Has anyone changed the exhaust, the original is very visible.

Considering replacing standard rear diffuser and possibly switch to black muffler.

Also want the sport spoiler :blush:

This has always been an issue with the Focus chassis when it has a longitudinal silencer fitted and why I fitted a defuser to our lasses ST, the Mongoose Stainless exhaust also helped



No such extended defuser for the R design

I have been tempted to paint mine black or wrap it to make it less obvious

I also thought of painting the silencer box, not sure if the paint will last on the heat

The break calipers on our lasses st which has 285 bhp and is driven enthusiastically (average mpg is showing at 17.9) were painted in standard aerosol primer and paint and 5 years later I have not had any issues and they still look great, so a exhaust silencer at just 87 should be fine
