Maybe if a mold of the last section is made we could (not so)simply fiberglass in the middle section. It would be a small rectangular piece but it would give it the original look.

Doesn't look bad with that middle fin removed. Would look better with a thicker mesh though. Wouldn't stop me from buying one.

I have silently been following this Group Buy and have to say I am surprised the final product is not what was promised and a participant had to be the one to let everybody know the vents are not the same. ED knew of the change and went ahead without informing participants in the buy and the interested community at large.

This certainly is not how good business is done. While it is good to see a company work with the Focus community and produce parts, shady business practices are disappointments the community does not need.

At this point, IMO, buyers should be made whole with a fix and ED should update the first post with accurate photos and an apology to the board for not timely informing buyers of the change to the bumper before shipping the product.

In this case I agree. Since a noticeable change was made to the look of the bumper everyone in the group buy should have been informed of that change and the option to back out given at that time before anything was shipped to customers. Unfortunately not doing so is poor business and there are no excuses such as being to busy that are acceptable. That being said I still like the bumper and will probably still get it if the final fitment reviews are positive.

I think they could have said something and I think most people would have understood the change. BUT, coming from a person that didn't even consider this bumper until recently, I still think it'll look good. Mind you, I never had my heart set on a true-as-can-be replica of the RS bumper so take that with a grain of salt.

F2 made a replica of the RS bumper and made their own changes.

ED made a replica of the F2 bumper and make their own changes (by accident I guess).
