To spoil or not to spoil, THAT is the question...

hey peoples, i have been thinking about doing this for ages and ages - i dont know if i should ditch the rear spoiler or not - the only reason its on there is cause ford slapped it on when the car was being built, should i keep it or take it off?



(i know the pics are from crap angles, i just did it in the carport last night :S)

and i would save about 5kg of weight off the back of the car too...and get some areodynamic help? all the better for the quarter mile, my dear...

Re: To spoil or not to spoil, THAT is the question...

It would have had a lip spoiler when new. Interesting.

I think it looks good either way - the spoiler is something unique and suits that application, though I'd never ever go out of my way to install one.

Keep it, if not that one another one, they look to plain without a rear spoiler, IMO.

I dont think they were standard so it may not have had one from new. Tkfrd6 has the same one on his car as well.

Get rid of it man! I hate spoilers except the boot lip type ones. It looks SO much better without it...makes the car look sleeker and lower.
