How does the rear spoiler adhere? And am I naive thinking it would be super easy to self install?

For those of you that have installed the M perf rocker panels...they sell the decals (film strips) separately. How big are the film strips? Would the side panels look weird without them? Thanks for any info

Can the front spoiler be removed without damage to the factory M sport bumper if the spoiler gets scraped? I'm guessing the glue used will ruin the parts of the M sport factory bumper that are covered by this kit, and, even though this looks good, I'd only do it if it were a sacrificial part that could be removed if scraped and go back to factory, given how low it sits.

Did you guys figure out how to install the rear? I just placed an order and I'm wondering where the instructions went. Thanks so much fellas.

Very curious about this myself. Been debating doing this kit come spring...

Thanks so much for the info Steve. Really appreciate it. I'm supposed to get my rear diffuser any day now. I'll report back once I get it installed. Thank again!

I'm totally wondering the same thing. When I lower my car in the near future, I'm worried about the m sport bumper and not the diffuser. My local shop said that they can install it without the betalink and just the double sided tape so that it can be removed later. We would still be utilizing the screws of course. Since the bumper is polyurethane, I'm sure the bends and flexes from the diffuser being sacrificed shouldn't be an issue. I'll most likely be doing this so I can report back with my results.

Hey Steve, so I picked mine up today and installed it. The reason there are no instructions for the rear diffuser is because it's really straightforward. No double sided tape in the process. The diffuser is held in place by 7 screws along the lower outer edge and a series of tabs on the upper part where it meets the bumper. Remove the screws and access the outermost tab from the underside of the car. You can reach between the exhaust pipe. Pull down and push the first tab out. It's a little tough but once the first one comes out, the others pop out in sequence. Reverse the process and done!

Don't forget to "Re-assemble the car in a logical manner"

See #9 on the last page.

Anyone knows if the m perf rocker panels really require drilling? That doesn't really make this very DIY friendly...

So no drilling whatsoever? Just use existing bolts and screws?

Whoa sorry I missed this post. Yeah no drilling whatsoever. Uses the screws that are already there. You'll do it in like 10 minutes.
