I got the rear OEM flaps at first and when I saw how nice they were I ordered the front pair as well. Like others have said, I think about $85 from the local dealer.

That's the link to the exact set I bought. I actually just ordered a set for my mom's car, too.
Thanks for this man I have the OEM's and wish I'd seen these first.

Just realized these from ebay are shipping from China. Ack!. Usually I tend to avoid anything outside of the US due to complications with shipping international. I.E. Customs, Super long delays. 7 to 15 business days can be an entire month waiting.

Ahh well too late now. Hopefully you didn't have to wait that long bacon..

I had these in about a week, if I remember correctly. Didn't take much time at all. Just never order any from Korea, I waited 10 weeks for a wheel I ordered for my last car, and then it was the wrong color!

Regardless, glad to see some Fanatics taking advantage of this. Feel free to add some rep!

If you guys are going with the molded splash guard, dont forget to aply the clear vinyl protector on the painted part of the car that the splash guard will be going over.

I remember seeing a post in here about this. This clear vinyl will protect your paint so if you take the splash guard off one day, your paint wont be scuffed or sanded.

^ Good advice. But I usually just make sure I wash behind the splash guards every time I was my car, which I try to do every 1 - 2 weeks. Yep, might be a bit much, but I love a clean car.

FYI. Got mine lastnight!. It was too dark to really sit down and put them on but I did test fit one and it fit like a glove and look OEM!. I'll install them this weekend!.

They look good and if anyone doesn't like the white Ford Logo it seems like a little denatured alcohol and a dry cloth and it would probably come right off.

Glad to hear it.

My mom ordered the same for her '12 Focus SEL. They came in yesterday, so I was a good son, and put them on for her after work. Took less than 10 minutes. The hardest part is lining up the lower bolt in the hole in the rear guards. A word of advice, get down under the rear of the vehicle so you can see where the clip is that the bolt should be going into, then you just squeeze the guard until the holes line up, and bolt it back in. The top bolt should like up with no issues.

Looks really nice.

BTW, that's a great looking car. The black out trim looks pretty mean with the red. Pondering how my Sterling Gray Titanium would look with the chrome blacked out.
