Default Rear spoiler on 05 and earlier.

Do you think the spoiler has any functional value?
I always assumed it was just for looks.

I think they help keep the backdraft dust off the rear window.

I agree with NightWing : not much good for down force you can't go fast enough . If anything it could use a Wheelie Bar that touches the Road or track to Keep the Down force on the Front Wheels . Looks Good but USELESS

Yea, that's what I thought.
In my experience, it doesn't seem to help with rear window dust either.

And rear downforce isn't of much use on a front-drive car anyway....
