Hi Marty, it was suggested to me by someone that knows a fair bit about aero that it might improve the airflow over the rear of the car, but it's all just theory i'm afraid without proper wind tunnel testing, who knows to be honest.

I only designed it to fill that empty looking void and look like an OEM part, if it has added aero benefits that would be really cool, but i'd probably say it doesn't really do anything.

Could do a bodge test with a smoke machine and some fans or a private road, just need a bloke with a couple of decent cameras to record it and muck around with the footage.

It could be worth a shot, might answer some questions and increase sales!

I have the cameras, just need a car with the blade, a smoke machine (someone must have nightclub connections or we can rent one) and a place to do the business.

Anyone got a disused runway?

I keep finding myself wanting another look at this every time I visit IMOCUK.

Paul, how much is the postage to Ireland?

Hi Marty, the total cost would be ?195 posted, they cost a little more to produce one unit at a time outside of the original group buy.

Thanks Paul
