Why do you have a regular 3 hatch spoiler instead of the mazdaspeed spoiler?

Strange, this thread got bumped but I don't see any new posts. Forum tells me there is a page 3, but when I click it I go back to page 2... hopefully when I post I can see it?
-edit-
nope, stuck on page 2. wtf...

I can't speak for other African Countries, but here in Nigeria, Toyota and Honda rules.. Mazda is not very common beside the 626 and 323 which are mostly used for taxi services. It's very rare to spot a Mazda 3 (I barely see like 1 in a month in the wild) and the Mazda 6 is still a Unicorn here (though I have met people who reportedly own the mazda 6 I am yet to confirm such ownership) The problem is the Mazda Dealership for the country is just IMHO a front for some other business. I went to their Abuja branch and it felt like a grave yard of Mazda cars.. Not a single brand new mazda to be seen. I could not even get a headlight for the mazda 3.. Only thing they have in stuck is mazda oil filter. If we could have a robust and functional dealership here I am sure we would see more and more people use Mazdas.. Till then, few of us who move against the crowd can enjoy the uniqueness of owning a Mazda 3 (and suffer the consequence of finding parts)
