you dont need that, try some "more go" parts. Non on the wings on that site look good on the focus(or any other street car).

^Not everyone is into making their car go faster. Some people build cars for the looks.

Honestly the only tall wing that looks good on a Focus is the SAP wing. You can get it from Extreme Deminsions. But if you put that wing on a otherwise stock car it will look out of place. A bigger wing needs a bigger or lower bumper to match it.

I agree with norcal, if you go tall, you need a body kit, wider wheels etc to pull it off. I think a lip spoiler would be cool, but those are hard to find, not to mention it doesn't meet the "taller" look you want.

I also agree that some folks don't care about go fast parts. For whatever reason, every thread in this section has a comment to the OP to put money in the motor, not the body. For example, I have fast cars, and don't need my Focus any faster, it's just a daily. Do want it to look better though, so I am in the "all show, no go" camp, at least with the Focus. Honestly, it's a lot easier and cheaper to go fast in other cars.
