So far no noticeable impact on economy. The rear window is indeed cleaner, but it is probably still too soon to tell how effective it is at this task.

And here are the photos:

Tires are Michelin Primacy MXM4 in 235/40R18. Traction is much improved and there is no hit to mileage/range. MFM screen this AM:

Your car looks great. The black-out sets you apart and the wheels make the look consistent. I would black out the "Focus" badge (or remove it, like I did).

Is that plastidip on the trim? Are the wheels much lighter then the OEM?

Indeed, it is plasti dip on the trim and "Electric" badges. And yes, I do intend to either paint or remove the "Focus" badge. I want to try painting it first, but I have to paint outside and it has been too windy recently...

Here is the thread on the trim and other mods - http://www.myfocuselectric.com/forum/vi ... =16&t=2040

Oh, and yes, the new wheel/tire combo weighs 5 lbs less per corner than the stock wheel/tire combo. Unfortunately that doesn't magically give you a 4 sec 0-60, but it sure does corner and ride better.

So what do people think of the new spoiler appearance wise? Personally I do like it better than stock, but still like the ST version better. I did find an ST knock off on evilbay for $150 or so, but the quality is probably lacking. $800 for the Ford ST spoiler is just too much IMHO.

I Just Ordered The knockoff So We Will see.

Tempting to get some lighter wheels. Less rolling mass is always good
