Will it fit?

So i found 3 pretty decently priced OEM spoilers. Trying to keep the car as OEM as I possibly can... and the ZTS spoiler just doesn't do it for me. So... for the sedan we have...

Mazda3:

http://www.carccessory.com/wings/maz...a-3-1803a.html

Civic:

http://www.carccessory.com/wings/hon...-2dr-1715.html

Accord:

http://www.carccessory.com/wings/hon...-2dr-1758.html

I'm obviously not so naive to think that these will just bolt on with no modding. Question is... how much fabbing you think it'll take to make each of these work? And which do you think looks best/would be easiest to mould to the focus?

i'm leaning towards the mazda3 myself...

The Mazda 3 would look the best IMO...the Civic looks too big and the Accord is too rounded.

I'd go with the Mazda 3 version. It just looks more natural..

Mazda 3, the Accord might hang to the side too much and the Civic's is kinda too up. It would look awkward. Mazda's is just right.

Great work on the research but can I ask you a question? Why not just look to the aftermarket for a spoiler. Wings West makes some very nice ones..... (although they are in some sort of corporate restructuring so it might take a bit to get one from them).
