Accessories for Focus ST Line 2016

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I want to buy some accessories for my Focus ST-Line, namely;

Illuminated gear lever knob
ST-Line red grill badge
Steering wheel cover

I have been on the obvious places such as amazon and E-bay but what I've found so far has either been cheap and nasty looking or the reviews from people who've bought these items have been pretty scathing about the quality of them.

Is anyone able to recommend a website where I might be able to buy items such as these? Thanks very much.

By the way, the steering wheel cover would be something like this -

I would order it, but the ad states it's for the ST-Line 2018 onwards and mine is 2016. I can't find one that mentions my year specifically, but I like the look of this!

Well, I ordered a few bits and made a few small changes. Red gear shift insert, foot rest plate and ST Line grill badge.

I've still got a few more bits to come but this is what I've done so far..

Thanks Matthew. I ordered the ST Line badge from a UK supplier, link below. You can get whatever colour for the text and background and there are 2 sizes.

If I were you, I'd go for the large. That's what I've got on my Focus and as you can see from the photo, it isn't overly big!

 

I've attached the badge using black cable ties through the honeycombe grill, which is ok but not ideal.  It's really fiddly to get the cable ties tight and then get the cable tie 'socket' back through the grill. I notice that you have a similar grill to me, but you might be more skilled at this sort of thing than me so you might not find it as tricky as I did.

 

So I'm going to reattach the badge using a different method! I've ordered some black polymorph pellets so I can melt a small plastic shape which I can fit into the honeycomb grill before it hardens. Then I can just Gorilla glue the ST Line badge onto the flat surface of that. I'll update the thread with some photos of how I get on.

Rubber mat inserts arrived today. 17 pieces in the pack which fits pretty much every pocket in the Focus. Not going to use all of them otherwise it would be overload, but have put a couple in the car to see what they look like...

Thanks mike, i will have a look and most likely order one.

Matthew. I forgot that I had also ordered these, but they arrived today. 2 x black metal St-Line badges, pretty high quality to replace the current silver ones that cam with the car as stock. 

If you want these for your St-Line I got them from amazon or Ebay. They came from overseas so delivery took a little while. IMG_20201017_095053.thumb.jpg.0feb2da45521426aa856b56872ae7f1c.jpg
