In this country every second car has a spoiler. Unless it is designed
aerodynamically and specifically for the car (and virtually none are),
aftermarket spoilers are purely cosmetic. Opinion on desirability is
thus purely subjective so I suggest you get it if you like it & don't
if you don't!
FWIW I have not put one on my A4 because I feel it "spoils" the clean
balanced lines of the standard body. If I was going to skirt the car
and change to larger wheels then I probably would. Also, the A4 has
a very low Cd of 0.29 and adding a spoiler will "spoil" this increasing fuel
consumption and reducing top speed.
BTW I think the A4 looks SUPER in silver.
