Spoiler looks cool. On Ford's website they show them in black on every color. I still think the 20" wheels look like flowers. I'll take the 19's.

The great thing is that Ford started producing bold new cars, a far cry from the situation 10 years ago. The new Taurus, Fusion, Fiesta and Focus all look good. A new generation of Mustang is coming too.

I've said it before: Ford has the best across-the-board mainstream line of cars and trucks in the industry these days.

I don't see a single "loser" among their current lineup. Even the couple of models that haven't been redesigned/refreshed lately are still strong sellers among their class- and nothing they're selling now is older than ~2008.

The wheels look as if they were going for another look and they ended up like that, i wonder if they look at it a different way, because if i look at them fast they kinda look like a different pattern... to me they look like flowers.. not my style of wheels..

I drive so fast, life cant catch up to me!!

The wheels do look kind of... outrageous, not in a good way. My preference is usually for understated elegance, instead of "in your face" attitude that many other American cars have. If I saw a new Taurus SHO on the street before seeing these pictures, I would have assumed that someone went out of their way to dig out these wheels at the corner aftermarket wheel shop.

Can't address lower, I don't think I want mine any lower, although it looks good, but as far as nimble, this car is much better handling then I anticipated. I can't believe that the Fusion would handle much better.

Hhmm, I think I like that, it's a bit tough to clean and detail the underside of the spoiler on mine. This looks like it has much easier access, and besides I like the looks!
