depends on your budget Elias!

first port of call for me is always alloy wheels as it changes the way the car looks so much

lower it

zetec s skirts/ST bumpers/side skirts

exhaust

If your on a budget,

Lower it 40mm on ford approved eibach springs,

Rear camber adjustment bolts,

Tint rear windows,

ST rear spoiler

And a nice set of 17 or 18" rims

Will look sweet :)

Keep away from the Poland kit bad reviews,

Closely examine pictures of the rear diffusers from japan, there not full wrap around,

If purchasing from ford, a ST front bumper is 80 pounds cheaper than a ZetecS front lip,

Best option in my opinion I purchasing the parts from breakers.

ST and ZetecS rear spoiler are the same

Aswell as the side skirts ST and ZetecS are the same but the side skirts differ between 3 and 5 door

Good luck :)

I've had a look there myself and strangely enough,

There's nothing breaking on there at the moment, these parts are very sought after,

I give up on being outbid and bough from ford directly,

Here's the rear spoiler from ford anyways,

. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Genuine-Ford-Focus-ST-Large-Single-Wing-Rear-Spoiler-2005-1689072-/310787747947?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item485c64b06b

If you contact nationalcarclearance they can supply you the full kit aswell as latest pricing.

I presume that's including spraying because I bought all the parts for around 1,000pounds excluding shipping,

Still that's a good price to spray and fit aswell,

Did they give you a list of parts for the price?

The zetecS spec exterior parts,

Rear diffuser, 250-300

Rear spoiler, 150-200

Side skirts, 300-350

Front splitter, 250-300

Front upper grill 50-100

Front lower grill, 100-150

Side fender S and boot panel badges 15-25 each

For all that new from ford without fitting your talking around 1200-1400

ROM wasn't built in a day though,

And this discussion is making me sick t think of what ive spent personally.

ahahahhaah i believe you but as you said before mods are addiction, and in general cars are addiction which cannot be cured. They gave me that price without spray or fitting, only the parts.

Well side skirts are like hens teeth on the second hand market mate,

So prepare to purchase them new,

Front upper grill can be got second hand but front lower grill that will be got new

Front and rear you can get second hand if you wait for eBay,

Once the kit is fitted you will need to protect it with some custom built mud flaps they cost around 40 pounds stop stone chips on the skirts, bigger wheels then lead to 40mm lowering and the rear diffuser crys out for a duplex exhaust

I thought Id be happy when my car was complete but no :lol: I've gone and bought a map import and I'm doing it now,

If I was doing it again,

Id lower it, bigger wheels and an ST spoiler job done,

Car modification is a blind faith, a cruel waste one big tempt faith, but it always gives that Sweeet Sensation :)

The one place I know that supply every type of body kit and part for the focus is european-parts based in germany,

Its run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts

There a bit pricey on some parts but cheaper on others as most ford parts are manufactured in Germany.

Here's a link guys

It's all part of the fun finding and waiting for the bargains to pop up on eBay! Spreading out the process of completing your car !

I think I will be going for the side skirts brand new !

Also want the ST honey comb upper grille.. Can't find that though !

Where can I get these custom mud guards ?
