V6 = GS

Spoiler, lips, mudflaps were all optional equipment on the 4cyl, so you can't look at an Mx-3 with those equipment to know forsure what it is.

Easiest way to look is if it's a 4cyl:
- Hatch garnish: no spoiler, or RS spoiler.
- 14" rims
- no lip (mind you, most nowadays are broken)
- Higher stance.
- No V6 badges on the hatch or fenders

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Ha if you see a creek mice blue one that's most likely me.. It's in pretty rough shape but its lowered, has clear corners and rear tint.

If you see a red one with a Ford BP swapped in, brand new right engine mount, missing rubber and ground down rims and a bit of tree bark and rock and dirt embedded in the front end, that's my old one.

I think that was me, but it isn't a GS. I was there today, projectors and a black raised spoiler too?

That wasn't me at then, I passed through there around 5:45PM. I think I've seen you down in the SW before, are you rocking stock six spokes?

In that case I saw you once when i went to pick up some goodies for mine. My winters are some black stock six spokes too. Hopefully picking up some five spokes tomorrow, found a great price for a set.
