Anyone have or are considering a front splitter for their "basic" Fiesta?

It's just a cosmetic item. But it looks good if you are also planning to install a pair of rocker skirts.
I just ordered this splitter off Ebay motors. It is specifically for the 2014 up non ST Fiesta.
I am also getting the 3D carbon rocker skirts. The 3D carbon rocker skirts will fit all 2011 to 2019 fiesta's that are not an ST. I am also getting the 3D carbon 2011 to 2013 front bumper cover lower extensions just in case I find a clean 11 to 13 that is in good enough condition to be worthy of getting these parts. I am not sure about which year of Fiesta i will come across yet.
I will post pics of the parts i get as they come in.
These pieces are an alternative to buying an ST Line because of the rarity of that version and the high level of system complexity on the later fiesta that would further complicate my other plans for it. s-l400.jpg

Can't wait to see & hear how it looks & installs. I would definitely PlastiDip to match my grill.

This particular piece is described as having a matte black Finnish. Its not expensive. Around $75 bucks plus the shipping. It comes in three pieces. Beyond that, i have no idea what to expect. Never installed one of these before!
You guy's should take a look at the splitter that a site called www.protuninglab.com. just select the "Lip- spoiler area and enter the vehicle description. At $89.99 and $96.99 respectively for the matte black and glossy black finish. These are a few bucks more than what I picked. But they use the same image file to depict the part! They will be my second pick if the first one is not up to snuff in the fit area. There's no functional argument for these. So fit quality is the primary determining factor in
What I get. Im interested to hear what you guy's think. s-l400.jpg

Do they offer a matching side skirt/rail trim?

I don't think that they have sill skirts that are intended to match up. I am doing a mix & match of parts! With prices going sky high, i saw an ST line fiesta on a used car lot that had 30,000 miles on it and the price tag was only 2 grand under what it stickered for new!
Plus I think that a very low option Fiesta hatchback will be less hassle to "jolly-fy" if i don't have the passive anti theft system and central locking to contend with.

The logistics Gods have notified me that the splitter will land on my front porch late today or tomorrow morning.
Once I make sure that the splitter is three pieces and not twelve fragments, i will post pics.
I had a box waiting for me this afternoon.

Here it is. It arrived intact and apparently good condition. 20220623_183313.jpg 20220623_180420.jpg 20220623_181029.jpg 20220623_180538.jpg 20220623_180924.jpg 20220623_180936.jpg
I am going to offer a neighbor down the street from me an oil change and car wash in exchange for a chance to just try a no drill test fit of this piece against the bottom edge of the bumper cover on his 2018 fiesta SE hatchback.
This piece is much nicer looking than i expected. These are obviously injection molded parts. The edges and contours are really nice.

I am usually pretty much expecting to be disappointed. So far, this is a pleasant surprise. If it proves out to fit well, i will begin to wonder how the gloss black Finnished one would look. I think that these pieces could easily be color matched and look totally O.E. But, i like the black color against pretty much anything except red primer.

I will likely PlasitDip in semigloss black to match the rest of the front of mine.

The Ebay store i got this piece from is Carparts innovate. My cost was just under $70 bucks to my door. I have nothing to complain about.
The www.protuninglab.com site is offering an apparently similar or identical part in a couple of finnish choices for a few bucks more.

I will have to beg/ barrow a Fiesta that this was designed to fit. The 2014 up basic fiesta is the only bumper cover version i don't yet own.
