Hey guys, i've had my spoiler off for about a week now and i've just been trying to see what everyone thinks.
I don't know whether it makes the car look like a mock-up or not.
I'm still a bit undecided on it.
Let me know what you think...
I just hope i can post these pics ok,

Personnally I like it with the spoiler, goes with the body kit.

P.S love the wheels.

Yeah, I'm usually a no spoiler man, but it really does work with the XR body kit.

i reckon its much sleeker without- spoilers on falcons and similar sreet-going cars always seems like wank to me, even though its from the factory. dont mind it with the spoiler but i think its much more badass without

I find it hard to decide... both pictures are different perspectives, side on the spoiler looks great.... the other one looks good without the spoiler...

I'm normally a no spoiler man, but with the big chunky kit, you gotta keep it on :)

No spoiler, so smick and clean.
To be honest it looks good with both, and the spoiler does suit the kit, but I prefer no spoilers meself and it looks ace without it too (doesn't look like there's something missing).

I am also undecided as your XR8 looks good with or without the rear spoiler.
I think the Wheels which are fantastic, sort of take your eye away from the Spoiler at the back. If you want something different then " Spoilerless" is the way to go. I think people will sort of look at it and go," what is that?" Whereas with the spoiler people will go , "Yeah just another XR8."

Yeah I'm in two minds too. But first the spoiler isn't a bad spoiler, not over stated at all. 1st picture is very cool and let me say, what a f**k nice car man.
On the other hand, I am one of those guys that likes the clean lines on a car that aren't interupted by a spoiler. I need some more pictures of different angles without the spoiler, one down the side of the car from the front where you can see the boot, one to compare the 1st picture with, and some more because your car is easy on the eyes.. 8-)

I'm for the spoiler, I think with the body kit it would look like its missing something without it.

Needs a nice small lip spoiler something similar to the ED XR's if you ask me. But I dont think anyone has ever done one for the el or ef. Maybe some EF tail lights too?
