Will getting a CSL style trunklid...

...stop my car from getting dirt on my rear bumper? I figure the turbulence is causing a vaccum pressure when the air goes past the spoiler lip causing the dirt to get sucked in. I'm wondering if a slightly raised lid prevents that from happening. Anyone with VRS trunklid or similar please chime in. I'm sick of having every part of my car clean except for my rear bumper after every frikkin wash!

Tires? Really? I have had PS2's since. The dirt get trapped on the top of the rear bumper where the trunk lid meets.

Oh crap I just realized I posted on the gallery section.

Moderators, can you please move it to the right section (cosmetic).

If anything, getting a CSL lid will probably suck in more dust because it will induce a greater pressure drop and turbulence at the rear of the car.
