Street Unit legit site to order Mazda parts??

I can't seem to find much info on Street Unit Performance. Even from Mazda3 forums.

Has anyone had experience dealing with them? Do they manufacturer their own parts or do they buy from a (cheap) supplier?

What kind of parts are you looking for? For a reg 3 or speed3?
A lot of aftermarket parts can be found at Corksport, though some of their products are a hit or a miss and their customer service isn't too hot either. If you're looking for Speed3/6 parts, edgeautosport is the place to get all your parts.
As for SU, I have a friend that has bought from them and has no complaints thus far, but I do advise you to stay away from SURE motorsport products. Had a huge problem with them of on the mazdaspeed forums because they wouldn't own up to their faulty camber arms as they will self adjust the faster you go.

Street Unit is a legit vendor. They are affiliated with SURE Motorsports. Some parts that they make/sell as their own have some serious issues.

SURE Motorsports - Street Unit- StreetUnit.com - Design Flaws,Danger And Part Failures! - Mazdaspeed Forums

I've bought a Cobb downpipe from Street Unit before, didn't have any issues.
Also using the SURE 3" MAF intake and boost tubes and they are ok.

If you're just looking for regular Mazda/Mazdaspeed parts, check out EdgeAutosport.com instead.

I'm looking for a first gen Speed3 spoiler.
Seems pretty tough to find a good one that doesn't have shitty fitment.

I was planning to get a spoiler for the summer, and now I have 2 eBay spoilers that don't fit well, and wasted 3 months of my time. At least I did get my full refund back though.

Do you think SU can be trusted for their bodywork fitment? OR do they also get their supply from some factory in Asia?


I know it's pretty much a no-no to get body parts on eBay, but I'm pretty frustrated.
I obviously don't do bodywork, but I really don't understand how do parts have poor fitment... Like wtf were they using as a template in the first place when they were making the spoiler?? I get it if the quality is inferior due to cheaper material, but how do you copy the shape wrong if everyone's using the same template (car)...

Also...

Does anyone have any recommendations on where to paint a spoiler?
Silver colour. If I do get a spoiler from SU, they're charging an additional $285 USD just to get it painted. I'd think it would be better to buy it unpainted, and get it painted somewhere local for well less than that price.

I don't have any experience with Street Unit's spoilers. Don't ever buy aero parts from NextMod though. I have their CF rear wing lip and it was very bad.
