Ford Focus RS Spoiler – Maxton Replica

Here’s another great item to spice up your Focus ST

Maxton Replica Ford Focus RS Spolier

Is your standard ST spolier just not big and bold enough for you? Maxton-RS

Only one way to remedy that and that’s to go with the RS version.. Original ones are silly money and just not that easy to get hold of due to the demand but the replica is a definite worthwhile alternative.. Ok it’s only gonna come ready primed but even if you pay for a professional spray job it’s still gonna be way cheaper than getting one of the originals.

Now if you fancy a bit of DIY it can be quite easily sprayed by yourself as most people just do them Gloss black which is a really cheap colour to buy whether you have a compressor and spray gun or if you are really daring and patient it is possible to just do with rattle cans.

Will it fit directly on Focus ST?

The Ford Focus RS Spoiler is pretty much a direct fit.

When fitting all we had to do was slightly open up the area made for the brake light (used original from the ST spolier) and also had to make slightly more room to allow the hose for the rear screen washer pipe to fit through and fit snug in the apeture for the light.

All the screw holes lined up almost perfectly with only the smallest amount of jiggling to get it finally into place..

Completed Fitment

Once the spolier is fully fitted and you stand back to admire you work the difference it makes to the overall look of the car is quite astounding.

From the rear it just makes the whole car look more purposeful and somehow lower and wider and from the side view it just appears to change the entire profile.

I do speak from experience here as one of these was added to my son’s car by us two and it’s turned a reasonably stock looking ST into something really closely resembling a genuine RS. Maxton

Review of Focus ST 225 Custom Gear Knob

This is just a quick review of my recent purchases.

The Focus ST mk2 comes with a fairly nice leather wrapped Gear Knob as standard which is fairly decent anyway but for those of you looking for a change or simply want to make a switch just to make it feel a little more personalised  i’ll give you my thoughts on the M-tech Custom alloy i used for my own car.

Description:

This is a machined alloy Gear Knob with either a large ST logo or the 6 speed shift gate with a smaller ST logo on the bottom
Approx :90MM in length and 40MM diameter
Weight: 250 Grams
Price: £31.00

Available with different finishes including: Machine polished or Brushed.

Carbon wrap combination can be applied as an addition with an extra charge of £8 per colour: BLUE, BLACK or RED

The Gear Knob is a direct replacement and will screw fit straight on and has an indent to allow the original gaitor to fit.

Pros

Very nicely made. Engraving is superb

Great price and Delivery free

Fits very well

Looks great and fits in with other trim in the Focus ST

Cons

Due to being solid alloy gets very cold in winter

Rating

In my opinion i rate this very highly and have found it really nice to use and just a classy looking extra. Highly recommended.
