Something is wrong with the second pic.
I think spray painting the car will make it look worse than it already is, especially two or three years down the road when the spray paint starts peeling off. That is unless you were talking about doing the job right and sanding the car down and using Dupont or PPG paint.

spray painting it flat black will make it look like a joke.. unless thats what you want

I painted my old minivan with a gallon of semi-gloss black exterior house paint with a roller, and this is how it turned out

I agree, flat black is for hillbilly redneck rides. If anything, just get some flexible paint, and spray the spoiler to match.
