Default Spoiler...or no spoiler?

I'm trying to decide whether or not to get a spoiler when I order my xB. what's your opinion?

Unless you want to add it to your financing, I'd get one later. If you get one and don't like it, you're stuck with holes on the top of your hatch if you take it off...

I say yes. I got my xB without the wing and foglights to save myself some cash. I just ordered my wing and foglights today. I should have them tomorrow. I paid $447.60 for both. Not too shabby :D . The dealer wanted twice as much.

Every xB needs a shopping cart handle!!!

Seriously I wish I had put one on mine from the factory but now I want an aftermarket one.

It's Blue by the way so it meets ShowPao's criteria.

Yo ShowPao why weren't you at the Bj's/KK meet?

I liked it both ways and decided against it just because of the cost. If it had helped clean the rear window (some SUV's use these to wind wash the rear window) I'd have gone for it, but I heard it doesn't help.

I'm in to the clean look though.. except that scion logo sticker on the front clip.. I like it and I don't like that I like it, but damned if I don't like it.

I think its *ok*, just too expensive for me. But, if its only a few bucks more a month, maybe just do it.

Cost isn't an issue for me, I'm just afraid that it will take away from the signature "boxy" look that I like so much

Looks better with factory spoiler than without one, in my opinion--well worth the cost for the OEM quality of the piece you are getting--and if you want to go aftermarket later, you can always sell it, these things will attract good money just because of the fact that they are an OEM option.

Also, an aftermarket wing might only look good with a complimenting aftermarket body kit...please, keep that in mind--it will save you much embarresment.
