Default Where to buy front lip spoiler from?

Hi, I'm new. I'm wanting to get a lip spoiler like the one below sent to Australia. Can anyone tell me where the cheapest relaiable place might be to order it from in the US?



Cheers,

Cal.

hate to say it but we arent much into the exterior modifications and if you want the cheapest and most reliable ... well nobody here knows, but maybe at miata.net.

Neither am I https://www.miataturbo.net/general-miata-chat-9/introduction-photos-my-2-mx5s-12698/ It's to get more air into the front of the race car.

Thanks for the link.

Rosenthal Mazda/Finish Line Performance in Arlington, VA. They will get it to you for something like $180 plus shipping, and it includes all the mounting hardware necessary to get it on. The OEM lips (like the one you want) look great and are robust as ****. I scrape mine on tons of **** and it just keeps on like a champ.

I'd buy a JDM piece and ship from there.

Race car? I'd get something that's purpose built for an extra $100 like the new front spoiler from ISC. They ran that at VIR (track w/long straight) and pulled over 1.5 seconds off a 2 minute lap over the factory lip your looking at. That's a deal when it comes to reducing lap times.

well they are usually the cheapest here but not in this particular instance but they are super reliable and some of the nicest people you will ever talk to. check out www.ravenwingperformance.net they will ship it wherever you want and if there are any shipping problems they will do what it takes to make sure you get your part.

Unfortunately we aren't allowed to use spoilers like that.

Thanks for the other links, I'll chase them up.

I'm not having much luck here. The email to these guys keeps failing. Perhaps they've changed the address and not updated the site?

Call Ravenwing if they're not responding to emails. I've purchased a bunch of stuff from them and the customer service is excellent.

I saw the ISC Racing front spoiler last week at a car show. Definitely a race piece. It would need some work to be presentable on the street, and it was very low to the ground. The Miata it was on didn't look lowered that much. It's probably very effective on the track.

Ok, but with the time difference that is bit of a pain in the ****.
