Sedan Spoiler?
 
Even though my car is being bad right now I still like it and really want to add on the little wing that the Ti's and some of the SE's have.

Has anyone had this done? Cost?

One a side note does anyone have any aftermarket wheels on their Focus using adapters? I have some Enkei T-Forks that I purchased before buying the Focus and the lug pattern is different on the Focus. I was just looking for a little insight about how they worked etc. If they are going to make the wheels stick out I don't want them lol

Thanks [:)]

I did on my sedan. Got it on ebay pre-painted for less then 100 bucks. Friend at an autobody repair shop installed it. There are some huge metal plates in the trunk lid that they had to grind down to get the screws in. Had to make two holes in the trunk bigger to get the screws in it as well. Turned out nice though

Found it on eBay. It's a little higher now.

eBay has one floating around, I don't think it's OEM, but it's $102 or something painted.

I think I am going to give that one a shot considering its substantially cheaper. Lets hope all goes well!

Based on these numbers for my dealer here in PA:

SRP: $239.00
Your Price Installed: $397.05

397.05-239=158.05. As always, YMMV...

I think I may look at some reputable body shops then just to compare!

Used to live in PA, miss the snow sometimes [:(]

You'll need to add the stiffer springs for the trunk lid to compensate for the spoiler's weight. They can be found on any dealer parts list.

[???:)][???:)] it doesn't weight 15lbs. My trunk lid still tries to take a swing at my head when I open it.
