Its cosmetic, you can tell there is no flat bottom beyond the bumpers lower edge and, its at the wrong angle with channels that are far to shallow.

it at least has a cutout in the flat spot of the bumper. maybe the old sti one can be moded to fit. i had it on my 02 wrx. Mounts would be a pia to figure out but i could see it working in where the muffler is providing you have a exhaust that removes the muffler from the stock location

What about a speed3 diffuser, those would have to be close to the right size

the DG motorsport is the only one i can find for the mazdaspeed 3. it looks solely cosmetic. Plus it has a spot for a license plate no bueno for our cars. Is there a oem one for the speed3?

Idk, we'll see what happens with it.
I've been thinking up some designs, but I don't think I could do any better than what others have come up with...I love the car as a whole, and it's a blast to drive, but Ford fell short in this area.

Well, maybe the cupholders, too, but who's counting?

All things considered, I'm really happy with the car. I only have a couple really minor gripes, all of which I can fix.

And my idea has nothing to do with a diffuser, just stiffening up the stock valance so there won't be any more flapping.

So, um, diffuser.

2012 Focus Ti.

I have had my Focus going on 7 months now and I have installed a FSWerks intake which has a great wicked sound, the 3dCarbon rear wing, and tinted the windows all around. Still not done but I'm taking time. Looking to find a rear valance/diffuser which will be my next item.

For some more pictures of the hatchback diffuser discussion, look at this from MS-Design:
