    i think all cars can look good witha spoiler, I don't like too many cars WITHOUT a spoiler, but I think the SC actually looks good without one, but a SC with a spoiler is definately sweet as well, on eof the few cars that looks good with or without one I guess!

    I prefer without. A few years back I decided I wanted to get the low profile wing style spoiler, never got it, now I can't imagine liking it if it were there! Sometimes I see spoilers on SC's and I think they look good one minute, but the next minute don't like it... Always think it looks good without. My girlfriend's 98 Escort on the other hand looked awful w/o, but pretty neat after we added it! Just my rambling $.02...

    WITHOUT

    SCs are made to have nice smooth curves, rounded front end as well as back end. thats how they were made and thats how they look good. spoilers take all of this away.

    Are you guys tellin me that you don't like imports with a 200lb.
    3 foot high, unpainted wing? Nothing screams race car like seat belt pads, coffee can exhaust, and a big ugly wing.

    Seriously now, get the spoiler
    my sc came with it on and I cant picture it without one.

    Thumbs down

    I'd have to agree with Livn, IMHO the nice smooth lines of an SC look better without a spoiler.

    cheers

    without

    sc isnt supposed to have that "overly sporty" look, more of a sleek look, like a cruising car

    Spoiler?

    Never much cared for spoilers. They're a bit of an over statement and kinda cheesy to me. With stock, lines remain simple, elegant. You wouldn't put a spoiler on a 66 GTO would you? Yet in each case you know they have balls. Just put pedal to metal if you ever need a reminder.

    Thumbs up Spoiled?

    I think they look good both ways. Kinda like askin' if you like that dancer with a G-string or without... ....They look sportier with, but don't really do anything besides create aerodynamic drag. They are too small to actually create any downforce.
    Mine came without, and I was thinking of putting one on, but I actually like the nice smooth lines of without better......just like that dancer...
