I try to go through the carwash with my 14 HB every week. Never had any issues except for the water that drips for a long time from under the spoiler. At least we don't have non-hinged louvers.

I used to hate the water and soap that would stay on the back glass after a car wash. So annoying. Much better now with the wing risers.

How many hatchback owners hate their non st spoilers?-img_1194.jpg installing the st spoiler was the best decision i ever made... looks a million times better than the stock spoiler too.

I still prefer the hatch. That adventure only reinforced I'm not going down any dusty or gravel roads ever again.

So they were doing some construction today and had the road tied up for quite a while. I was in a hurry and decided to backtrack to a different road and go around. Well the dang thing turned to gravel a few miles in.

Can confirm that wing-risers keep the rear glass clean.

dumb question from a Focus newbie... what's the difference between the ST rear spoiler and the one that is on our '16 Titanium?
