Just thought I'd intro myself. Name is Rob and I'm in the Canadian military in Alberta.

I just bought a lightly used 2008 sx4 sport with 60,000Km. It's a 5 speed and seems pretty loaded to me, as I'm sure all the sports are.

I've wanted one of these car since the day it came out in 08. I had a chance to buy a 2009 corolla S for the same price and I chose the Suzuki and with no regrets!

I look forward to talking and learning as much as possible about these great cars over the next while.

Thx for reading.http://184.72.239.143/mu/4ac69683-e7ed-10ab.jpg

Great choice...the Corollas are bland and not very fun to drive...I have a 2010 Sport S 6 speed. Enjoy your new car! =)

Thanks to all for the hellos.

Im looking at a few mild mods right off the bat, like lowering springs, 18 inch black with chrome lip wheels and a OEM trunk lip spoiler.

Does anyone know the easiest way to acquire a OEM spoiler? And if so, do/can you get them pre-painted?

Thanks again.

yes you can get oem spoiler from a local suzuki dealer but it will be pricey somewhat as i had to pay nearly 200 usd for replacement piece on front bumper which came pre painted. just call up a suzuki dealer in your area. some other member may now of a better place to find one...maybe try to find a wrecked sx4 in your color or find one and paint it yourself.

I think Cobalt SS spoilers fit on the sedan? Just an idea

Thanks, but I'm looking for the trunk lip type spoiler (BMW m3/m5 style)

Thanks, I will be trying Both these options tomorrow.

Anyone order the ones off eBay, the 3m type?
