Did you get a front license plate mount? I'm still not clear where where they mount. Hope it's not in the middle of the grill.View attachment 2176 View attachment 2177 View attachment 2178 View attachment 2179 View attachment 2180 View attachment 2181 View attachment 2182
I attached pictures of my black ST2. Someone please let me know if they work, if I did something wrong, or if I broke any rules!!
More pictures will follow, and once I get my dash cam, videos will be posted consistently to youtube!
i agree. it's physically hot as well! we just bought a 2013 Escape, white with the light interior, and theres a huge difference in the temp when you get in! it was 90+ degrees out yesterday, and when i got in i couldn't touch the steering wheel for a few minutes!PS the black looks hot!
great point! time to hit the road!Your pictures came through just fine. How can you be on-line when you have this thing in your hands??? I had a 05 Roush Mustang Sport with the 4.6L no charger, and to think the ST is as quick or better is awsome! I'm thinking my "pre-ordered" Race Red ST2 is just around the corner and I'm getting a chubby waiting for it!!!!
Thanks Jay. Can't tell too much here. I've already told my dealer not to mount any brackets until I have had a chance to check it out. Now go enjoy your ride!here is the front grille closeup (i apologize for my reflection being in there). I don't see any place predetermined for putting the license plate or a license plate holder on. The standard focus (any focus owner, please correct me if i'm wrong) and the 2013 escape (front grille based on the focus) have dimples in the front that are aligned with bosses for self-tapping screws. this does not have those.
my suggestion would be to find (or order from ford if you have too much money) the self tapping screws they use on the regular focus, and make your own bracket. parts of the grille are 'filled in', and using some rubber grommets you could screw in a license plate with no issues.
i've attached a photo of the grille, and one with lines showing where the grille is filled in, in case it's not clear. i'll investigate next week how dealers intend to put front plates on.

if anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. i'll research it to the extent that i can, and try to give answers and suggestions!
Sounds like some tint is in order.i agree. it's physically hot as well! we just bought a 2013 Escape, white with the light interior, and theres a huge difference in the temp when you get in! it was 90+ degrees out yesterday, and when i got in i couldn't touch the steering wheel for a few minutes!
