As we all browse the web looking for the perfect chin spoiler for our 1999-04 Ford Mustang, the original 2003-04 Mach 1 style chin spoiler is among the most popular out there. In fact it's almost getting hard to find a 1999-04 Mustang V6 or GT that doesn't have a Mach 1 chin spoiler on it as time goes on. The one question many Mustang enthisuasts have is " How can there be 2 different brands making the same product and be all over the place with pricing? What's the difference?" Well we want to clear this up for everyone with a side by side comparison of all the Mach 1 style chin spoilers that we offer. The following will describe texture, fitment and color of all the chin spoiler and also what comes with them in the package.
First up, we have the original OEM Ford Mach 1 Chin Spoiler. This is an original Ford OEM piece and includes all installation hardware. If you were to buy a 2003-04 Mustang Mach 1, this is the chin spoiler you would have received from the factory on your new Mustang. This is the most expensive Mach 1 Chin Spoiler, but it is the original. Knowing it is a Ford OEM part you are getting a quality long lasting product that has the Blue Oval stamp of approval.
The Ford OEM Mach 1 Chin Spoiler has a textured finish and is molded black in color. When installing this chin spoiler as will all the Mach 1 Chin Spoilers, you do have to drill holes in the bottom of your Mustang's bumper cover to properly secure the chin spoiler. It will be shipped in a box without being folded or compressed.
Next up, we have the SVE Mach 1 Style Chin Spoiler. It is the most economical of the group. This chin spoiler is our own brand and is made just like the Ford Mach 1 Chin Spoiler. It features the same style texture and also is molded in black. The SVE Mach 1 Style Chin spoiler includes installation hardware and is ready to be installed. Please make a note on this chin spoiler, it is shipped in a smaller box than the Ford OE chin spoiler. Due to this fact, the chin spoiler is slightly bent to fit into this smaller box and needs to be left out in the sun for a short period of time to heat up and return to its original shape. This is no way damages the chin spoiler, it just cuts down on shipping cost, which ultimately saves you money.Now, the first two Mach 1 chin spoilers we listed are the Ford OEM Mach 1 Chin Spoiler and the SVE Mach 1 Style Chin Spoiler. Both of these are made of the same material and offer the same looks. The down side to these spoilers is that if you ever accidentally bump a curb, they will scratch and neither will flex much to absorb a curb hit.
No matter what Mach 1 Chin Spoiler you go with, you know you will be receiving a quality products regardless of brand. We simply wanted to highlight all the differences and explain some installation procedures to keep any confusion out of the purchasing decision.
It really changed the front end look of this car. Now I can't stress enough just how much of a direct fit this chin spoiler is on an 03-04 Mach 1, and how easy it is to put one on your 99-04 GT or V6. Really can be done in your driveway with common hand tools. Not going to take a whole lot of time. And it's going to add a bit of style to your GT or V6, or completely dress up a once tattered Mach 1.
Now the big difference comes in here at the back. Completely flush with the wheel well now. Before we had almost a thumb's width gap at the back. Now it's completely flush. We took care of a factory issue. Now for more accessories and restoration parts for your Mustang, check out LMR.com
