Depends on how large the surface contact area is. If it's large, adhesive may be enough, but if you want to keep it for a long time fasteners may be the way to go. Just depends.

If youre just testing it out right now, and its a small lightweight spoiler with a large contact area, Id just use adhesive. But anything larger, and/or if you plan on keeping it on when temperatures drop this winter, Id use screws.
