Maybe they had some leftover plastic lying around in the factory and thought it would look good there...?

I think this has something to do with aerodynamics which improves fuel efficiency.

Spot on ;)

I was also told by a honda guy when the car was doing the rounds before launch that they actually keep the car in a lower road tax band

Plastic fins

It apparently reduces drag and improves fuel efficiency on the diesel models. These pieces of plastic are to be introduced to the petrol models this coming year 2013. I'm currently looking out my tupperware containers to do a cheap mod. :)
