    I want my car to look more interesting and eye-catching. Only I do not understand how this can be done.

    could add an oversize obnoxious wing that would make you look "more original"

    Hahaha, @Booter22. I think lolla meant more 'unique' lol.

    @lolla- There are many things you can do to make it look unique from others...

    Check out Mazda3s here or on sites on YT etc to see what is available or what others have done. Things such as wings, spoilers, ground kits, rims, wraps, upgraded wheels etc. Lots of things can be done.

    What you do is basically what you like, and what makes you happy, not what others might prefer.

    Good luck and welcome to TM3.

    Don't like it. its too tall, only because it may cut your rear vision quite a bit. It looks okay though, I guess.

    Short 'modest' rear spoilers for sedans would be my preference.

    I hear you ...It will probably mess up the rear view. wasnt expensive i could always remove it easily.
    All others , rear lips , on trunks i just find too small , like nothing is there whats the point of adding a lip.

    Anyways whats that italian car phrase : " What is behind me does not concern me "

    Much more concerned with side blind spots and lane merge.

    once its painted i think that will look awesome, shame there wasnt more spoiler options, i always loved how the speed protege spoiler looked, something like that ( maybe not as tall ) on the 3s would have always been nice

    Those protege sedan wings looked cool.

    I ended up painting my ducktail matte black. My 3 is pearl white and came with black rims and black roof and mirrors that were vinyl wrapped in carbonfiber looking print.
