Rear Diffusers

Ok I know this is going to be a split between opinions but just wanted to see if I should or not?
Who out there has had this or has it?
do you like it or waist of money?
and any problems with it I should know before getting it?

What kind of racing do you do in your dedicated track car?

Word on the street is that most rear diffusers, especially the one made by Voltex, are dust/dirt traps. They still look super cool though and I really want one, but I can't justify the cost for my daily driver... yet

Then to answer your question, it would probably be a waste of money since you won't get any functional benefits. Aesthetically the only work on aggressive cars.

I kind of thought in my opinion they were just for looks.
Then lets say it is a very aggressive car?
What kind of benefits would I gain from this?

I really REALLY liked the look of my APR rear diffuser before I got hit in the rear bumper. I miss it. Kind of want to fix it and put it back on. It was stupid expensive. $500 IIRC. Depends if it's worth that to you just for the looks.
