Do not read this if...

you like large spoilers on your Mustang

that being said, today i saw a mineral gray cobra. instead of the cobra in the front though, the owner had stuck the svt emblem there. no big deal, little personalization is okay. the car was kinda dirty too, but hey, it happens to all of us. However, there was a HUGE spoiler on the back!!! Blah! it was just awful. i walked away and said "how distasteful" rather loudly and a man getting out of his car gave me a strange look. hahahaha moral of the story, dont put an ugly spoiler on the back of a nice cobra.

Re: Do not read this if...

yea, no idea why someone would put a huge spoiler on the rear...

Also fyi NO cobra came from the factory with a snake on the front from 93-04 it was always the horse.

Re: Do not read this if...

Ha, worst part is people have done much worse to 03/04 cobras

Was it the parkbench, also known as the 00 cobra R spoiler, or something else?

I agree a large spoiler just looks out of place. This is why I am leaving the stock one on, it just looks clean.

+1 Yah I'm a fan of the stock spoiler as well...especially for the 94-04's. Some mustangs with large rear wheels and a big drop can pull of the spoiler-less look.

agreed, it looks fine.

as for spoiler-less, i think it only looks good when you have other things to balance it out the missing piece.

The stock spoiler on the S197 is horrible IMO. As soon as I get where I want to be HP wise which will be in a couple months the cosmetic mods will start. 1st thing to be replaced will be the stock spoiler,with a gt500/v6 spoiler.They look so much better.

Re: Do not read this if...

The ducktail spoiler off the 03/04 cobras. That is a *****in spoiler, but pricey as hell. Your best bet is to try and find a used one off a car that someone's selling. New ones from vendors are crazy expensive.

I agree the spoiler on my GT is not as nice as it could be, I think I like the Roush Spoiler better. I'm looking at getting some stripes painted on the side of my car and that would be a good time to replace it and have the new spoiler painted as well.

I would agree if the big *** spoiler had no purpose. But that spoiler on the Cobra R does have a purpose which is to keep that car planted with down force at incredible speeds.

Now if Ford just put the spoiler on for looks then it should be taken off because of how big and stupid looking it looks.

Speeds which are not attainable (legally) on the road. If it's a track car... understood...

Re: Do not read this if...

I agree with jimmy but the 2000 cobra R was intended for race use.
Hence the lack of radio a/c and heat. And of course the huge price tag.
