Went down to Ford dealership to get the wife a 2016 Focus due to $6K in rebates. The dealer had a Fiesta ST and a Focus SE with sports package. She didn't like the manual transmission so we bought her the Focus and all was well...........or so I thought. I have been waiting for the new Raptor for a while and finally just got tired of dealers wanting $5K to $20K over MSRP, (I'm not that guy). After buying her car I mentioned how cool a Focus RS would be and she said to get one (even though I'm 47) and we could restore my 1st gen Raptor to showroom (with a few engine mods of course.....or at least that's what I heard her say) condition. Back to her car and 5 days later................I came home with a new Stealth Grey RS (cant stop smiling- wife says thinks I may be mentally retarted) for $2185 below MSRP and now she doesn't think her car looks as great when parked next to the RS. Got to keep the wife happy and this where I need the help.
Has anyone installed front and rear valence, exhaust, and wing from an ST onto an SE? Any challenges, problems (other than the car being a poser) or advise for me to make this happen for her would be greatly appreciated.
I would like to find kits or used parts to do this myself and stop hemorrhaging money.

Should be pretty straightforward, finding the parts may take a bit of time though.

There are a few people that have gone as far as converting the sedan to a full blown st with motor swap so it should be pretty straight forward as said before if you look at the st and the regular focus you will notice that a lot of the stuff was just changed in the bolt on period from the factory; but I would think would still line up. The rear bumper is actually in two pieces and you can get the lower portion of the bumper and switch it over, the exhaust might be different but I could not say for sure you probably could google the underneath of the two cars and see if it would line up you would probably have to change where the exhaust flange is where ours would come off of the downpipe. And as far as the wing goes it should be a straightforward swap because the cars use the same rear hatch.

Thanks for the help. It looks pretty straight forward to me too but that is how I end up getting in trouble. I know a salvage guy who should be able to find me the parts.

Avoid the poser look, Get back on her good side and Trade the SE in for a Alfa Romero Spider. :popped out:

I see you add no value in your posts and have too much free time on your hands. .....I"'ll play along. She already has a Charger RT. Her focus is just a commuter car.
