understeer? heh
I call em canards, like they do for planes.

And they're for high speed. Mainly downforce and stability.

But also a lot of it is looks

I don't see them doing much on a road car. This, as with most things, started off as a fashion accessory that was just copied due to their use in the JGTC cars. Then a lot of demo cars started using them and now they can be seen on lots of private cars. A lot are attached usung stays and bolts but the cheap ones are simply attached with rivets.
They would increase front downforce but I'm not sure the actual levels achieved would be even be felt...:rolleyes:
