ST Style mesh for all us non ST grill'd cars?

Hey guys I dont know if there would be a market for this but I was wondering.

I personally hate the glossy black ribbed plastic or (bug catcher that's hard to clean the guts out of awkward corners) device, they call a grill on our car.

I was wondering if anyone looked into honey comb style ones to replace the fog light and center grill mesh with ST style honeycomb?

I know on the old focus they actually manages to fab some up from an F150 grill. Didnt know if any one hated their grill enough to try it or if anyone had done anything else to the grill/mesh?


Thanks guys.

You are thinking of the Zetec S grills from Europe, they exist already, but it's not exactly the same as the Focus ST grille given that the Focus ST is a one piece grille.

Im fine with not being a one piece, I just hate all the front end lines, and I can always vynl the pillars to be black if needed. Do they make the side bezels with for fogs or is S, very basic?

Those were the same exact grilles I linked a photograph to with the url of their source. They would be something like 254.9 Euro (332.55 usd) (303.33 Eur with 19% VAT) + 50.75 eur (66.42 usd) DHL air mail shipping, so basically around 400 usd unless you can find a less expensive source.
