Can't speak for the OP, but I'm ok with one model taking style cues from other models. It's a Focus, not a Mustang, so while it can never be a GT500, I think it's kind of cool to play homage to one. I take issue when folks try to dress up V6 Mustangs like they're Cobras, but for some reason a Focus doing it doesn't bother me as much.

Like this guy's MRT Laguna Seca-inspired ST:

Details here: 2013 MRT Laguna ST - 249 WHP & 339 WTQ

But anyway, OP, do what you like best!
