I suggest a bigger rear spoiler first if you want another front splitter. The front of your car is already quite aggressive that any more and I feel it looks unbalanced. It's good as it is now for example.
Am not suggesting going full BGW, just bigger to match the front if you add the splitter.

The only Spoiler's that ever got tested in a wind tunnel was the type of Spoiler I already have on my GT86 and the Spoiler that went on the Facelifted Model from 2017 =D> , the Aero and Duck Spoilers were never tested and were stuck on for show :!:

My car used to look very aggressive with the Front Splitter :twisted:
