Default New spoiler paint job. Definitely different, what do y'all think?

This is a bad news turned good news story for sure. I got rear-ended at a red light 10 days ago, sucks, but no major damage. The guy that hit me had managed to ALMOST stop short of the collision. He bumped me doing about 15 I would guess. Insurance, body shop, blah blah blah, long story short, the body shop was cool enough to take a special request when they repainted my CDC spoiler. I like it much better now. What do y'all think?

Love it! The old looked tacked on. This looks like it was meant to be that way.

Big improvement, the way you had it just stood out too much. Did not flow well with the rest of the car. Now it blends in and looking at it from the rear it gives a little kick to a$$ end.
