Hey all,

I'm a complete newb when it comes to Focuses, so I was hoping someone could give me some advice.

When I bought my car, the previous owner had had a very minor fender bender, which left the front bumper cracked. I'm planning on replacing it, but I'm not sure if the bumper I'm interested in will fit on my model.

For reference, I have a 2012 Hatchback SE - and this is the link to the bumper I was considering: Ford Focus RS Look Duraflex Front Body Kit Bumper 113411

Any help would be much appreciated!

Not sure on that one. Looks like rockauto.com actually carries one that looks relatively stock for 267 is the price I saw.

Being your car is a 2012 you need a bumper cover from the model years 2012-2014.

The RS was first made in 2016. So to use an RS front bumper you would probably also need to swap out 2015 and newer fenders, hood, and headlights also.

Ford gave the Focus a face lift for 2015 so the front and rear parts are different from earlier models, even though the under carriage those front and rear parts attach to are basically the same. Front parts are supposed be the same underpinnings. At the rear there are other differences that limit using older parts that center around the tail lights.

Id say go with an st bumper I know for most models they just go right on
I agree, but keep in mind it needs to be a 2013-14 ST in order for it to be "bolt-on"

Yeah thats true i didnt think about that. It would still be easier though to get the st oje anyways because it still shares a lot of common parts with the base model focus. Rs I believe is like a completely different headlight wise and everything

I see the RS style bumper on rebuilt ST's that show up on CL here in the Kansas City area pretty regularly. It must be the cheaper cost to source.
