    The Audi TT Quattro that I had (2002 model) did have a small spoiler at the back end - if I recall, it had been redesigned for that model year because the original design wasn't providing enough downdraft. It was fixed, though, not moveable like the one on the Corrado.

    If you get an evo spoiler and put it on a lancer you are ricey. Only the factory spoiler to me isnt ricey. For example i want to get a 99 or 00 civic SI some didnt come with the spoiler so im going to get the factory OEM one. Also are you going to have a way to paint it? Unpainted spoilers are ricey.

    Yeah, the Evo spoiler is a lot like the one on the previous-generation Subaru WRX STi- freakishly big. To balance out the ugly, they put a huge scoop on the hood that looks dumb. All the new WRXs have a hood scoop that looks like the mouth of a stingray or something.

    Then again, the 2010 MAZDASPEED3 is getting a similar hood scoop that ruins the entire shape/contour of the front clip! The '09 and earlier versions had their air intake under the front bumper...much better looking setup and just as effective....but I digress.....unless you're thinking of putting an Evo hood on the Lancer....

    Since actual aerodynamics doesn't seem to be the real goal here, anyone know if these outlandish "spoilers" have caused any wrecks due to unbalancing the car's aerodynamics (e.g., by lifting the rear to the point where it won't stick properly in a curve)?
