Well, in my opinion spoilers of any kind are so named because they "spoil" the looks of any car. I hate them.
Guess my vote!

Actually that Spoiler is not bad looking on the S as it fits the rest of the kit and is a true functional spoiler not just for looks. The deep trough on the spoiler really makes it work at speeds over 85MPH+. So if your never going those speeds it is pretty much useless.The only problem I see is you're going to have a couple holes in your trunk lid. Well, that's not the only problem; you're going to have to do something about the third brake light. If you just leave it off, you're going to have an annoying dash light coming on every time you brake. You can also get cited for not having it as it is a federal requirement. You can fix this by getting the 3rd stop lamp assembly from a B/L and retrofitting it inside the car. I'm not sure if the heating elements would damage it as the B/L rear window is different than that of the S. That's my eventual plan, but for now the spoiler stays. I'm basically trying to make it look more like a european model than a US model, but still appear stock.
Thanks Rory!!!Get the Zender type rear spoiler as on this thread http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/showthread.php?t=40514 as it is simple and cool as picture of a real one on Jason's car below.
I think he has 1 available still in his initial order of 5 being made now.

I may start looking to make the Zender spoiler in the near future as so many people want them. I am probably going the fiberglass route to make it light.
I have my own design in mind for a little more function, although the zender does function as a spoiler.
I would say do what you want. I think it looks good both ways. I love it without and it looks great with.
Most of the European model QV did not come with the spoiler like other models.
If you can find the Zender Spoiler like OEM it weights about half the OEM:
