anybody have a good reason for putting an aluminum (race style) super tall rear wing on a FRONT WHEEL drive sedan? I thought (and i could be wrong) these were for downforce on a rear wheel drive car and only really functioned at like nascar speeds..150mph+ ? ?? or is it just for looks?

I'm guessing, but the smaller and lighter the vehicle the more useful it will be a lower speeds. I would think it would be useful on a front wheel drive because there are no components/weight in the rear...or as much. The larger(nascar) rigs don't utilize them until such speeds because of their physical size and weight and tire type. This is a complete guess so don't hammer me :)
Truth would be sweet to know.

But in those terms
Would it be rice if it was a rear wheel drive car and it had some big wing bolted on?

to be or not to be...rice
that is the question
haha
i'm not making fun of anything here, if you like the rice look than go for it.
i was just curious about the actual function of the "wing", does it serve a purpose on a front wheel drive car?

lol, i like quisman's response!
