I am thinking of getting one, but would like to know everyone else's opinions on them! Also, post pics if you do have one![ffrocks]

I thought it came with a spoiler? Or at least it says "included"?
More like a sun shade.

All hatch models come with a spoiler. There's a more aggressive one (modeled after the ST version) that adds air dampening and air movement (basically has 2 openings for air movement) that moves more air down across the back bumper. It keeps the back more clean (since any dirt or grime gets thrown up on the back of the car with the standard spoiler).

Hi, I wonder what other things it might do that are actually detrimental to the handling of the car. Ford extensively wind tunnel test their cars, has this one had the same?

You got this right, my tail needs wiping all the time. Brown particles from the tail pipe?

My rear end is also horrendously dirty ([hihi]) - and the dark color doesn't help. I can't wait to get it!

Hi, doubtful maybe, but modelled after can mean something completely different especially when it came out before the ST actually appeared to the public. It obviously changes the airflow at the rear, but the benefits are questionable, as I said before, Ford will have wind tested their version and there is no way of knowing what stresses this aftermarket bolt-on may have upon the rear of the car. However we have choices in life and whether you decide to fit this is up to the individual.
