    @Xtra It's about half the cost of the splitter itself for shipping I believe to the United States. As @onyxbfly said it really looks great on the car. Install was not easy at all - I had a body shop do it after telling me multiple times it wasn't made for my car. I don't know anyone who didn't have problems with that and also the manufacturer is not very professional with their communication. But it's the only thing really for our cars. It took me 12 weeks to get mine when it was only supposed to be 6. Because they forgot about my order until I followed up with them but they never admitted it. And then lied telling me multiple times they shipped it already to buy themselves time, but they didn't.

    Update 12/10: I've had my car like this for a month. But got the stripe done! I wish I went a bit thicker on the pinstripe but I'm still very happy with it. I also recently installed mudflaps on the rear which you'll see are only in some photos. Next will be sequential mirror signals that I already have but need to install. And also side splitters I bought from Aerotekk. For some reason I don't have many day photos. I guess I need to get better at that.

    Thank you I really appreciate that! Exactly, I'm the same way. Sometimes I dream and see what works and then don't execute - light the taillight stuff. But everything else I did move forward with. And agree, I'm not the biggest fan of that scoop - unfortunately there are so many limited options out there and I had a bad experience getting that splitter and the install process, so I didn't want to modify it any more lol. I've thought about the fog lights too! But it's more work than I want to do because you also need to get a different light switch for inside the car if you want it to look OEM.

    UPDATE 11/3: Finally got my car back from the body shop after dropping it off 15 days ago...what a nightmare. I do not recommend the SS Tuning spoiler to anyone because the bodyshop had a pain installing it. They first told me multiple times it was made for a different car and it wouldn't fit. They had to make severe modifications to it. But they were really great as far as they did it done and I absolutely love it. Wanted it to be two-tone satin + gloss black, but the satin came out pretty close to gloss looking. Which is fine. I'll likely be getting a center stripe down the entire car as well. Wheels painted black Rear diffuser custom painted body color + accent black gloss + black exhaust tips Front splitter paint + install Euro headlights are working fine for now, DRLs I still have to play with to keep them on Coming soon: Center stripe + rocker panel stripe Aerotekk side splitters Mudflaps Tinted rear bumper reflector + rear trunk emblems wrapped in black Small things, like I ordered dynamic LED turn signals for the side mirrors Super happy with how it looks!

    Thank you I appreciate the information. My car is getting worked on right now for other work, but once I get it back I'll play around with that and see if I can get something working. I honestly changed so much in FORScan I don't remember lol. But I know I changed the DRL settings from Dedicated DRL to Turn Lamp - and changed DRL includes parklamps from Disabled to Enabled. Along with some other ones to play around with it.

    Amazing! That'd be great if I could get it resolved without wiring anything differently. I appreciate the direction!

    I got both headlights installed (Ford extended the wiring harness for the driver side so I could install it). I finally got the DRLs to work by changing some settings in FORscan...however they only work while the car is off. As soon as you turn the car off they stop working all together unfortunately. And permanently unless I reset the system in FORscan again. I think it might have to do with the power outage or voltage, I have no idea. I'm glad I know how to get them to turn on but they don't last. Going to have to find a automative light professional/aftermarket wiring professional to see if they can help wire it separately because I'm stumped. Because I absolutely love them I think they look amazing with the regular DRLs.

    I had HIDs stock, but the Euro ones are LEDs. I am still using the U.S. lighting module. The high beams don't work and neither do the DRLs fully - Ford couldn't help so I likely need to go to an aftermarket shop.

    Soo I got the headlights in...and they're not 100% plug in play. I'm probably the only crazy person to try this but if anyone else has any insight that'd be greatly appreciated. So I got the passenger headlight in fine. Except only the low beam + blinker works. The high beams and the DRLs do not work at all. Which is primarily what I bought these for what the white LED daytime running light strip. The driver side headlight I can't even install...so the location where the wiring harness plugs in is on the European headlights is a lot further away than the stock lights. Meaning the driver side stock wiring harness won't reach at all. Needs to be a good couple of inches longer to reach. I happened to have a scheduled service appointment already at Ford. So I dropped the car off to see if there's anything they can custom do to A] extend the wiring harness and B] see if there is some sort of code or programming that has to happen in order for the car to recognize the DRLs and High Beams on the Euro lights. If anyone has any idea on how to possibly make those functions work that would be great. I just got a call from them saying they probably won't be able to change the computer settings (FORScan related I'm assuming) because it's of a different country. Pics below without the DRLs working. But you can see the comparison between the stock Sport light (on the right/driver side) and the oem Euro light (on the left/passenger side).

    Just got my front splitter in from SS-Tuning...I have some work cut out for me as I need to decide how I want it painted + installed (maybe all matte black + gloss black on the lip in the front center). Headlights should be arriving next week.

    You scared me...I didn't even know that was a thing. Luckily I just looked up the pictures with the part numbers and they say LHD on them.

    Thanks! I had to purchase it (wasn't cheap but made it easier for me to visualize some things) - it's from TurboSquid. The Euro headlights I had to go onto the German eBay site to try and find them. And messaged a seller willing to ship them to me internationally. They were about $950 total + $200 for shipping. I did a lot of research because there are other non-OEM lights on eBay and Alibaba from China - and they actually advertise many of them using OEM photos, when in fact the style they sell was a bit difference. You don't notice it until you really inspect the photos posted on the listing. So I had to make sure I bought used ones and that the part numbers were legit from Ford. Hopefully I get those in this week or next week and I'll post some photos! I'm hoping they will be just plug and play.
