Bonnet Vents

Can anyone give me an idea of how much it would cost to get vents fitted into my Focus ST bonnet? Or would I be better getting an RS bonnet?

I do have an RS bonnet I could use but it's got a lot of dings in it and would need a total respray too. I already have the vents but thought I'd ask for a bit of advise as I haven't done anything like this before.

Wes is right, get a quote from a body shop, I'd get a quote for the repair of the RS bonnet too and go with the cheapest.

Good mate of mine does mobile fitting service for RS bonnet vents into ST's, and other cars too. I would estimate he's done hundreds of the things, so lots of happy customers out there. He's based in Doncaster but travels all over the place on weekends, Nick aka RSParts

Can get prices if you want?

I wouldnt be so sure, there are some fast 1.6's out there!:) I was reading that our american friends are getting around 400bhp from the 1.6 ecoboost.

i have RS bonnet vents o my car and i installed them myself B)

used the template supplied, drilled 4 pilot holes (one for each corner) and used a jigsaw blade to cut my bonnet

took all of 1 hour to do

i decided to fit an ST gauge pod/then changed that to the dash pocket (currently houses a charging port so that i can use a sat nav or use a multi media device to display the torque app)

I thought it was an ST you owned Sal as your on the FocusSTownersclub too.

Well mate I take my hat off to you. Don't think I would have the nuts to set about my car with a jigsaw and Stanley :lol:

i would love an ST but couldn't justify the fuel costs - i do have a heavy right foot and get around 350 miles from a full tank of diesel :blink:

it only looks like an ST but doesnt go like one - if anyone pulls up at the lights i'll just take it easy and cruise B)

BTW, i'm on lots of car forums VW/Nissan/Seat/Ford and Pug but not Vauxhall - forum !Removed! i think is the term :ph34r:

from a thread on another forum:

Standard black abs vents £80 fitted, painted and laquered gloss black vents £95 fitted or colour matched vents £100 fitted

this is for a price guide only - contact Nick directly for the true price

Just mean like I'd be worried about getting em perfectly symmetrical etc

as Troy says,Nick is very good at fitting them and I have seen Jag vents on a Focus too...do it do it do it
