Spoiler delete: yea or nay?

I'm considering removing the spoiler on my '04 GT convertible. My wife thinks it's a bad idea; I'm on the fence. I've seen one or two New Edge Mustangs around town with deleted spoilers, and I do like the clean look. I also wouldn't mind the extra bit of visibility with the spoiler out of the way. I showed some example photos to my wife, and she thinks it makes the car look generic ("like an Acura" is how she put it). I'll probably just end up trying it to see how I like it, but I'm curious to get some opinions from Mustang owners on whether they do or don't like that look, and why or why not.

I personally think it makes the car look sedan-ish, but if you need it for visibility, thats up to you

I think u need a wing on a vert, it's looks cleaner. But on a coupe, definitely go delete.

Sweet! That definitely enhances the retro styling on your GT. The New Edge though...I just don't know. The more I look at photos of New Edge convertibles with the spoiler delete, the more they look like Chrysler Sebrings to me!

I like the spoiler on my new edge. How about painting it matte black to give it a new look for deleting it.

I hadn't thought of that -- definitely worth considering!

I've always been a fan of the spoiler. I think it adds character to the Stang.

Now I didn't say I don't like the spoiler I just don't like the stock one though, I'm gonna get another spoiler I believe it's a must for a mustang as well but for a delete to switch it up a bit for a minute I thinks it's kool on the convert to do a delete but as far as permanently I can't say I agree with it being gone permanent it does change things but I'm out here in Atlanta and everybody and they momma has a blk GT and the same spoiler so I had to throw a curve ball to keep mine on the other side of the fence so to speak, but they say on here on ME it's your Stang and they are meant to be different so ur opinion is what ultimately makes it looks the best.

Deleting mine was the first thing I did. Granted it looks much better with wider tires and my car needs a drop but it may be helpful for ya. Click image for larger version

I like the look of no spoiler on the new edges and 05-09s. But the 2010+ must a spoiler!

Paint it Black like this one. This is a newer Kali Special Spoiler. Also post a pic of your car so we know what it might look like? I didn't see any pics in your profile garage.

Lol on the plates. I got comments everywhere I went with them but have since changed for the hell of it. Still got me hangin in the garage in case I feel like bringing them out of retirement.

As for the emblems mine were pretty faded and jacked up from the get go so I simply ordered brand new ones so they looked better and I had the same issue u do about getting them to stick. Once the new ones arrived I peeled the backing off exposing the adhesive side and I heated it up with a hair dryer. At he same time I had my brother using another hair dryer heating up the black panel. Once both were hot as hell I placed them on and not a problem since. The heat makes them tacky and sticky as ****.

Lol yea when I seen the plates I was cracking up, I thought they would mess with you just for fun

Thanks for the tip I didn't even think about heating up the back panel. Before I buy new emblems I will try that. Thanks

It very much a subjective opinion. IMO I have always been partial to spoilers and hood scoops (functional or not). The car seems to lose something on just the plain "sedanish" look.

Very interesting u said that I painted my emblems and when I put them on I could have did that too instead of putting more on their. I will remember that for next time for sure.
