Take a look at a current F1 car to see how much they utilize 'vortex generators'.
    Are you saying you put the little bit of trim on the window triangles and it kept the back of your ST clean?

    Those are for the euro side mirrors only though (the ones with the side markers below the mirror cap).

    Living in Denver with all the sand and stuff put on the road in winter, I would imagine someone posting similar issues on the local FoRS/FoST group about it. I honestly don't drive mine in the crud unless necessary, so I haven't personally experienced your problem.

    Do we think a ceramic coating would help with this issue? Or because it's partially trim, it's still going to stick?
    So the part of the plastic housing that's facing inwards? I think that should be normal since the liquid has to go around one way or another, but I was expecting them to come back up and stick to the actual mirrors. So you don't have issues with mirror stains that prevent you from seeing?

    I have this on mine as well. I ended up using a ceramic coating and it has helped tremendously with the water spots.

    White-RS2,
    Where did you get those spoilers on the mirrors.
