I think so Johnny. All STs (to my knowledge) have a body colored grill surround and the silver rings around the fogs. I'm peaking out the window at mine as I type...lol

What "line" are you talking about, exactly ? The body character line down the side, by the door handles ? Or that pinstripe ??

maybe he's talking about the side moulding as the piece down the middle? and ALL ST's have a color matched grill from the factory.

Not sure what line you are talking about, but, side moldings are a function of the trim level choosen, e.g., S, SE, or SES. Pinstrips are put on by the individual dealers, often when cars go into inventory, so they can add an extra $100 to the invoice for a $10 stripe.

That's weird, a Focus ZX4 ST with a regular front. I'm guessing it was in an accident, and they replaced the front with standard ZX fare, not the ST trim.

Very well could have had a new front facia and grille installed and they just used the wrong parts ?
