Errrm that looks pretty horrid to me.

There are 3 or 4 types of standard fit spoilers which are much more in keeping with the car.

The small lip spoiler which is discreet
The Standard Gti type spoiler
The Roversports "whale tail" type spoiler

All of which look a lot more in keeping with the car than that. Huge spoilers on 200's don't look good. Look at that horrid one on e-bay at the moment to see what I mean.

On the practical side it'll ruin the aerodynamics and slow the car down, and also you'll lose all your rear visability so parking may become fun.

Don't get me wrong I'm not against modding, just it has to suit the car and in my opinion that just doesn't suit.

:mouthshut

I am sure we can provide ideas for something more in tune with the car. There is a pic of the rover whaletail one here, which I think looks pretty good.

It was an optional extra from the roversports styling range, so some cars will have them. They are rare so hard to get hold of. A couple have come up recently though.
