Did the daily commute today (75mi) and noticed a remarkable reduction in the amount of grime on the rear window and bumper. Those vents really make a huge difference, especially on the white.
Are you kidding...? It's a hundred degrees every day here and no rain in a month of Sundays. [bigcry]really? that's my biggest pet peeve with this g car all that grime that builds up in the back lol has it rained or anything since you've put on the spoiler?
So what was the final cost of the spoiler? Might be worth it to me as I've noticed the grime on the back and it's annoying...Are you kidding...? It's a hundred degrees every day here and no rain in a month of Sundays. [bigcry]
Really though, the grime I get is usually just road dust, you know that black powdery stuff that rolls up onto the rear bumper and window. I went over the back most every day with a detailer just to keep it presentable. After work today, I wiped a finger across the window and bumper and did not even see a line, much less the usual trench that it digs through the 1/8" of dust.
I know a lot of people said they didn't like the higher spoiler look, but believe me, it looks great in-person and the lack of grime is a pleasant side-effect. It'll probably pay for the spoiler and paint over the life of the vehicle in elbow grease and sweat.
I also have another trick for you guys, but I need to get to bed for the night for a long day tomorrow. We'll discuss paint protection on the rear bumper and door sills tomorrow.
No detectable difference with it than the stock antenna. I was worried about that, but it hasn't seemed to affect it at all.Nice stubby antenna. How's the reception? ...and if you don't listen to the radio enough to care either way, can you give it a check for the rest of us who were thinking of getting one? Please and Thank you.
