The yellow spoiler you drew in might misrepresent the majority of aftermarket roof spoilers. From what I can tell many of them are rather flat 180 degree plane.

However some do angle up a bit at the lip similar to your addition.

I think that some of these roof spoilers are small enough and flat enough as not to cause as much damage as others of more aggressive design.

Meaning one is still shooting one's self, but not a head shot, just shooting one's self in the foot.
