Spoilers - How effective/useful?

Hello fellow Xers,

We've recently added a 2016 Model X to our fleet.
I don't like the looks of the rigid spoiler and am considering removal.

Can anyone tell me the benefits - real and imagined - of the spoilers?

I find it just occludes the already poor rear visibility.

IMO, spoilers, for the most part, are properly named. They spoil the look of the car.

From a practical point, at high speeds, they increase the downforce on the rear wheels. This is a good thing if you have to make a high speed maneuver. It can help keep the rear of the vehicle at the rear.
