Default Spoiler Height?

I don't know if anyone agrees with me but...I think it would look really good to raise the spoiler just like 2 or 3 " to give it some space between the trunk and everything..blah blah. Anyone know the pricing on that..and if i could get it done professionaly and not ricey. I dont want shinney chrome **** on there, I want silver/grey that matches my car to connect the spoiler to my car. Just a suggestion.

My $.02? I like the sleek look. That'* what makes our cars the true sleepers. The last thing I want is a ricer or mustang look. I like the 'what the hell just blew my doors off' look I get from those fools. Why advertise?

I would have to say "No" because I don't think Bonnevilles are meant to have a accented spoiler look. Ford Mustage SVT'* are. Swap those spoilers and I don't think either would look too great. Just my thoughts...

My heart says NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

BUT I like people who think as an individual and you are looking to try to maintain integrity, soooo it can be done and I would get a body shop to do it for you. Donít go any higher than 2" or I will have to come out and break it off.

LOl
Have fun dude its your car, worst case scenario you can put it back.
live and learn

The only reason i said anything was for the looks. I wasn't doing it so i could make my car more aerodynamic or anything, lol. I think the bonne is a sporty 4-door car so i think it might look alright. I'd get it done professionaly..no " ricey " thin metal **** ..lol. I'll try and do a visual on the computer and show ya.
