Don't know how badly broken the spoiler but I agree with Cor, try to repair it yourself, you have nothing to lose and if you've never done anything like that before you stand a lot to gain.
A spoiler could be painted black, not matching the rest of the vehicle, and not look too badly out of place. Ideally one should remove the spoiler before painting.
