No, unfortunately they are still attached to the car to the best of my knowledge...
What parts exactly are you looking for good sir?

Hey Dude
Looking for the extra panels the 09's have
1- over the oil pan area
2- down both sides of the body/ chassis--they start at the rear of the front wheel, I think or close to that point. There are a total of 3, drivers side is one piece and passenger side has 2 pieces.
Dont think people have caught on to the value of these little things--hehe. So I posted to try and help educate some?
They really smooth the undercar airflow much better.

Anyone have pictures? I have not see them yet. Curious how similar the under engine panel is to the beatrush unit.

Its nice to know that mazda added these, I have wanted to build my own for a few years now, either out of aluminum or a thin abs plastic. Who knows if I will ever get around to doing it. I want to attatch them to the mazdaspeed sideskirts and maybe even run them under the rear suspension and attatch it to the rear underspoiler.

I took these of a 2010 GT that I worked on. Everything looked the same but i didn't really examine it.

Yes I like them. OD have you noticed any improvment on the track?

Mazda got a CD reduction in 09 from .31 to .30 and I believe it was mostly due to the underpanels and they could have done so much more work under there.

Once I get my supercharger (maf based blow through procharger) dialed in I will be doing a complete underpanel project. I just wish I was able to test CD to see before and after. But since I cant, I will be doing coast down test. Basicly timing how long it takes for the vehicle to coast from 100 down to 60 MPH before and after the mods. I have a few other aero mods in mind including a front spliter (track only).
