    So very 2nded. Especially on the washing part.
    Tallest wing I'd go is a WRX STi style wing. Rally style. <3

    I think it looks the best and cleanest with out any wing at all.
    Plus it makes the car look lower :wink:

    That body kit looks sweet. I actually would consider that kit. A small spoiler would be OK. A giant spoiler looks like ass.

    I like the TII wing. I seem to like things that other people hate. But really, the only thing that makes things popular is the fact that EVERYONE ELSE thinks it is.

    Stick with what you think looks best. The TII draws attention.

    You said yourself that you're more about show than go. So why would the performance benefits have anything to do with your decision?

    I like the wing that Crank0r has on his wagon. I'm not sure if it would do much, but I would put it on my wagon too. It just gives it another thing to attract attention.

    Thank you for your opinions about not having a wing, "there is a fine line between rice and style", TII grabs attention, and the many people that advocated not having a wing.

    I've been thinking about this topic, asking my girlfriend who's an artist, asking a guy who has designed and built cars to win at Darknights, and my own personal taste.

    This is my conclusion:

    1. The car does look nice without a wing: the wide body effects of the cars are much more pronounced without the TII wing.

    2. However, without the wing, the car does NOT grab the attention of little kids and teenagers as it passes by as much as it does with a wing.
    2b. With a wing, it looks more like a racing car. It is a stylistic hallmark of any car, even ones that have extensive lower body work (excetion, the Enzo).

    4. The TII does not suit this car because it is rounded, and an escort is square.

    5. Final conclusion: Find a mid height black (to contrast the yellow) or CF (like black) wing that has got square lines with mild curves and doesn't have to be painted.

    Solution:

    I think it would look good with a wing. But not a wing for $950 8O
