Warning removal of Alfa 156 high boot spoiler

I am thinking of removing the spoiler from my Alfa as I have always been undecided if its cool or naff. also the paint is fading on it where the rest of the car is a lovely lusso red.

Has anyone taken there's off before? if so are the holes small enough to fill in and touch up or am I just going to make it look worse?

As a thought it might be better to get a boot lid without a spoiler from a breaker - that way you do not have to worry about holes etc

It'll be a lot cheaper and a lot less hassle to replace the boot lid. You may also be able to flog your current one with the spoiler and make some cash back.
