    Rear bumper vents

    Has anyone here thought a out geting rear bumper vents?
    I have seen them on Hondas etc. but never on swifts.
    The idea is that they are supposed to release The air that gets trapped in the rear bumper and get rid of the parachute effect. I really like The look, but it means some cutting in the bumper so i dont know what to do.

    To reduce airdrag, best is diffusor with flat part..

    Yes, but only thinking about it because I like how it looks. Here's some more inspiration (sorry, zc31s). Ive also have seen a guy drill a hole in each of the rear diffusors 'honeycombs', pretty interesting idea too.

    Phil, i guess thats better, but vents look cooler i think.
    I like The looks, but whats making me carefull is that it makes an permanent cutout in the bumper

    Highco, same here, to be honest my Swift is my Daily so all I do have to work on a Day to Day basis. I have goten inspiration from asian builds and there bumper vents are more common than here

    I know people who’ve removed the diffuser but that’s about it

    Not a single Swift sport bumper at the scrapyards in entire sweden.
    I have acces to the nationwide database, or else i would just have bought an bumper skin, preferably in the right color.

    Batmarron thats very kind of you! But im located in sweden so i think it will be a bit expensive to get here,
    also, it looks like you have en zc31s?
