2003 MR2 with the SMT. Front: 205/45/16, Rear 215/40/17. Sport Tuning T9-2 Black Mach Lip Wheels
100% agree. The "banana" spoiler can be replaced by a Subaru WRX flat spoiler. I've seen other MR-S with it and it really look good. For my taste, it look better than the "banana" one for a stock MR-S. I am 5.64 feet tall and this is the inside view of the TRD Style wing.IMHO #1 is loud & out of place without other appearance mods (front/rear lip and/or diffuser & sideskirts). #2 is understated and looks better in a non-aggressive type build. Which one looks best comes down to what the rest of the car looks like for me. Also, expect #1 to affect your rear view.
The trd wing is definitely functional. I set the angle of attack maxed down on the short track that my top speed is 96 mph... forgot to change it back and it became a massive air brake at 110-115mph
I can vouch for that as I did a 150 mile journey last week on the Motorway, doing between 80 - 100 mph!The ducktail is a functional spoiler btw. Not for downforce obviously; you need a (big) wing for thát, but it does provide a tear off ledge for the air and as such have a ´Kammback´ effect, which noticeably improves highway speed stability.
So many appearance mods depend on the rest of the car... not very often one thing is definitively better than another (except for Sivart... that was terrible with no redeeming qualities)#2 or a ducktail would be my vote for an otherwise stock exterior car. I love #1 and have one but I think it needs the rest of the lip kit or a body kit to really look correct.
Lighter OEM size rims are a definite too. As in functionally, measurably, objectively better. Esthetics/taste are subjective.... not very often one thing is definitively better than another
