The diffuser that Lotus uses on the Elise/Exige is a functional piece that can be had from the dealer for cheap. Granted, you will need to do some aero work under the car to make it work properly along with cutting into the bumper slightly.

Here is an aftermarket one for those cars and, its cheap!

The Fiesta I pass is more complete in the rear!
When I do my lunchbox delete this weekend, I will probably install an angle to the valance to try and keep the flap to a minimum. Or so I hope. I would imagine that if I face the angle forward that it should not only stiffen up the plastic but also help deflect a tiny bit of air downward.

Idk, we'll see what happens with it.

Is there a difuser for us Sedan Owners? 'Cause the whole car looks very nice, but the rear looks pretty sad to me.

I think that's one of the biggest reasons I went with the hatch.

The ''sad looking'' part of the rear of the car is pretty much the same to me. I am reffering to the lower part of the bumper where the exhaust (or lack of) is

i really like that diffuser too. i wonder if the fswerks exhaust would fit in the cut out. yeah the other one would be empty but still would look nice. Id put some nice black mess in the top cutout to hide all the silver behind there
