I was a bit wary as it seemed a bit too good to be true so i insisted on meeting. The seller is a young lad clearly funded by the bank of mum and dad who tried to create an ST replica with mk2.5 parts on a mk2 needless to say it went pear shaped and he's given up on the focus completely. The parts aren't stolen from what i can tell.
We met at a neutral place for the headlights, I bought the headlights online already before we met for £360 including bulb and ballast that's a major deal considering that one headlight without ballast or bulb can sell for £200
I haggled the price of the bumper started off with a cheeky £150 got it for £200 traveled about 5 miles back to his home and collected the lot.
He seem to be an amture breaker, has a lot of other car parts but not much knowledge of doing anything on a focus.
Not 100% sure yet if i want to fit the ST bumper i'm still thinking about it. If i was to fit the ST bumper i would loose my DRL, i bought it mainly to use as a template for cutting out the holes for the jet washers on my ZS bumper, once i've done that i will sell it if i don't fit it...
Before i decide though i need more information on DRL's for ST models, does anyone know of ST DRL's?
Whatever option i choose later on when it comes to purchasing a triple R composite splitter, it will not be backwards compatible between ST and ZS bumpers so tough choice!!
