I'm with funkyfresh on this one. What the hell is the purpose, or is it basically cosmetic. I can't see that changing the air flow much, I could see it actually ruining the air circulation to the intake cowl.

In that case, I would imagine you'd be seeing these all over the place...

on the yellow it does look like a spoiler for the hatch put on the hood but that blue one that vaboom put on isnt all that bad if that was the only cosmetic mod they had. In my opinion i dont think its all that bad, but to everyone their own....

If this component actually increases downforce in the front of the car, then it might actually do something beneficial for the Mazda 3 since it's FWD (more traction to the front tires)

Otherwise, it does kind of scream to the world "I am RICE!"

This is for asthetics only. There is no way that this little wing, placed at virtually the center of the car, will increase downforce specifically over the front axle. Anyone who claims otherwise is more than welcomed to show me legitimate wind tunnel tests backing their claims.

I see a lot of these on Celicas I think. In any case. its just another acessory to put on your car to make it look fast....like those roof air scoops I've seen on MR2's...but oh well, if you think it looks good go ahead and waste your money, but true car people know it don't do ish.
