Black streaks on Rear After rain

Aloha Y’all. Always getting black line streaks after the rain but the only place is down the rear, what do you think is the cause? (Recently washed car so this isn’t all that bad yet)

Also noticed on the inside top, the middle hole is missing the black plastic piece covering the hole is that supposed to be the case? What is that piece called?

Thanks everyone!🙏🙏

Hi, the black streaks that you mention, do you mean the dirt spots on the top of your bumper on the picture? If yes, that's normal. The rear of a CT gets dirty very fast when driving in the rain. It's just caused by the design of this car. Some people fitted mudflaps and it supposed to get less dirty but I can't tell for sure since I haven't fitted those.

The part that's missing is this I think:
Cushion - Lexus (75129-AC010)

Good luck!
Just looked at mine and seems that the missing piece isn't a missing piece. On mine it's open too :)

When I was little I always thought it never rained in Hawaii...:))
But I think there is nothing you can do to prevent this other than not driving in the rain, wrap the rearbumper in black or trade it for a black/dark car... Well, the streaks will still be there ofcourse, but at least less visible..😊
