    R-Package replica front and rear lower spoilers - who makes the best ones?

    In anticipation of my next car, I'm looking for opinions on who sells the best R package replica lower spoilers, I want a matching set, front and rear.

    I know there are tons on eBay, and I believe RSpeed still sells them. I forget how much I paid or where I sourced the ones I had installed on my 1991, but I recall the hardware being insufficient to mount them properly.

    They will be staying black. I'd prefer to not have to paint them.

    Any input?

    Thanks, -Matt

    I would be weary of ebay ones these days. The one I got from ebay years ago fits fine and is a solid replica of the OEM lip. Hardware is easy to source.

    But a friend of mine bought an ebay front lip recently and I noticed that his lip doesn't curl underneath and have a flat(horizontal) bottom. It just stops abruptly where it should start to round underneath towards the rear of the car. Now this isn't an issue to non-Miata people but I noticed right away. It does not look bad but I noticed because I know what they're supposed to look like.

    So just careful what you buy on ebay. Make sure you can return the item.

    In fairness, with eBay's Buyer Protection if you can prove it's a fake you can easily get a full refund and return it.

    Selling on eBay is another matter, that is sketchy stuff. Too easy to be scammed
    You want a good car. I want a good miata.

    FWIS I believe they are ALL Fakes, IIRC this OEM part has been out of production since early 2000, so if you want OEM originals you'll have to buy them used off an owners miata.

    I'm okay with reproduction, I understand that OEM Mazda pieces would be both rare, and expensive. They're also the first part that's likely to scrape, so I'd rather not worry about damaging them when I get too close to a curb, speed bump or scrape on a driveway.

    Looking at the options above (thank you everybody!) it will probably be RSpeed.

    Thanks, -Matt
