Or carbon lip spoiler. Depends too on the rest of the car, i.e. wheels and body kit.

Go for a subtle boot lip rather than a spoiler :thumb:

This is what I used ....

Yeah a lip can look ok if the rest of the car has a sporty look. It'd look out of place on mine though.

Personally I don't like them anymore and haven't for a long time now.

I resisted on my W211 because it ruins the lines for me.

The car doesn't really need more down force for regular driving and as a visual "enhancement", I think they look a bit cheapy.

Had I bought the car with one fitted, I would have lived with a lip spoiler but that would be it. Anything else would have to go!

I think you've got a point; I don't think it suits every model, but I think the CLK (for example) looks better with the lip.

Try to get an OEM lip spoiler from Mercedes. I had an AMG spoiler on my C-Class, bought from Mercedes for very little, and to my eyes it sharpened the rear of the car perfectly :thumb:
