Hmmm I like the rear...but that doesn't look anything close to an actual buddyclub2-why did they name it this?

I like the way it looks but I have a freind who has a civic and we just insatalled the buddyclub kit, seems to me to be a cheap fiberglass, and very flimsy. My scorpion kit is alot thicker and stronger, but maybe its differant with the focus, Look into and see if it is layed fiberglass or a spray fiberglass. If it is a layed fiberglass it might be allright but the spray is very weak and flimsy. First time you scrape, that will be when you will need to buy a new bumper.
But it does look nice though.

Stay away from Fiberglass. Nothing from horror stories.

I guarantee someone will say "YOu dont know what your talking about, a well done fiberglass kit is better than urethene"

Yes, however, do you really want an extremely heavy kit or do you want a kit that isnt too heavy and will still last?

Go with polyurethene kits. Im sure you can find the buddy club in poly, just have to look harder.

IT ONLY CRACKS WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO DRIVE.

AND WEIGHT WISE, WHAT ARE WE TALKING MAYBE 10 LBS IF YOU ARE LUCKY.

I KNOW MY FIBERGLASS FRONT BUMPER IS THICK AND IS LIGHTER THAN THE STOCK BUMPER.

There are very few urethane kits for the focus- no buddyclub- I've looked...just the Kaminari, WW, or APC are the only ones I think worth looking at. Though if they made the evoIII in urethane I would have bought that...too bad, darn had to get the Reiger
