IMO your car looks good without one. but that is just me.

From those pics though you ned to do some work on your rear bar to make it blend in with the rest of the kit.

Custum rear lip around the bottom of the rear bar, as fat as the side skirts, if you know what i mean.

This would create the illusion that your car is actually lower and fatter than it looks in those photos.

by putting a spoiler on the back, you will shift the profile of the car upwards above the waistline. Not a cool look. But that is just my opinion.
Also would be too much kit, and look like a VL Walkinshaw, e.g. ugly.
loose the great look from the factory.

in otherwords fix the rear bar and your car looks awesome. 8-) 8-)

i totally agree wit eacruiser

ur car doesnt need a spoiler

it would just wreck the look of the rest of your kit

at the moment your car looks sleek and tuff and u should keep the style you're going with at the moment (my opinion)

so just continue the kit round the back as you did in that pic and everything should be sweet

This one is a custom bar, using the standard ef bar with a BA custom bottom fiberglass section.
