4 door OEM spoiler dorky?

I wonder what you guys think about the OEM spoiler on a 4 door sedan. I just got new rims and Iīm thinking about getting the spoiler but Iīm not sure about the looks. Do you think it will look dorky with it?

I like how the 2 door looks with the spoiler but the sedanīs trunk and rear lights are so different. Please let me know if you have a satin silver sedan with the spoiler posted on the membersī rides to check it out.

What about the OEM fog light kit? I like it a lot but think its quite expensive, do you know where can you get it cheap?

Thanks

I think you can actually do a search for that in the Member's Ride area (but I havent tried it yet so I'm not sure), or you can check out my ride. It aint silver though, but it'll give you an idea.

As for the fogs, I think you can get them cheap from tornactive.com.

Spoilers look fine on a 4dr. In fact I just ditched my OEM spoiler for the Carbon Fiber ST wing from Arospeed. As soon as I can figure out photoshop and shrink my pics down, I'll post them.

I'm not a big fan of huge a$$ spoilers, especially on a 4 door. but something like a touring type that does not have a high profile(looking like a shopping cart) will do well IMO.

I thought my sedan looked like sheite until I installed the oem spoiler. I would definately pick one up. I think it really helps the car look better from the rear.

That would depend on your definition of huge. I don't think the OEM one is that big or tall, compared to many.

I've owned my sedan for 2 weeks now but when we were looking I hated the looks of the sedans w/o the oem spoiler. Ours (silver) looks great! I love mine, I agree with "huge" spoilers looking dumb.

thanks for the pics everyone.

So far I think the oem spoiler looks good, I havenīt seen any 4 door with a spoiler where I live so I really didnīt now how it looks. My opinion on dorky looking 4 door cars was based more on the new sentra, where the spoiler makes it look like its trying to hard to become a cool car.

I think it looks really good on the sedans actually brings out the look more. I would totally say get one, it looks good on my coupe also.

Someone on the website was selling their spoiler on ebay and got it from their dealer intially. It is a really sleek looking spoiler, lower than factory, and it just looked incredible. I think that would look really good on the sedan, even better than the oem spoiler. do a search under the for sale forum, I think he was selling that cool spoiler and a kaminari kit. just my 2 cents
