Madstad To trim or not to trim

Anybody try the madstad with the chrome HD trim and also without the trim, is there any difference in airflow or performance?

I've never tried the Madstad with the trim piece, only without...works great! I'm not sure the trim piece fits with the Madstad base, so I'm curious too.

I have the Kurakyn chrome trim. Doesn't seem to affect anything that I have noticed.

I had the trim set on with mine just not the chrome on mine was black. It looked cool but was a pain to get on with the thick madstad base. I took it off because it was catching all kinds of bugs under and normal washing wouldnt remove them. It was pretty nasty under there when i took it off.

Did you notice any difference in the way the windshield performed when you took the trim off? (besides the bugs) was it better or worse or the same?
