Hey all,
Not too sure if Im posting in the right spot.
But to put it all together, I have blown knee and passenger airbag from the RS Im fixing up.
So replacing the dash is imminent.
In theory I would have to get a dash board from an RS or ST with the hole for the gauge cluster on top.
However Im seeing that a regular Focus dashboard is the same and is simply missing these holes.
There is roughly a $125 price difference I'm seeing between the standard focus dash vs an ST/RS one.

I would love to save the extra cash for sure and mount the gauges on my own by cutting out my own hole.
I would just like to know if there are any other differences that would cause problems or be visually different?

They should be the same, and if you don't want the stock gauges(of dubious quality) I can't think of any downside.

The Titaium or some other trim level Focus had a speaker grill plate that covered the hole. I used the same grill to blank my RS dash he when I removed the OEM gage pod.

I'm not certain if it contained a speaker or not, but the grill plate covers the same hole our gage pod is in. View attachment 351228
Ahhhhh, I see now.
Thanks for the heads up. I brought back the dashboard yesterday. I do not have the holes for either the gauges nor the push start button.
but for $200 I got the dashboard, passenger airbag, and knee airbag. So its a wonderful steal and half.

The SE dash has the cutout lines for the gauge pod as well, so just be careful with your knife and you can transfer it over
