That appears to be the Zetec S rear valance, so it is a factory piece, however its not available in North America.

Getting it shipped from Europe is cost prohibitive. Even just looking for the lower center grille piece with the euro plate mount costs a fortune for shipping alone, let alone the purchase price of the part.

We finally get the same body as the Euro version, and yet again, we're stuck begging for parts to it...FML

I understand different regulations for equipment and whatnot, but we can't even get the same body kit? WTF Ford? Why do you treat us like this when this is the country you originated in?

Rant over. I'm glad that the others have a nice looking kit.

lots of companies originated here, but like most people that get money or companies...

they forget where they started and the roots that made them what they are

What do you guys think about these? Feel free to showcase any other available mods that you have found
Yea to the diffuser, although we should not have to spend money to finish our cars. I get passed by a '12 hatchback on my commute to work, and his rear bumper (therefore, mine too) flutters from the force of the air getting caught in it. It looks ridiculous. The Fiesta I pass is more complete in the rear!
