there will be hardly any time where i will drive up to those speeds on the streets
IF i ever do, probably on a very open and clear area where no one is around lol
and it seems to me most spoilers are for show lol

The rr spoiler on the Si does in fact aid in performance, with only having a negligable affect on gas mileage. It is not there primarily for looks, although that is part of the equation for the Si. Honda will not put on a part that is factory installed without it having a benefit to the vehicle. We always confirm our aero designs and performance in a wind tunnel in controlled conditions. The majority of the benefit from the air spoiler is seen at higher speeds, where the effect of velocity gets closer to the effects of mass. For those of you who said it has no effect on a fwd vehicle, you are wrong. At higher speeds the benefit of a spoiler is seen in the overall handling and balance of the vehicle, not dependent upon drivetrain layout. So yes, the spoiler has a small benefit to the overall balance and handling of the vehicle, with a small gas mileage price.
Straight from an engineer at Honda. :wavey:

the wing keeps the back end down, and the car more stable, i knew that, but at what speeds are we talking about? i thought it would be 120+ mph not over 100, these little cars will go over 100 easy before you even notice it
