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.

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,

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.

Fibreglass copies in general tend to be very poor quality, dont have proper mounting holes n dont line up properly, require a lot of modification trimming n sanding etc and tend to snap or crack easily

nowhere near the quality you'd get from buying genuine and usually not worth the hassle

this is why they so cheap lol

Agree with Charlie, fibreglass parts tend to be cast from moulds made from original parts therefore any inaccuracies of the mould translate to the castings.

There's a Polish seller on eBay that sells cast parts and the quality and fit is apparently shocking.
