Yet anoter question!... I know this should be in exterior, but i think i will get better feedback from here.

Ok i have an 05 ZX4 sedan. I just saw on Wings West a wing that i like, but it says its made for the 00-02 foci. I have a dealer nearby that has this wing in stock, and was wondering if it would fit my 05 without me driving 25 miles to find out the hard way. I know with the 05's they changed the a$$ end, but wasnt sure if the trunk lid was wider or not? [???:)]

not really sure which wing your talking about, generally wings are pretty universal. But there really isn't a reason to have a wing on a front wheel drive car anyways...

A front lip/spolier is a good option for the 05+ and focus sport carries them in either carbon fiber or poly.

post some pics of the wing you want. i would like to see it, i'm sure it would fit

why are you people so ignorant in regaurds to wings and how they work, even in a FWD car you want all 4 tires on the ground meaning down force would be good in the front and/or back.

BUT

on a FWD car, creating more downforce on the back tires is taking away traction from you front tires.... which oddly enough happen to be the drive tires... imagine that.

of course, i havent seen a focus with a wing(which by the way create lift... spoilers create downforce ;) )fast enough to actually create enough downforce to take away traction from the front wheels :) most of the time its just some ricer who thinks he's fast and wants to race my tire smoking 110whp automatic zx5 family mobile. i mean, shit, if i wanted a race car i would have went with a supra or something

actaully with its 70/30 or so weight balance it might actaully help blance the car out a little maybe it will handle better, trust me your not breaking your tires lose at at any kinda speed[thumb]

As you can see, these aren't "Wings" if you will. They are simply large spoilers that i think make the car look nice. I dont plan on driving 230mph and expect this 4" tall piece of plastic take my car up in the air. The only time i need traction is getting off the line, and i dont think 6lbs on the back end will disrupt that. Even seeing that i have the stocker already on. My $.02

I would call them or email them about this issue.

Good Choice btw, WingsWest products are very high quality.

I personally always thought that wings on front wheel drive cars were a little pointless, but if it's your thing, go for it. [woot]
