    Default Front bumper vents?

    Has anyone seen a vent mod done to the Sri/Gsi front bumper on each side. Always thought that the in-dented shape on the bumper could use some vents or similar.

    Not sure what purpose venting there would serve other than for styling.. I would think it would create drag, like leaving a windows open a bit.. Probably why you dont see vents in that sort or area.. Im only guessing, but does that little dent serve the purpose of funneling a narrow stream of air faster along the side of the car, to ummm, make it more aero..

    The dent is styling only I believe. Believe it or not, the large grills on a VXR, the bulging side skirts and spoiler actually make the VXR have more drag than a standard model!! A lot of this stuff is done for styling...

    I suppose you with a bit of work you could channel air over your break disks to help them cool... but i doubt it would be anything more than a talking point in the real world
