Holy crap!! You are amazing!!! They all look really really good! I think the one closest to what I had in my head was the second to last one in your first post, but the SVT mesh is doing something for me for sure! And I finally see what you were saying about the rear lights looking off. I think the tail lights on the sedan are too big to have lower lights so close to them. I think maybe I will just skip the lights, shave the lines and change up the diffuser for now.

What do you guys think about the black lines on the bumpers? I know it looks more euro and all that but I feel as though it will look a bit off since my sedan doesn't have the black lines on the sides either.

Also, should I keep the side markers if I end up shaving off the lines?

I tried to rep you Brian, but I apparently repped you for something else too recently. I'm sorry!

U can also get a front which looks like it would be a direct fit to ur front, but again this is even rarer than Hen's teeth,
they took me a year and a half to finally find some and buy for a cheap price

front cost 110,,,rear cost 75 all with mesh n lights
also have now just managed to get hold ov the front grille,,30 cheap

then u can go crazy after doing that bumper n paint inside ur call

So would the smooth UK rear bumper fit on the back of my US sedan?

It doesn't look to me that sedan bumpers and hatch bumpers are interchangeable at all. I could be wrong though.

I dig that rear though, I'm just not sure how well it would match with the lines of a sedan. It might be too much and clutter up the back end because of the sedan tail lights. I do like your car though Hardy!

Sorry man, I had it with me, I should have made time to install it on your computer.

Pyroinsa, this is the first I've heard for the euro "face lift" fogs and I like them.
Two questions though; Are they a drop in replacement for the stocks on an mk1.5? And I hate to questions like this but know I did do some looking first, do you know of a place in the states to purchase them reasonable other than hunting the fore sale sections?

Facelift fogs:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Focus...item1e7a90443e
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Focus...item1e79ea5ddd

ST170 fogs(so you know the difference):
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Front-Fog-...item35c68dcb38

North American 1.5 gen fogs:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2005-2007-Fo...684b6e&vxp=mtr

You will see that the European fogs are not a direct fit into the American bumpers, you will need custom bodywork to make them work. You will need to check ebay.co.uk to find a seller who is willing to ship. You will not find European-spec stuff in the U.S. You can also try bat.inc to see if they carry them or other sites like fordparts.uk

Thanks, I do see the difference any may try to fab up a bracket to fit the facelift lenses to my American 1.5 if I ever decide I have an empty weekend. Thanks, you are a very helpful member.
