Has anybody purchased the front underbody spoiler and do you know if it increased your gas mileage? If it did, how much did it increase it buy and is it worth the purchase?

Thanks

better if you get one from mugen or something

or lower your car if you want more mpg

I have the underbody front spoiler but I can't tell you if it helps on gas mileage since it has been on my car since day one. It does look good though but you have to watch since it scrapes on everything.

Anything to reduce airflow under and through the car will help mpg. I think someone has the full mugen kit and said he got 4-5mpg increase.

Myself, I am going to use the rain gutter method. Take a rain gutter, slip it so you have 2 L shapes. Then mount it on the underside of the bumper to deflect air to the left and right from the front like the splats try to do.

Wow, how pretty. Funny, some tango red pearl insights I see are red like yours, others I see look like a black cherry or burgdnary like mines.

What gives? :-?

Whats your MPG? That looks pretty nice. It is lower so I would think it would lower the MPG's a little.
I live in Pittsburgh and if you know the terrain we have a lot of hills. I get around 45 to 48 mpg in the summer and 40 mpg in the winter. So I don't know if you can compare my mpg to the area you live in.

Yeah I have been to Pittsburgh a couple of times and know that those are some steep hills. Still looks nice and will have to be something I pick up later on.

No one? I bought some rain gutters to slit to make L shaped wind deflectors to mount on the front in a V shape and along the sides to further lessen the gap between the car and ground.

I should paint them, but I am sure they will end up along the side of i95, 288 or chipenham pkwy. :) Maybe I wll be proven wrong?
