1. Buy fishing line
2. Steal wife's blow dryer
3. Heat end of spoiler up with blow dryer
4. Use a piece of 2' or so fishing line and begin to "saw" back and forth between spoiler and trunk
5. Continue to heat up spoiler as you go, switching between blow dryer and fishing line
6. Once you have "sawed" all the way under the spoiler from one end to the other, pull it up and it should pop off the car
7. Use Goo Gone, WD-40, Goof Off, or whatever other adhesive remover or combination of to remove left over residue (requires the most time and patience)
8. Return blow dryer before your wife notices

works good with spoon in both hand to help you hold the fishing line and don't hurt

For the fishing line go with fluorocarbon if you can. Pricier, but more abrasion-resistant than monofilament so it allows you to cut through with a smaller line size.
