OEM Spoiler on or off?

I bought my SES with a Spoiler and I don't know but what do you guys like? With or without the spoiler? First of all I don't really think the stock spoiler is that great and I've seen blackedout focuses without the spoiler and still looks good.

So do you guys think my focus would look better with or without the spoiler?

I like it better without, personally. If you already have one just keep it, there are 8 holes in the trunk holding it on. You would have to find a different style spoiler with the exact same bolt holes or get your existing holes filled.

With.

No spoiler makes it look cheap and you'll have to deal with holes in your trunk lid.

I like the spoiler on. My coupe came with the spoiler above the rear window though and I really like it.

I have a question for you though. How and what did you use to paint your SES rims black? I desperately want to do the same and would appreciate your advice. If not then I will have to settle for plastidip

Not all of the nicer models came with them, my moms 2010 SEL came fully loaded but no spoiler! She added one later on but from the factory no spoiler

I had them professionally painted at "Elite Roads" in South Florida, I didn't do them myself. I know a lot of shops that will do them real good but if you're ever planning a trip to Miami or something I would definitely recommend you getting tints and rims down there.

I prefer no spoiler. It gives it a more "grown up" look to me, like a BMW or Mercedes. But if I had one I would probably leave it on unless I could get a trunk lid from a junkyard at a reasonable price. Here is my car w/o spoiler:
