Oops! Yes you're correct.. I forgot about the ones up front.

To OP: on the plus side, if the dealer provides you with the guards, now would be a good time to put in a bit of protection film so the guards don't rub your paint away on the sides where it touches the fender/bumper.

I agree with YHO

Your car looks great. Same color as mine. (Is it just me or is the Ruby Red hands-down the best color for this car. It gives me a "warm-fuzzy" everytime I look at it. All other colors are simply distant runner-ups!). Oh, I've stirred the puddin' now! Mine is just a humble '13 SE. I'll bet your manual is a hoot to drive.

On another topic, anyone know how to add the round driving/fog lights. I got the low-end option pkg., didn't have them. I've found the lights on Ford parts web sight, but what about wiring and changing the switch, any reprogramming needed?

See where in the pictures he posted where he is drilling into the wheel liner? If your car does not have a hole where he is drilling, you never had mud flaps installed. That hole needs to be drilled when installing the front flaps.
(that is the front wheel liners..the rear already have a hole from the factory)
Those holes were present on mine even though I've never had the stock splash guards put on.

RonMaiden I like 'em and it did improve the looks IMO.

ptbish Can someone post a pic of a '12 or '13 HB with molded mudquards installed, or direct me to one. I'm considering adding them, but only if they improve or at the least don't hurt the appearance.

1st Ford The dealership is in a Northern Milwaukee suburb, I don't want to slam them personally. Yes it could have been an honest mistake but when added to the whole delivery issue it still is subpar in my book. Prepped the wrong car, gave us the talk and the keys when I discovered the wrong car. Then had to come back another day to get the talk all over again to get the right car since mine wasn't prepped. It did not endear us to them....

If you don't mind my asking what dealership did you purchase from, just curious. I bought mine from Saukville up by Port Washington only because they had what I wanted and haven't had good dealings with the ones in Racine.

I bought all of mine separate, I don't remember what everything cost. I want to say that the package was cheaper than the separate parts, especially counting install (if you had the dealership do it). Mine wanted over $100 just to install the splash guards.

Um, no thanks
