Does this mean the front grill for raptor is a perfect fit for our kuga? I found some cheaper editions of the grille here:

Personally don't like the larger advertising of the brand. Nothing wrong with the brand but I would like to see more grill. Too much American design for my liking.

I think the first time I saw it I opined that it was a 'typical American understatement' and that I disliked it.

My opinion hasn't changed but each to theirown.

Nice grille especially the colour but I prefer a more subtle 'ST' style grille.
I've been after a black mesh or honeycomb one for months now (glossy black with no chrome). Can't find one anywhere!
Settled on a Vignale one in the end as couldn't wait 2 months for delivery from Hong Kong and used Ford discount too - bonus. Having it fitted later this week so will post some pictures shortly.

My grill is naked, i would like to see more of something else now, even the titanium edition might be nicer, the plastic is too much maybe here. but a simple FORD logo on top, might just make it different.

A lot of people on the US Escape forums have fitted that grille. Aliexpress and similar places sell them.

A picture of my Kuga ST (Line) with new ST-type Grille (Vignale)....

May need to vinyl wrap the chrome surround to glossy black colour though.

Nice and understated and it suits the car well. I would leave the chrome surround TBH

Cheers! Well apparently it was a pig to fit due to Ford Parts not telling me the grille frame behind is different on the Vignale. So I asked them to hack off the two bars behind the grille like on the Vignale. Scary though but looks good. Only cost me 拢70 for fitting too. That included removing both front wheels and bumper! No idea what my local Ford dealer would charge for that! 拢100s probably! :)

Looks very good from a distance, wonder what the expected life of it is?
