Focus RS front bumper question

I already visited that f2 webside where the rs body is at for sale, however, is too expensive for me to buy the whole kit, plus the only part of my factory kit i dont like is the font number, the question is, will the RS front bumper match the rest of the factory zx3 body kit? or will it sit lower? thnxs :)

From the picture I have seen from it, it does't look like it's gonna be much lower. Someone that has installed the F2 front bumper on a '05 ZX3 could back me up on this...

yes the f2 bumper is quite a bit lower. in fact my car w/ the stock bumper even lowered 2" was higher than all the hondas in my school parking lot. now theres now theres only 5" of ground clearance, and theres no question that my car is lowered. i love teh f2 rs bumper.

umm..
it only seems an inch or 2 lower on mine.. these pics are taken from the ground, so it looks like there is a little more of a difference then i normally see
all i have is the F2 front bumper, and i think that it looks just fine

i have a 2 inch drop, and for the first week or so i had some problems bottoming out, but that was mostly just cuz i was careless and not quite used to it yet. now that i have temporarily put the stock bumper on (getting the f2 on repainted) my friends make fun of me for how cautious i am with it still. haha.
honestly, now that i have the stocker on, i feel a little less proud of my car everytime i look at it.. i really dont care for the stock bumper... i dont like of it comes in at the bottom
