That one even premium SUV like Lexus NX have that black coloured arch... Doesn't look so bad on those cars as it sort of gives a muscular look.

Now this one on City makes it look like the new facelifted Myvi or Proton Saga... It is okay if those are really air vents but too bad they are just there to create an illusion...

Does this even count as diffuser since there is no hole at all?

Depends also on car color. If dark, like black, dark grey, dark blue you won't see the contrast too much. Silver then straight away see the difference.....lol

You are right. This looks extremely bad on silver... Not so sure about white though because black and white sometimes do look fine.

Go and punch some real holes there to make it a real diffuser.

New Civic turbo also won't have as much power to weight ratio compared to your Wira. Yours is performance turbocharged engine.

stock rear bumper also not fly away when WOT....assumed not catching direct air flow too.

race car, lowered. Diffuser from front to rear, all flat at the bottom.
create less air to reduce lift.

Our street road, hmm....

Old engine but with your lighter body and manual gearbox, should be more fun to drive than CVT Civic turbo.

Racing cars don't even need those punched hole kind of diffuser found in many of those modded Civic. Like you said, flat underbody, air is not trapped behind the bumper.

Better don't stray away from topic any further. But seems that nobody here got much comment on this City.
