Default Rear spoiler removing? Looks amazing!

Hiya folks,

So I just picked up my XKR from the body shop, long story short the boot lid needed resprayed.
As I was picking it up they were just re attaching the tiny little rear spoiler, so I got a chance to see what the back end looked like without the wing, and it looked incredible!!!
Now Iím thinking of taking it off and permanently filling in and painting over the three holes that locate the wing.

So, my questions are: Jaguar put that wing on for a reason, what effect am I going to cause by removing it? Iím assuming something like stability at high speed? And if thatís the case Iíll forget about it, wing stays on!

And, has anyone already done this? If so, photos please?! :-P

The spoilers/wings on these cars are for aesthetic purposes only. No performance capability whatsoever....

If you decide to leave it off and want to sell it, do let me know!
