I had to bring a picture to make sure I'm not being treated like a complete idiot because I still cannot believe a manufacturer driven for profit would put this kind of "styling gimmick" at that location.

For the past 5 years I was able to spot these under many Toyota/Lexus on the road like Corolla, Camry, ES350, RX, just to name the ones I've seen a lot.

I understand manufacturers put styling diffusers on the bottom of rear bumper but not under the trunk.

And I mean the 4 "strakes" on the plastic piece covering spare tire bulge not the trailer hitch for those just looking to pick a fight.
