Post 2017 SE Sport conversion

Gentlemen!

Just bought a new Daily 2017 Focus SE 6MT. I am in the process of upgrading the over all looks of the car. From my understanding the Sport rear valance will fit my car. What about the front lower valance? Searched the forum and didn't see any 2017+ sport conversions. I don't see why it shouldn't with being the same bumper as a 16.

I have already bought and powder coated Snowflakes gloss black and put them on the Focus and needs that little extra now.

Thanks!

Arthur

Hey, I am currently in the process of doing this swap on my hatch. As you said, there should be no issues with changing it over to the SAP. I've been told by multiple people that since the MK3.5 never had any front changes, rear changes, or skirt changes (except for the facelift) that everything should fit as if it was factory. You may need new clips/and or rivets, but I'm not too entirely sure on that yet until I look under the car. I'm actually going to be purchasing the last two pieces to the front end tomorrow or friday (the grille and the lower valance)... I'll keep you posted! Rear valance has been painted and I'm putting an ST wing on the car on top of that as I have the newer ST wheels on it as well. We'll keep in touch!

I don't think the rear piece is interchangeable with the sedan and hatch. It is for hatch only.

Absolutely, they made the Sport package for the sedan though and will need to ensure I buy for the sedan when I find the correct part number for it.

Short bed, fleetside. Never been too big of a fan on the long beds or stepsides but I definitely donít have anything against them!
