When you see a rear window wiper and go, thats a bad design, the aero is bad if you need a wiper.

If you get pissed off that your car needs to use said rear wiper less then a mile after taking your boat tail off

YKYAE when you're driving late at night, you kill the engine, come up to a round-a-bout and keep going around and around and around until right before you lose momentum where you can park afterwards.

When you discover that you still beat the pre 2007 EPA fuel economy for your car when you were doing 80-90 MPH on the freeway due to a slow speedometer (was the speed of the fastlane traffic I was keeping pace with according to the GPS app on the smartphone I found dumpster diving.)
