Roadster rear spoiler, I cant decide if I like it or not.

I cant decide if I like it or not.
Do any roadster owners have the factory rear spoiler installed? If so, can you post a picture of the full car with the spoiler?
I'm considering getting one but there are no images on the internet other than a close up of the rear deck with spoiler, no images of the full car so I can see the overall effect.
This is all I can find, so if anyone here has it installed, do you have a better overall pic of your car?

I think the 3rd or 4th picture has a great shot. Almost convinced me to get one. I'm still debating though.

I vote no. I'll give them credit for making it look understated compared to some, but it still messes up the lines IMO.

I thought about one for awhile and decided that I didn't like it, although I'd still like to see one in person. It looks too much like a handle on the trunk.

I just had to buy a new pool vac and the handle kind of reminded me of the Z4 Aero Spoiler:

That's the one the BMW used to promo the M introduction.
....then they never made the spoiler.
& I have no idea why

The roadster already has a csl type trunk. Needs no spoiler imo

The Ac Schnitzer and Hamann spoilers are quite nice, of course they cost about double what the OEM one does.

I actually think they just caught it when the light blinked as you can see the rear turn signal is also lighted.

As an aside I always hate rear spoilers that make it hard to clean the area underneath it. The tiny carbon fiber one I see on the coupes is the only one I would go for.

Would Steve, who makes the MStache, make one like the OE lip on the coupe for our roadsters? I bet he'll make a killing since there are way more roadsters than coupes. 2.5, 3.0i, 3.0is and M.

Too bad I don't have any skills in that regard, otherwise, it'll already be done.. STEVE or anyone would take this project on?

There is a guy in my town with a red 2.5I roadster. Its in absolutely immaculate condition and he has installed after market rims (CSL reps I think) and one of those controversial rear spoilers.

I have to say that on a whole, the car looked great - spoiler included.

The Tischer style wing (wings) that come in 2 pieces look like "Dog ears" to me.
