what do you guys think?

so im looking to get the 3d carbon spoiler for my hatch i found one on uniqueautodepot.com for $220 and for an extra $136 they can paint it color matched with your paint code. so it would be $376 total with shipping. what do you guys think? has anyone bought from this website before?

I like the ST wing better than the 3D carbon one.

I think it looks good, seems like a good price. That is a great deal for the painting. Definitely get it painted. You know where to find your paint code?

I like the ST ones, they look great. But the Carbon one isn't bad. The ST ones have really helped the hatch look much sportier.

The paint codes are arbitrary and have nothing to do with the name of the color. Although they do properly decode to the specific paint code.

P9- Frosted Glass Metallic for example.

UA was ebony black, etc....

True just doesn't make sense to me but hey I didn't write the codes lol. I've never even seen a frosted glass focus in person not even at the dealer

I've seen several, but I also own one and see it almost every single day (minus weekends if I don't go anywhere). I however have seen far more Escapes in Frosted Glass. They only ever made 6795 hatchbacks in Frosted Glass. Something like 11.xk sedans also, vs over 400k models built and sold for all of the 2012 Model year for North America.

I've seen very little new escapes around here maybe 5 to 8 but nothing at all in frosted glass and I don't know why it's a very clean color too. And I've never seen a modded focus around here so that's what I like the most lol I like being different
