3M tape is made for automotive applications, won't mess up anything, will hold for years, and if you need to take it off all it takes is getting a fingernail underneath and then peeling it off.

But I can understand completely where you're coming from, so no sweat, you do what makes you happy, it's your car and I'm not here to tell you what to do with it, lol

There are clones of lots of cars out there. I think it is perfectly fine if someone wants to do the front of their car with the st bumper. I like it too! Don't really care if it is 'real' or not, it's still just a car mod like any other. plastidip or paint or wheels or what have you, we do with our cars as we want. I have a '67 galaxie convertible that is trimed as an LTD even though there was never a production LTD convertible. It's still the same car. Thanks for the list and prices. For those who like the LOOK it is a viable alternative to buying the whole car. I'd like an ST but don't want to give up on the SEL features such as heated leather seats, Tan interior, color, gas milage, etc. Seems like the trim kit would fit the bill!

That would be $921. And I'm sure shipping from Europe is going to cost a lot more.

No one is denying that. I wasn't telling him I was going to make fun of his ride for not being an ST if he leaves the badge on there untouched. I was only offering a suggestion for him should he choose to NOT want to be just another clone of a car.

I've seen plenty of times the same thing happen whether it's classic cars or modern cars, customizing is customizing, and people can do what they please. I saw no harm in offering a suggestion should he choose to want to differentiate his car from the ST.

No sweat Feta-mgp, My statement happened to follow yours but was not meant to be associated with it.

No problem guys. I think Mac is just upset that he has the red-headed stepchild of the Focus platforms and doesn't have any OEM+ parts to choose from.
