Mud flaps?
 
I have a stupid question. When I ordered my Focus I chose the option for the exterior protection package. The picture shows molded "splash guards" but my car does not have any. Is the picture wrong or did I not get what I ordered? Is this something that gets installed by the dealer prior to delivery? Seeing as they originally prepped the wrong car and tried to give us that one first (whole other story) I wouldn't put it past them to miss something else. Anyone know?[?]

Yes that is a part of the exterior protection package. It is a dealer installed package.

Exterior Protection Package (Dealer) - $245
Front and rear mud flaps; Rear bumper protection

That's kind of what I thought. So - my dealership is continuing its ineptness. [?|]. Should be an interesting conversation with them....

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)

It could be an honest mistake too. My dealership had forgotten the door sill plates. I took the car to the service dept and showed them the sticker showing that they were supposed to be installed and they did it right there on the spot. Frustrating- a little, big deal- not so much.

Hi 1st Ford,

Keep me posted on how things go at the dealership; I'm happy to step in whenever you like and see how I can help.

Thanks,

What's the bumper protection? Is that the stikcer that's supossed to offer protection on the bumper when the hatch is open?

If you don't have this I highly recommend one and it will be a paint saver one day. Nice part and I'm sure the company is making a killing selling these at $50 a pop but worth it.

The bumper protection offered in the package is a clear piece of vinyl with Focus barely visible in it-

That's what I figured and you get that and the splash guards for $245? Anything else? My salesman bought us the guards for $100.

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[slap]
