I have had my 2008 CX-7 for a week and I love it! I've never had a Mazda before and it seems like a great car so far. I had been looking at crossovers for several months and decided to wait for the 2008 to come out. Supposedly the only change from 2007 is that you can use premium or regular gas. I was going to use mostly regular gas and fill it up with premium occasionally. Any thoughts on that? I'm not sure that is a good idea or not.

By not using 91 octane, you will suffer in fuel economy and power. How much? I'm not sure. Will you harm the engine by using regular? No.

I don't think he had them installed, but Trussville Mazda just posted them:

I had the dealership install the Aero Package prior to purchase.
A quick look at the spoiler looks like there are two holes drilled into the rear hatch and then the spoiler is bolted to the hatch.
There is probably some adhesive between both hatch and the spoiler but it was hard to determine this.
The front spoiler looks like a easy attachment (snap-in) but I am not able to compare it to a non-aero version.
BTW, from a far distance, with the spoiler installed, the rear of the CX-7 looks a bit like the Lexus RX. The tail lights is the giveaway.

Installation of the Front Air Dam requires removing the front bumper and drilling holes in it.
Installation of the rear spoiler extension requires drilling 4 holes in the existing spoiler.
Both peices use adhesive mounting as well.
