Probably an MPS MP3, whatever it was called, the turbo'd 170hp car...

Not a GTI at all... A lot of S2k owners have put those kind of intakes on as well, doesn't look like one to me with the sheetmetal underneath.

All the Mp3 had over the regular Protege was an Mp3 stereo made by Kenwood, IIRC...

You're thinking of the Mazdaspeed Protege, which it very well may be, since the turbo is located near the front of the engine...

I was going to say 2004 Civic, but the factory airboxes go to the passenger side on those.

Jerry, look at the join between the bumper cover and fender at the rear of the light. The car in the ad has a join that is much further up the side of the light. The Civic also has a wide curve to that line, where the Protege matches the sharper angle shown in the ad.

It'* a Protege, exactly the same as the one Peter Posted. Might be a MazdaSpeed, but it'* definitely a Protege.
