ok I finallly got my new Focussport lip installed today after like three months. On their webite they say for those of you on a budget should opt for the fiberglass since it's cheaper or whatnot... it cost me 200 EXTRA bucks to have it painted and installed.

There are few things that I am not happy about with the install that could have something to do with the lip not being EXACTLY shaped right but I somewhat fixed it and will redo it this weekend sometime, you'll see what I talking about in pics below. Anyways here are some pics of it sitting in my crappy getting ready to be re-done driveway and the car is VERY dirty, you are warned... lol

Sexy ones...



Some of the ones that disappoint me...

This is the left side where the lip hangs pretty low from the body line where as it should be pretty close and the part that folds around the bumper started to crack and started to crack the paint but I think we got it in time and the sticky tape is all screwed up... which means I have to get a new roll...[:(]



Then we have the right side that is RIGHT with the lip RIGHT on the body line and the tape is perfect... there are already a few spots where you can see got chipped... these people who installed it kinda pissed me off but oh well...

Looks ok from far:) I'd be pissed at the people who installed it too. The paint costs money, don't they realize that. Some people just don't care if it's not their car. Car is nice though. the ST's are pretty quick. I like them.

What is going on with your grill(s)? Black housing those headlights man, it will set it off.

Focus Sport Front Lip

WickedlyFastST,

I have the carbon fiber version of the Focus Sport lip installed on my ST (see my photo gallery) and I did the install myself. Like you I found that apparently the lip is not moulded perfectly to fit the front end and sides. It still looks very good but several spots are not perfect.

Looks good. . . but you should have just paid the money for the SAP bumper and been done with it. . . [:)]

Obviously I"m biased so ignore me. It's an improvement. Get the install fixed and you'll be happy.

As I said on another thread I am not diggin' the front and rear bumper on the SAP's, I do like the rally style spoiler... I had one ordered for like 580 bucks thinking it was coming from the factory painted and come to find out it was just primered so I had to paint it on top of that 580 bucks I decided not to.

I LOVE my lip to death and in my opinion no offense beats the doors off the SAP front bumper. [:D]

SAP vs Focus Sport Spoiler

Max Focus

I do like the SAP front and rear, and probably would have ordered it from the factory had it been available on the 2005 ST. In 2006 however, the SAP front end alone cost three times what the Focus Sport lip cost, BEFORE paint and installation. I think I will just wait for the restyled 2008 Focus instead of investing more in my 2005's appearance.

Looks good, Matt. My Kaminari lip is the same way. It doesn't fit right on one side but you can't really tell unless you look at it and I know and it bugs the hell out of me.

Well levenseven, while looking at yours I see what wrong with mone... the middle should be all the way up to the gap in the lower grille then kinda fall to the body lines... [:D]

i like the bottom lip. looks cute.... but i would yank that shit out of it if i had it installed on my car. my car scratches in the bottom and with that lip on that would be a waste. i have the sportline springs... anyone have the same ones installed and a lip too?
