$1,270.99+ $99.00 Handling Fee with FREE Shipping
Hey guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with a review and install of the Roush front fascia kit, available for all 2015 and newer S550 Mustangs. In this video we're gonna talk about a few things when it comes to this front fascia. We're gonna talk about the styling of the fascia, the components of the kit, and the install as well. I'll tell you right now that this install does involve a little bit of work, but it is very easy and straightforward. I'll go over the install in more detail later, but this is going to be a one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter. The Roush front fascia kit is gonna be something that you should check out if you're interested in giving your S550 a facelift and totally transforming the looks of the car. This kit is a complete kit, and it's gonna give the standard S550 the same looks as the Roush R7. Between changing grills, relocating the fog lights, and just having a completely different style with different lines, this front fascia adds an aggressive look that isn't replicated by other mods as you'll see in the before and after shots. This is a complete kit. It's gonna include everything that you're gonna need to make the transformation complete. Gonna get your unpainted front fascia itself, the upper and lower grilles, your corner pockets with the functioning ducts, the Roush chin splitter, the fog light jumper harness, and the impact actuator bracket. Of course you're also gonna get your install hardware with this kit, so you don't have to worry about that either. Just keep in mind that this is an unpainted kit, so don't expect a perfectly finished product right out of the box like this one here is. The fascia will need prep work prior to painting. This is the same front fascia that's on the new Special Edition Roush Mustangs. Roush makes this kit themselves, so you know it's gonna be exact and you know it's gonna be OEM quality. And not only is it gonna add styling, but it's gonna change air flow as well. Your corner pockets here do have ducts to make this possible, and of course the front splitter is going to change air flow as well. And I will say right now, guys, it isn't gonna fit like this on the car, this is all just sitting on the table here. So when you bolt it onto the car, it's gonna pull that splitter in on the sides and it's gonna fit perfectly.As far as materials, Roush uses OEM quality TPO materials for the chin splitter and the front fascia because they're both durable and long-lasting. It's also flexible just like your factory front fascia. The grilles on the other hand are made from injection molded ABS and they have a slightly textured finish to them. You can see it right here, and I think this gives an aggressive appearance and it also matches your side corner pockets. The upper grille is plain. You can see that it isn't going to come with the Roush emblem here. I know the pictures on the site show that emblem in the grille so it is a little bit misleading, but I wanted you guys to know that it isn't going to come with the kit. And lastly, all of this is lightweight, flexible, and durable just like your stock components are.One thing to keep in mind besides the fact that this kit is going to arrive to you unpainted, is that you will be reusing your factory headlights and fog lights, you'll just be relocating them and your turn signals. The kit will not come with new components so just be careful with yours during the install since you're gonna be reusing them. The other thing that I wanted to mention here is that the fascia kit is not compatible with Mustangs that have adaptive cruise control or collision detection. There's no room to keep those sensors in the front end with this front fascia.When it comes to price, I fully expected this to be pricey, and it is. You're looking at spending between $1,200 and $1,300 for this kit, but it is a complete kit that's made by Roush themselves. Do keep in mind that you'll still need to have this painted, so you are looking at a solid investment here but it's totally going to transform your car at the end of the day.Moving on to the install, I mentioned earlier that this is an easy install. It's gonna be a one outta three wrenches in the difficulty meter, but this is going to be a little bit time consuming. You can expect to spend two to three hours getting this installed, but like I said, it isn't difficult work. You need a handful of basic hand tools to get the job done, you will need to do some wiring, and you'll also need a drill. Obviously your stock front fascia will need to come off, but you're just looking at a few bolts, push-pins, and screws for that. Of course you need to disconnect the fog lights and turn signals before pulling the fascia off. Need to transfer over your fog lights and your turn signals to the new fascia. You're also looking at installing your new grilles into the fascia. There are a lot of clips for the grilles so just make sure you have them all clipped into place, and keep the same thing in mind when it comes time to attach your splitter, too. The wiring that you need to do is extend the fog lights down so you can properly relocate the fog lights. If you really wanna do this well, you'll solder the harness. Once you have that done, you're looking at being able to move ahead and get the fascia on the car. Gonna wanna hang it loosely at first to make sure you have all the clips lined up, press everything into place, and get your bolts back into place. Roush does gives you instructions on testing your fog lights before hitting the road, so I'd recommend just making sure that everything is working before you wrap up the install.Wrapping things up here with the Roush front fascia kit, this is a complete kit from Roush that'll give your S550 the Roush R7 styling. Comes unpainted, it is a straightforward install, and you can check it out more online right here at americanmuscle.com.

Fits great, but has design issues
I bought this straight from Roush, the quality is great and it will go on with very few issues. However, there is no way to get decent air flow to the intake because its completely closed off with the Roush grill that comes with this. After 10 miles of driving on a 72 degree day my intake air temp was over 100 and spiking more every time I stopped. It does not drop when you are moving because there is no air flowing to it except from the bottom pick-up point. And there is no-one that can help you with this, at Roush they are clueless. The nice folks here don't know a thing either about this either, you are on your own. I do not want to butcher up the grill by chopping it up. I have an AFE cold air intake, I am going to try and get some airflow to it thru the fender-well. As i said, its a great part that obviously no-one thought completely thru when it was designed. That is why I am giving it two stars.Helpful (0)

Very good looking product!
This is a very good looking product. quality of plastic seems very good. I do wish the turn signal fitment was a little closer to stock. For a small amount of time I thought I didn't have the right lights. the black holders block a small amount of the turn signals. I wish directions came with the product. Fear not, my youtube channel "FatGuyBuilds" will soon have a step by step video for installing this product. Overall if you have the cash and you like the look, THEN, Buy this thing!!!Helpful (1)

The best looking bumper!
This is by far the best looking bumper for the S550.Helpful (4)

Worth the money
This changed the whole look of the front end. Stands out of the crowd. It also fits perfectly. I have a 2015 GT premium with the performance pack so it can actually be put on these cars but you will have to give up cruise control all together as well as collision detection. The sensor behind the bumper does not read through the left fog light area which will prompt a warning sometime during your ride about the sensor being blocked and collision detection being deactivated. Just hit OK and your all set. Sometimes I get the warning and sometimes I dont but it only happens once a trip if at all. Other than that, this is worth the money.Helpful (12)

The Details Matter
I like the kit. I like the look it gives the car. I like most of all the functional details of the kit. I don't like the condition the kit comes in as raw material. It is expected to be required to perform some prep and finishing work on the piece before placing it on the vehicle, but the condition you will receive the fascia in will ultimately cost you additional money on top of what you would normally spend to have it prepped for paint and finally painted. For roughly $1,300 I should receive a kit of raw material that doesn't have residual mould material on the edges almost all the way around! The fascia should not come with deep scratches in the material... Scratches that require more than a little sanding to lay down. I shouldn't be required to fill parts of the fascia with body filler to smooth those scratches out! For Pete's sake I shouldn't have to fill mould lines with body filler to bring them level with the surfaces around them! I'm most annoyed by the fact that in the past I've had to buy a new Ford OEM bumper (raw material) that was half the cost, but in MUCH better shape than what I received from Roush! If the kit didn't have these issues I would have given it 5 stars, but it had way too many issues that I ultimately had to pay to fix before using the kit. Lower the price and I would expect to go through what I had to to get it on the car. The fit was practically perfect... The finish took all the joy out of this purchase!Helpful (14)

It is top notch quality and fit. If you thinking twice you probably can’t afford it and are interested in a cheaper optionHelpful (10)
Hi I have the Ford Mustang performance pack it’s a 2017 I’m not sure about the collision detection confuse a bit
The Fascia kit is not compatible with Mustangs equipped with Collision Detection or ACC we would advise to reach out directly to your local dealership with your Vin number in order to determine if you have either with your vehicle.
Where can I get the ROUSH emblem shown on the fascia?
Roush offers that emblem directly.
Does it come with the fog lights
Fog lights are not included, they carry over from your vehicle.
In Roush upper grill at the left side, is there an opening for air to the cold air intake???
Air will still flow to the intake yes.
I currently have the rtr upper grille w/ lights. Would I be able to install the fascia without the grill that this fascia comes with? I essentially wanted to keep my current grill but only change the fascia.
There is no cutting involved when removing the stock grille or fascia.
You would need to speak with Roush directly regarding their emblems.
We are not currently offering this fascia in carbon fiber.
Unfortunately this front fascia kit will not fit a 2018 Mustang due to the changes made to the front end of the vehicle.
The grilles and ducts for the Roush Front Fascia kit will not need to be painted. Only the bumper.
The Roush Front Fascia Kit will not include any spacers.
Unfortunately the Roush Front Fascia Kit is not available in a painted application. Only unpainted.
The Roush Front Fascia Kit includes the Front Fascia, Upper Grille, Lower Grille, Passenger side corner, Pocket with duct, Driver side corner Pocket with duct, Chin Splitter, Impact Attenuator Bracket, Fog light Jumper Harness and the Installation hardware.
The Roush Front Fascia Kit is brand new, as we do not sell used items. This is made in the USA. This is in queue for a bumper to be painted, installed and photographed, however at this time we do not have a current eta on when additional photos will be available.
This Roush Front Fascia Kit could be wrapped however, since it is coming bare it would need to be prepared.
