Always looking better!

But can never look to good.

Now its time for a speed style spoiler! Finish it off with mud flaps all around and you will have one beautiful 3.

The only limit is the one you set

Still lookin' smooth. The mudflaps would look good. I've always thought the 3 had this "rally" look, despite its apparent lack of off-road capabilities. And if being a "poser" is the only thing keeping you from a MSP spoiler, fuck it. Go for it. They look good. I've considered it myself, only to make the spoiler *pop* a little more...

Haha putting a speed style spoiler on wouldn't make you a poser. There is nothing you could swap from a speed other than the emblem that would. its there for a reason and that reason is because it functions better. so adding something would only improve apon your car. Just don't call it a speed and your good haha.

And some, including myself, really like the rally look on the 3. Aftermarket mud flaps sit very well with the body line.

Thanks for your input...I am just not into the "rally" style...I am more of "Clean Mods" type of person...yea!

You seriously think the Speed Spoiler does something Functional for the car?...Sorry to say its all Cosmetic unless you have scientific proof or some kind of info that says it does something for the car.....If you do I am interested in seeing that!...I think its pointless to slap on a Speed Spoiler if I am "not".

It does what a spoiler does -- provides downforce to the rear wheels for high-speed traction in corners. Does it do it better than the Mz3 spoiler? Probably nothing you'd ever notice. But to say the spoiler is cosmetic is not true. Whether or not you ever go fast enough to use it, that's something different. But there's a reason why they race them with the spoilers on...

Well its all about what you like, and your car is looking great. Though I'd be careful referring to mudflaps as not a clean mod. Especially when its the only one that actually keeps your car clean hahah. Sorry... My humor.

But its common sense that the speed style spoiler functions better. You really think Mazda would spend the time and money engineering an entirly different spoiler and throw it on their beloved high performance vehicle... Just for cosmetics? I think not. As mentioned the difference my not be too noticeable but I assure you its there. I just believe its a bonus that the higher quality appearance comes with it.

I can't believe you guys are arguing about the functionality of a spoiler on an economy car that can't even hit 130 without a mountain and a strong tailwind.
