Perhaps? One Aero here at work indicated that might be the case; brake cooling. The region ahead of the spat is a concavity and I've templated a small plate that covers over it providing a much smoother path to that spat. Probably will do nothing, but it bugged me on principle. Furthermore, I spent $47 and purchased the LE Eco front underfloor "splash panel" that smooths out the front center underfloor section (I'll post images later on), so these outboard panels ahead of the spat simply complement those.
