Interesting..It's still going to take awhile for the ST front clip to grow on me though..I still prefer a Titanium front end with a bodykit lip over an ST bumper..but like anything it will probably grow on me.

I love the st look and wouldn't mind something like the TrackSTer has going on in the front. I think next paycheck I might buy one of these, somebody has to be a guiniepig, right? Besides, it very well could be a good quality alternative to the OEM part swap.

I asked the seller about the process of installing this bumper, he just responded a little while ago and says it is a direct swap.

Hmmmm.....

A buyer still needs to source the euro passenger side plug cover next to the grill.

Direct swap meaning drop the stock bumper and fit this aftermarket one without any issue vs something like
this:
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=305741

Which will run you $900+ in the end and requires a lot more than just a replacement bumper. Granted OEM parts are always the better choice when you can use them, I dont have an extra grand floating around to drop on my bumper....

I love the st bumper, I think the 2014 front will be similar, so maybe I would wait... ;)
