    Finally got a chance to wash the X and have a close look at all the panels, fit, etc. While washing the back of the car, I noticed there is a hole under the glass under the spoiler. It looks to me these holes are meant for the P90D's movable spolier but why would a 90D with fixed spoiler have these gaping holes though.

    Anyone else see this with their 90D with fixed spoiler?

    Most likely cheaper to manufacture and easier logistics. They probably stamp that hole together with some other transformations so it pretty much costs them next to nothing and they don't need additional tooling to get in that hole into the P90D parts.

    Draining holes for water maybe?
    If the area is full with water and it freezes, it will destroy the stuck spoiler when beeing raised.
    (But probably just a case we in freezing Norway would think about, and not in sunny California ;)

    Those holes are for drainage. You don't really want water laying there even in a warm climate.
