Now, my question... Does anyone know what I might do to get the thing to open fully on a flat surface?
Thank you!

A rear spoiler is additional weight and additional weight does not make the trunk lid open any easier; believe me...I have a spoiler.

Maybe you can add #1 spring pads in the front and #3 spring pads in the rear so that the car is always standing downhill . What is wrong with the trunk handle; MB designed it there to open the trunk lidů
