I've noticed a trend of Sagas and Satrias with holes in the rear bumper and metal plates around the holes. They are usually the same cars with the bus exhausts and colourful lights. I'm assuming there is no practical benefit (like the other modifications) but does anyone know what the purpose of the holes is?

originally used by those import vtec dragster in us to reduce wind drag inside rear bumper without removing the whole bumper...

but it became trending here pulak..same case as the aluminium rear lower arm...those were meant for weight reduction in drag car...but ppl use it as cosmetic upgrade used daily which sometimes compromise with saftey and broke into 2pieces...




cheaper way to reduce rear bumper drag






or better



even better




the best



sure no rear bumper drag... smile_tongue.gif
