Your favorite front-end

Which front-end on the Focus do you think is more eye-appealing? I like the original, because IMO, it has a more sporty demeanor.

EDIT: When I say choose your favorite, I'm talking about stock.

tsk tsk tsk, we just went over this in my thread :-D

well of course its the 05+ because it looks so more agressive than the previous model.

i just hate that there are no real aftermarket exterior parts for the 05+

I voted 05+... not for the chrome grill, but just because the grill needed some border, of any color. The previous style, to me, just looked unfinished and chintzy. In all honesty, when looking straight on at the two, I can't help but think that on the original, the hood looks like it could be bent and rolled upward toward the windshield really easily.

Yeah... maybe I'm crazy...

If i had an 05, it would look exactly like this, so nice....


Love the black headlights, black grill and most of all the cf lip...
