I don't think there are sizes. They just measure the boot lid and then make one. It is just stuck to the boot lid with a very high quality 3M dual side adhesive tape. It just won't come out unless you really try to peel it off.

It cost me 4.5 and some 700 for the painting. The spoiler is actually hardened rubber.

The S kit except the spoiler is not sold officially. The service guys may be able to procure one for you unofficially. You need to upgrade to 15 inch wheels if you get the bodykit done as otherwise your car will look weird and the skirts may scrape.

The price for original sports spoiler of fiesta is costing 15560 + 1500 (paint) + 1000 (installation) that comes out to be around 18000 whereas the normal spoiler is costing 9000 including all, how come such a difference

I am not planning to upgrade the alloys, even if put up the side skirts as of S, how would the skirts may scrape because the GC of fiesta is good enough

The spoiler of the S with painting costs 12k in Chennai, it was the price the Sales rep from ford told me in March when I inquired.

You can get it from Chennai if the difference is too much.

The skirts will not scrap as it is does not extend the body below but extends only in the side ways with the body, I hope you get what I am trying to tell you.

@Gilead, by changing the wheels to 15 does not mean you are increasing the height of the fiesta. You are decreasing the Tyre profile to compensate for this Wheel size increase.

When in 14, the tires run on 175/65/14 profile. When the rims are changed to 15, the tires run on 195/55/15. The tire height is brought down by 10 cms, 65 to 55.

Of course it might look a little weird.

Dude trust me I love this lip spoiler on your car, the original spoiler on the S sucks so much that S badge almost means Sucks because the Spoiler is so bad looking. What were they thinking that they will do a 911

Ford at lucknow is charging 18000 for spoiler with paint, too much and only 9000 for normal spoiler, i will go for a normal one,

and about the sports kit, if it goes sideways then it is good and i hope the S kit can be easily installed in 1.6SXI, only on point to ask, why it will look weird when almost all the things are same in SXI except the tyres

No it won't actually. I saw the diesel EXI with aftermarket alloys and it looked as good if not better than the S. The size won't matter much since its just an inch upsize.

I am going for a normal spoiler that will cost me around 8k since buying a sports spoiler at 17k is too much of a cost and in that money which i will save, i will look out for sports skirting for my 1.6 SXI

The diameter difference between the 175/65 R14 & 195/55 R15 is over 2%.

The S is around 1.2cm higher than the other variants of Fiesta by tire profile! That height and the hard dampers should be saving the side skirts on the S from scraping at every other bump.

@ruchirtnt, go for the lip spoiler like the one fixed in Pr_007's car. That should look awesome on the Fiesta. The OE spoilers from Ford for the Fiesta are boring.

in context with the lip spolier, it looks that a curve at the boot gives a lip like spoiler look, i think the city 3rd gen also has the same boot giving it a lip spoiler look.

Pr, I missed this. 65 and 55 is not the sidewall height but rather the profile. (Sidewall/Width)*100 = Profile. The S is definitely taller than the other variants.
