Yeah there is pretty much no air flow at all on the F.E. but the Gas Foci need their air to be directed into the active grille shutters/ and radiator/ condenser/ etc, so the ST fascia is a better choice from that stand point without hacking up the grille of the electric to mimic the openings on the ST or even the base Focus grille.

I finally saw one of these on my drive home from work. He was behind me so I only saw it thru my rear view mirriors. It was the same color as the image from the OP. I actually really like the look front bumper now. That and it had the xenon headlamps, really makes for a classy looking focus!
