I am getting the silver one this month......I want to tint the windows but my husband says NO. Can't fight him since I am a stay at home Mom getting a new $30,000 car!!! Hey....I will show him the pics....maybe he will change his mind. He feels it does not need spoiler either. I am 38, he's 52...hmmm, is this an age thing? I guess I can say "he's my old man!" Hee hee.
Let's see a picture with the bra on. (I never thought that I would say that) I think the car looks great without the spoiler. The AP just makes all the difference. By the way, the last shot you posted is just awesome!
those pics w/the bra......wondered how it looked. Hate to cover it up too, but those darn rocks and stuff.......the 3M stuff looks to be to expensive to me. It's a nice Bra though....how much was that? Thanks for those pics.
I think it's a given, that any vehicle with bra on looks awful. I think all bras are afterthoughts of accessory planners. I can't imagine car designers saying "oh, we'll make a car that looks good with and without the bra!!".
I agree 100% that car looks better WITHOUT the bra. I don't think there's a soul on this planet doesn't agree.
The thing is, for us "neat - freaks", little rock chips and bug crap cannot be ignored. I like my "stuff" to be in top shape. I want to keep it looking new as long as possible. Just because automobile is a commodity, doesn't mean I should drive it to the ground.
My last car, 2001 RAV4 (I know, I know...) looked like a new car inside and out. Only thing it wasn't in "like-new" condition was the odometer w/ 36000 miles on it.
Also, I DID NOT BUY THIS CAR FOR THE LOOK! I don't care less what this car looked, as long as it performed the way it does.
I can't see what it looks like when I'm enjoying the sound of new Rotary Engine humming at 9000rpm. I can't see how bra is destroying the front end beauty when I'm drifting the car with DSC turned off.
Let's thank engineers at Mazda for bringing another rotary-powered vehicle, and enjoy their creation.
2004 RX-8 Sunlight Silver w/ Sports package, Apperance package, Rotary accent package, and NO SPOILER!
Make sure you take that bra off when you clean the car. Sand and dirt gets built up in it can scratch your hood. Also, if your car sits out in the sun for too long over the years, it can cause uneven fading.
