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.
