I got mine, but it came after dark. No instructions. I hope it isn't difficult to figure out where these 3 posts and one nut go...

Shortest post goes closest to the front bumper on the left side of the engine. The taller posts go behind that short post and one on the rear of the engine. There are silver threaded studs for them.

The nut goes onto the stud in the middle of the engine.

Very simple install.

Thanks. I'll get out in the daylight and install. Really appreciate the help, +1 coming your way!

EDIT: I went out and looked, saw what you described, and installed by flashlight. I snugged everything down with a crescent wrench or nut-driver. Easy peasy! Thanks again!

No problem!

It really cleans up the engine bay, so enjoy.

For the 2013 Focus Titanium we lost, from the 2012 model:
1. engine cover
2. rain sensing wipers
3. auto dimming rear view mirror
4. Home-link visor garage door opener
That's just the US version. If you look at the US compared to the Euro version we lose, along with what I already mentioned above:
1. BLIS
2. DRL
3. Lane Departure Warning
4. HID head lamps
5. Warning Sign recognition alert
and probably more, but this is what I have found. Are you upset yet?
I know I'm pretty pissed at Ford at the moment, to the point of returning my car, and getting my money back, I had 30 days to return it, I have 2 days left. I'm going to go look at an Altima tonight after work. I may just jump ship since Ford likes to outfit their foreign cars better than their domestic version.

Is the relative price point the same foreign / domestic?

None of which would have made me not buy the car, the engine cover deletion is kinda strange, the part is not that expensive to delete, kinda plain looking compared to other makes, doesn't have the "Ford" emblem on it or color or decoration on it.

How did you arrange a 30 day deal to return it?

I am not a big fan of Nissan, make sure you really think it over.

So some SE's got them...I'm wondering now when they made the decision to go standard with the grill shutters they tried to offset that a bit by deleting those?

Did it come from the factory that way? I don't think so, since it was listed as a Ti feature only up to 4/16/11.
