Very smart !! How much more have you got planned! you are in the exactly the same boat as me on this, even the same car and colour :-P you just have a push start and I don't :-( !!!

How many LEDs are on the reg plate ones please (the brighter one) ??

yes mate, its a shame i didnt realize these were phase 1 st225 & not phase 2,as i bought these way before xmas,as they were cheap & locally,my future plans are
powerfold mirrors,as you can see already bought for £65 each brand new off ebay plus post,
st225 spoiler,just waiting for my colour ,nearly bought it,but outbidded by 2 pounds lol,
rear discs conversion,as its drums at the moment
Eibach springs to make car sit better, even with 18's its like on stilts.
twin reverse mod, easy as i did on my mk1.5.
DRL'S
maybe zetec-s rear diffuser if it fits on stock bumper
St225 led rear lights ,the genuine ford ones.
interior lights are sorted , now all leds.
if i can find st3 recaro leather , but that could be hard & costly,
i'll leave it for that for now lol!

the diffuser does sit over the existing bumper. 
however if you get it from ebay be careful. i nearly fell into the trap of getting the one that is slightly smaller and you was to get the zetec s body kit  in future it wouldnt match up right, you would need to buy the one that has the rear skirt attached . just wanted to make you aware. NOT this one - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS-ZETEC-S-5DR-08-11-REAR-BUMPER-SKIRT-LIP-SPOILER-TRIM-ST-RS-SL-/221209428947?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item33811c03d3 
look at last pic on description you will see what i mean...
if you knew already sorry ....

i was looking at that one from the same seller & thought the bumper is different as it has a lip & not flush like the stock one.but thanks for early warning, i am weary before i buy, i generally ask tech gurus on say here,ffoc focusowners etc.so can you tell me which one would fit on stock bumper with hardly any modifications?

I am the same!!! Items sit in my watch list for about a month before I go for them lol!
I haven't found the rear lip seperatly on eBay how we would need it... However I am just going to buy the full zetec s body kit all at once save more , and doing this I know I will get the rear diffuser I need... Did you just want the diffuser , I could possibly get you a link but you are looking at around 150 - 200! Another reason also why I am getting the whole kit is because the diffuser we need should come attached to the rear skirt (thats why ones you have seen look flush ) and would look odd without the rest of the kit...

full kit , this comes with the difuser we need !! annoying because most sellers use the same pictures . but i spoke to them and its what we are after - (they may sell rear seperatly if you ask them) - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121093356520?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 

and here is the diffuser on its own sorry little bit more pricey than i though - http://www.fordonlineparts.co.uk/product/Ford_Focus_Bumper_skirt%2C_rear%2C_%28%2B%7C-_PDS%29%2C_3%7C5dr_-_2008_-_2011_-_1517906_F1517906-156 
do you see what i mean about the rear skirt attatched.
