Opinions?: black rear spoiler on white car

I'm thinking of changing out my rear spoiler to one of the strosek style spoilers. I've just picked up some black wheels (carrera light weights, silver outer lip, painted black spokes) and have done a few other black things (removed the silver emblem from the rear and replaced it with a single black 's'...gott get a new picture up) on my white / black / black car. Any thoughts on how a black strosek spoiler would look? I'm thinking it will look great in the 'up' position...just not so sure about how it will look in the down position.

I have the Strosek rear turbo spoiler and I would recommend painting it your cars color. It might look a little off-key or out of place if it doesnt match....
My two cents....

where'd you get the strosek wing?
I saw a knock-off of the strosek style on sportscarsolutions.com

I ordered it through Posche Pitstop in Alexandria VA. They got it shipped with some other items I bought from Germany.

I like the look of your spoiler.

Paint it, it'll looks like some hill billy Porsche if it doesn't match. From a distance it'll look like you only primed it black and didn't get around to painting it like those primer black or primer grey cameros you see that only have parts of the car painted.

Negative on the black spoiler. Black wheels should look pretty sweet though. Post pics when you get them on.
