BMW actually puts real engineering work/R&D/wind-tunnel tests these add-ons prior to marketing. For this and the front splitters, BMW claims that there is additional downforce generated (per original press releases). While probably not noticeable especially at legal speeds, a even a few lbs of downforce or lift reduction is a win, plus you can't beat the OEM quality/looks that you want to retain with a $65+k car.
