I will say its different. I like the svt one myself. The bottom part looks ok, I'd do something w/ the top where the grooves are. Its hard to keep filler in there, no matter how much prep work you do.

I have a focus, had stock bumper, then svt and an RS now.
I also have a mazda 3. In your photo, I think that kinda diffuser looks way out of place. Just what I think. Perhaps a good quality render of the two molded together will make it seem better?

That diffuser is way too high, good idea but no.

Just get either an SVT with SAP diffuser or a Euro

Im not feelin it. Save yourself the time and effort and pick up a SVT/SAP/Euro bumper. They match the lines of the focus better.. because they were built for it.
