Civic VX rear diffuser

New, never mounted. Just the diffuser--you'll need to buy a mounting clip for it. (a few bucks at dealership/auto parts store)

$65 shipped contintental US

Pretty sure he means the piece in front of the bumper, under the car, that makes it so the air doesn't flow into the backside of the bumper, and instead routes the air under and past the bumper.

I finally saw one for the first time on the VX my friend just bought. 125k miles and it still didnt fall off!

Yep--fills in the void in the underside of the rear bumper on the driver's side.

Stock piece on the VX, but fits all 92-95 Civic hatchbacks.

If Honda figured it was going to help aerodynamics on the VX, then why not stick it on any other hatch? It was a popular piece for EG's that saw track use as well.

If it weren't dark out, I'd snap a pic and post it. I will if I remember tomorrow.

Don't do it on my account. I have a VX and I know the piece is there, I had my car on a lift when I bought it. At the time I had no Idea what all the plastic was about but I know now.
