Love the honeycomb grill, been thinking of changing mines to that (I have the chrome bar one)

All you need now is red ford badges, makes the car look more blended in and much meaner!

I really don't like the grill on the other fiestas its too old man for me.  I really love the sports grill though is very smart.  I'm not sure how red Ford badges would look on a red car, like the contrast of the blue one personally.

Black is all I'd swap too, had thought of it for mine, but tbh I'm not up for modifying much on this car if honest. Just makes more of a pain when it comes to selling :P

I'll take a photo of mines with the red/chrome DMB

(the red is more towards orange on the new red colour though, but still blends in enough)


The main downside is the big chrome ring, with the red badge looks like a massive O on the front since the badge blends so much.
cheaper than de-badging though..


Car is away atm but once I get it back...

Here is mines with the red DMB


as you can see, it's a bit off the correct red tone but blends well, but the big chrome O stands out too much =[

if I am being perfectly honest I think I prefer the blue logo.  Not sure I really like that.

Well it seems people are grinding bits off their grilles for some unknown reason :P I had the little 'S' on my prefacelift since I bought it, and it was a bugger to get off when it went back it was stuck so well on just 1 little point.

Unfortunately because of the design of the front grill you need to sand part of it to give a flat surface otherwise there isn't enough surface to stick it onto.  Also by doing this it makes it flush with the surrounding grill.

 

As far as how sticky it is, it is pretty sticky and, having used similar items before, will be pretty much on for good.

If you get the OEM one's they're sticky enough to hold, but they are nearly £14.

When I tried getting some off eBay they were huge, so ended up just nipping to Ford. Those being the same size though aren't half bad, just depends how sticky they are, Ford's are practically bonded to the grill they're so strong. Doubt I'll spend on another for the new car though, just leaving mine largely stock, did too much playing with the last one :P

 

They look pretty smart though in fairness on the facelift.

Added the S badge to the front and rear of the car.  Darved out a space in the front Grille so it would sit flush similar to the ST's.  What do you think?

 

looks great i had the same idea, =) did you buy the stick on ones? And could you explain or shoy the tool that you used? i guess you just sanded away the protruding plastic that was in the way so that the badge would fit flat on the plastic ?
