Aftermarket rear valance PLEASE!!!!

I don't mean to be a hater.... but with all the recent threads with people buying China bolt on exhaust tips that are hanging below their bumper... it's becoming more and more obvious we desperately need this.

Here is what I could find for what's currently out there ( sort of)

3D carbon rear (have to buy the 4 piece kit minimum) Too busy, not enough focus on the exhaust


Loeder - from Europe... aka expensive and really over the top


Roush concept car - not bad but not in production


Of course there is always the up coming Focus ST. I don't mind this look but center exhaust is a little much for me


In my honest opinion we need something less flashy and just more of a clean look.

Here is my best example. No crazy fins, and it has a nice outlet for a decent exhaust setup.

I agree. We need some options, and everyone who has created something different isn't offering it.

The European Zetec S has the best body kit by far.

I do like the EU version as well.... but pricing is going to be high once again. Plus you'll have to get the upper portion of it painted. So more expense. That and I might be slow but I can't find that thing for sale anywhere.

You got that right! That Zetec valance would do the trick.

I'd even be happy with a understated single exhaust or dual exhaust like the Fusion. I don't want to look like a tuner, just a little more refinement out back.


Until a simple, finished solution is available I'm sticking with my stealth Rustoleum High Heat Matte black painted exhaust.

Yeah, a simple rear valence with single exit and a proper exhaust tip would be ideal. Nothing too flashy, just finished looking.

What's irritating is that the Zetec valence looks good and, most importantly, already exists. And it's OEM! If Ford isn't going to offer it on the US-spec car in any configuration, at least list it in the accessory catalog so that we could add the thing at a halfway reasonable cost. Trying to get this thing from Europe (if you could even find a dealer that would sell it to you) would be ludicrously expensive. Shipping alone would be prohibitive.

+1 Contact http://www.european-parts.net/catalog/index.php they have the parts for the Zetec S. They don't list them on the site I emailed them.
Only thing holding me back is shipping to Australia.
Rear valance 160 EUR
Front spoiler 245 EUR
Side skirts 275 EUR

Actually, the parts are listed in the catalog. It says they were added today (perhaps in response to your request?). Thanks for the info.

So you're looking at 228.69 + tax/duty and shipping.... Spendy

It would be cool if we could get a group buy going

You would probably have to paint it too so that's + cost.
