Screw Moss motors

Mazda Miata Parts & Accessories at MiataMania.com

"Now available is a new wing with a hot look and a functional 3rd brake light that we think looks great on the Miata. We found this idea from a Forum member on miata.net and were excited to find a wing that really adds to the sporty look of the Miata. Wing is furnished unpainted but with complete installation instructions and hardware. We recommend professional paint work but the rest of the installation you can do yourself."

Not sure what the issue is, that thing is hot. Just need to know if the wing can support the weight of my boyfriends ***.

They stole my Hyundai Tiburon wing idea.

do yourself a favor and buy one at a junkyard for 10 bucks rather than their 150

My brake caliper cover idea was stolen, but I decided not to broadcast that information.








Ah, crap.

nicacus invented the idea of installing a part originally intended for one car onto a different car.

Another company "stole" that idea and is marketing it as a commercial product.

He's pissed that they're not paying him royalties.

I put a Cobalt SS wing on my 99 Miata like 3 years ago...and I sw that someone on m.net did the same thing recently...but I never advertised that I did it. Didn't look too bad. I've also thought about the ides of the 4-door Cobalt wing (low and subtile). I know neither add any performance, but I don't mind a slightly exaggerated look...as if that wasn't obvious by looking at my car

It looks like crap anyways. Dont be mad that their bad taste were later than your bad taste.

Really, it looks real out of place.

I'm really not that upset.. Just found it funny that they got their idea from a "miata.net forum member"

I took the spoiler off a couple months ago because I didn't love it. I liked it from some angles but from behind I always hated it.

I traded trunks with my brothers friend (see pic). He "can feel the down force"

This is probably the only angle I thought it looked good from
