Thanks for the replies...

Here is a picture of the rear of car with wing on.



Here's a picture of wing from front quater.



This picture is the only side profile of the car I have where it shows how the wing dips down at the back because of the way the trunk slants back. I think the only way to fix that would be with big rubber supports underneath.



Please suggest how I can fix this dip problem cause it looks realy ugly from side profile.

hummm...the wing you already have is a nice wing, but i like your car better when it is not on....i like wingless cars....

and...yeah try to correct the angle of the wing with rubber spacers....it will also help to keep the rattling down if you have subs...

Oh come on, love the car, but you guys made fun of my light covers, I don't here the criticism here!!! LOL! But ya, I'd like to say from the front and the side, I like the wing, it looks strange, but good still from the back, I'd keep ur existing one. Don't like it without the wing personally.

I see most people picked no wing. But some people liked the wing I had. I have to weigh into account that in the poll question, I wrote that the no wing would contribute to helping my car be a bit faster and have better fuel economy. All I really care about IS LOOKS. How does it look. My car is simply about how it looks.

0.04 seonds off the quarter mile doesn't help me at all.

Anyway, I wanted to say here are some wings I found that I like:

APR Performance GTC-200




APR Performance Formula GT



ForumlaGT1 (too tall)




My friend thinks that style of wing will make my car look rice.

The reason I picked them is that my g/f says that the rounded TII wing doesn't suit the squareness of my escort.

What do you guys think?

no wing. leave the trunk lid without a wing... for the love of God... just don't put any of those alum wing... things on it.

it's a fwd car, it doesn't need downforce.

with that being said I really would love to take this spioler off my Si.

no spoiler is my vote.

FWD=no wing. you dont want to lift the front of your car up. any sort of wint on our cars is rice. rice rice rice rice rice.. remember,
Revolt, Build, Rise.

lets put the same wing as the 834235 other ricers out there on my car.

haha a wing that doesn't work is NOT going to give any downforce or raise the front of the car...

his wing, since it was painted and matched the car, wasn't techically rice. But I think it's cleaner without one.

let me point something out to you here..... the pictures you display, are all either AWD cars or RWD cars.... now, if you converted your car to an AWD, and it was a REALLY fast car, i would say the cleanest way to go is without the spoiler. it looks good without it.

Jesus christ, you guys are retarded.

You've gone and taken this whole "no-rice" campaign thing too far. There's a fine line between "not ricing your car out" and "making your car look good."

I personally think that a low profile, subdued wing would improve the look of your car. It gives the eye something to look at as it follows the reflections along the top edge of the door toward the trunk. It brings visual balance to the front bumper. Well anyway... I just think you guys are going overboard. I think "wings" are a necessary visual aspect of a car. It's like my girlfriend. She just doesn't look the same ever since I pounded her nose into her face.

Thats all it is though Greg, personal opinion, and if i could find a donor FBP Si trunk lid I would no longer have this Civic spoiler on this car. I love the clean lines, no spoiler look of Civics and Escorts.

I agree that a low wing looks good on the Escorts, hence why I would love to take the wing from a Honda Si like James' or get another one similar to my current stock one, just with no center pillar. That part just makes it annoying washing my car, Mine isn't quite flush on the underside of that pillar and every once in a while I have busted my knuckle on it cleaning the car.

But Saj, in my opinion those high wings look horrible on street vehicles. If you want a wing that looks good get something that sits nice and low that you can color match, I never really liked the design of your TII wing, but the fact that it was the same color as the car made it look a bit better. Just try not ot throw down aluminum, it's not like it's the new chrome, it doesn't look that hot.
