Not without a lot of work it's not the right body

Yeah, lots of work.... but that would look soo hot though!!! I would love to see someone attempt to do a complete body change for an 00-04. I know obviously the hatch is a completely different angle but with the right tools, vision, time and money I bet it could be done.

oh it could be done. but if you havent tried something like this before dont youll probably end up ruining a 2000 pound ( almost $4000) body kit. i got some plans for a custom bumper on mine but ive done bumper repair and custom work before. plus with the kit the doors would have to be spliced together as would the fenders and quarter panels and so on. not worth the risk to try yourself, and a shop would charge you an arm and a leg and a first born if they would even be willing to try it.

Front bumper

ive seen some zx3 with a front bumper off this site
http://www.magnatuning.ro/en/product/7305/Ford-Focus-2-RS-Look-Front-Bumper

so it makes me wonder if i couldn't make this one fit mine?

Youd think it would be simple enough to do the front bumper and maybe side skirts and pair that with a svt rear bumper with a diffuser for a similar look, not too sure about the spoiler though because the rear IS different.
any input?[???:)]

You have an mk1. To do that euro mk2 Rieger you'd need to convert your whole front end. Hood, lights, fenders. And even then it may not quite work cuz iirc the euro mk2 has a different frame structure than a mk1.

i saw a picture of a mk1 (maybe mk1.5) focus once with the rs, or looked identical to, front bumper on it and that's when i stumbled across this guy.
at the time i liked this one more but after a while i began to like the idea of the RS bumper better. seems i will never be able to find that photo again.
