Are you looking for a standard cosworth splitter or any splitter that can be cut to fit?

I think those Renault ones look really nasty tbh but everyone likes different things I guess. You can still get the standard ones, alternatively you could opt for a saph rs500 splitter, rouse, or a Renault one....

Best quality aftermarket splitters I've come across are made by Ian Heron, about £150 ish from memory.

Its a real crying shame to fit a splitter from a laguna onto a Cosworth when there are 3 Sierra Cosworth options, rubber original, rouse and 500.

Im sure if you look hard enough there will be a Vauxhall one that would fit as well for a fiver

One of the first things I did was to remove the Laguna splitter off my black sapph and fit an original sapphire stone guard .
I gave it away
You may still be able to get one from ford ,

I dont mind the laguna splitters tbh.
And because they are rubber and not fibreglass or solid they dont fall to pieces if you catch them on anything which is a bonus

Cheers Paul

If the cars running big wheels then the rs500 splitter is spot on,standard car deftandard splitter.
I'm not a fan of the rouse splitters.

The problem with the fibre glass ones rouse,500 is that you catch/ground them out a few times and they get damaged, the original ones had a bit of flex as they are rubber as are the Laguna jobbies but saying that I wouldn't put a Laguna one on a saph as it's for faggots only

I just used mulgrips to hold it in place and marked it where it needed cutting shorter on the ends and then drilled small holes all the way round and used loads of small nuts and bolts as they were the only
Things I had in my garage

Totally smitten with the focus Dave even two years down the line, great cars, sound quality and go well,

No mate no agm for me, don't really get involved with activities of the RSOC anymore, far too many politricks for my liking, supposed to be for fun but doesn't seem that way to me so I stay away

If you bought it on eBay it would be double that no doubt, not a bad price really.

I got a rouse splitter on the saph and it looks great.

got one of Ian Heron's RS500 splitters on the 3dr and the quality is great.

Only downside as said before is they are made of fibreglass so as soon you kiss a kerb or speed bump you will mark it which is annoying.
