To give some balance to the weather on this forum, it's warm and dry here in SoCal. We're in a dad-gummed drought while half of you are freezing to death.
I've owned this FFH for over a year and after spending 30 years in a big city fire department I learned to keep my tools clean, so I wash it a lot.
Looks better too.
The back of the car always seemed to have a lot of dust buildup from the aerodynamic shape of the car creating a small vacuum in the back of the car (I don't have the trunk spoiler).
I'd like to discuss the OEM quality splash guards and the difference they seem to make with the dust buildup on the back of the car.
A few months ago I purchased and installed the OEM Splash Guards, front and rear. They really do work well keeping the wheel splash debris off the sides of the car.
I got used to the funky look real fast too, now I like it.
But the unusual after affect of installing them is the back of the car stays a lot cleaner from road dust buildup.
I wonder if the guards create a turbulence under and around the bottom of the car or wheels that disrupts the normal vacuum at the back.
I notice this because every time the trunk opens I used to put a dusty fingerprint on the paint, not so much now.
With the under-body streamlining I think the splash guards now work to defeat this rear dusting effect, it's a positive thing for me.
