Does anyone have photo's of the rear under body diffusers advertised on the TRACK model? I've got a Touring and I'm curious what these diffusers look like.

Thanks...

If anyone is wondering what it does , here's the answer...
The diffusers , along with the front chin , and the rear spoiler , lower the coefficient of drag ( .29 for the Track , .30 for the other models )..

So not exactly worth the money to add these then. .01 isnt going to make a real noticeable difference

I agree, But Its really cool to say your car has front and read air diffusers.

Thanks for all of the info and photo's...that's some heavy marketing by Nissan. I thought I'd see some panels covering the whole underside of the car...guess not!

Yeah, it's a drag coefficient of .01.  Not too noticable

I believe that its about the same drag coefficient as the stock rear spoiler adds.

not to noticble on the street, but high speed track driving and or in a race, any little bit will help...

race teams will spend thousands of dollars to get an extra HP out of a car or remove an extra pound of weight...

I do have to agree with Jason on that one. If you are seriously tracking your car then they may be worth the extra money. Besides that better to put your money elsewhere

its like someone debaiting between cams and rims... you are looking at about the same price with tires as cams installed... your not going to get much out of the cams but you are going to get alotta looks when you look at your car when you get in and out ;)

I think you're better off removing the metal bracket (which probably costs nissan more to make than the diffusers!) and save 2 lbs for free, than you are spending $72.

I'm kinda surprised how many extra parts my Z has.... These, the speaker bracket for the Bose speaker (that I don't have), the wire/cable trays on the right hand part of the car (for use in the right hand drive Zs)... I think I could take off almost enough parts to make up for the weight I've added in stereo equipment...

Are you serious? Nissan actually placed unnecessary wiring in the U.S. Z's? Insane...how did you find that? Looks like I'll have more than enough time this winter to go through the Z and remove some parts.
