Default with or without a spoiler?

I'm trying to decide if I want to install a spoiler on my car when I get it painted. pretty simple question. Do you like the look with, or without a spoiler? Thanks!
With a spoiler

stock, without a spoiler




btw, the cost of the spoiler is $204.

I think it would look quite good with that spoiler. A unique Riv

It looks to heavy on the back of the car, especially one as sleek as the Riv. If it had a minor gap between the trunk lid and the spoiler maybe, but, otherwise it looks heavy.

Your car is unique enough as it is.

How many middle brake lights do you wanna run?

Without, on the shear fact it makes it look much skinnier/taller with one.

well, just the stock center brake light is enough for me, that'* why I liked teh first spoiler. I wish they had pictures from directly behind. That would definately help me decide somewhat. I like the look with. The rear end is too wedged IMO.
