Spoiler on Vert

Anyone know if the little 'strip' spoiler you can add will help keep the rear of the car anycleaner? I know it sounds strange, but my whole car will look great, but the back will be filthy (guessing it has to do with airflow).

i think the filth has to do with the dirt and dust that is tossed around back there... that lip doesn't do anything really, I have one and my rear end gets filthy sooooo quickly

^ what he said. Mine is purely cosmetic and the back is always the first thing to get dirty after a wash.

That lip doesn't do much but serve as cosmetic purposes. The rear of my car gets just as dirty as the side and front.

Agreed. The lip doesn't make a difference.
