S30 Air Dam Front Spoiler Options and Builders- 2017 update!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am searching to understand what options we currently have for the front air dam for our S30 cars.  When searching through older posts on this topic, many reference vendors that have closed shop, pictures no longer shown, offering no longer offered, etc.  There are also several vendors that have had less than stellar reviews about fitment, quality, and business morals.  Below is a list of what I have found.  Lets bring all of our collaborative knowledge together and create a single point source for all offerings in the market in mid-2017!

OK, so those are the different types of air dams that i have been able to find.  With that said, it seems that the Type 1 Ducted is the most popular as there are several different suppliers of them.  There are others that seem very similar to the type 1, but have subtle variations.

If anyone can tell me how I can get my hands on this air dam, I would be eternally grateful.  My favorite that I have seen thus far.  Judging by the super safe and proudly worn jumpsuits and PPE, I am guessing that this picture was taken in Japan.

I scoured the internet for months looking for that one. I ended up settling for a POS MSA one that's garbage. If you do find it, please let me know.
