I know I need to see the wing on the car as the ST wing I thought would be a bit much and now I'm torn between the ST one and the 3D Carbon version. Don't get me wrong as I love the Focus' design but it's agressive styling overstates what you expect HP wise in base trims but the ST does help rectify that with very race car looks and power to match.
I know Focus saturation is differs be region and some places are inundated with look-a-like Foci but around here once you slap wheels on a Focus you already stand apart but when I see people post pics of 5 random Foci parked together I do see the need to stand out. That will never happen here.

Yes but is it more functional than say the stock wing. It looks like it would create more drag and would reduce hwy MPGs. What function is the bigger wing helping at say 75? I can see at speeds over 100mph where downforce is important but you're not getting tail lift in the Focus at even 80mph.
