion to the LED rears. Haz93 might be worth contacting as I believe he has sold his Focus so might have returned it back to standard and may have all his mods for sale. gumpy321 is another user who has done it I think.

Car's lookin great by the way...but get those centre caps sorted! ;)

Calipers and wheels look great,
Shame about the centre caps, perhaps DMB could manufacture some overlays to fit,
Some dark centre caps would finish it off nicely,
