In FWDs, the slip angles at front are greater than slip angles at rear. So, I guess, spoilers are not needed.
Offcourse, they increase the asthetic value.
I don't think they have much of a purpose on fwd cars. I would still put a small one on mine if i had such a vehicle though, just for the beauty.
