agreed on the black accent part. full silver looks kinda odd.

If you dont use this technique, the results will vary, but doing it this way has worked 100% of the time

I dont use beta link because in the event that I damage the splitter, I want the option to remove it and replace it, rather than replacing the entire front bumper.
Thanks for the tips! I have installd my splitter today with your how-to and it is almost an excellent fit! I think it is a lot easier too to use double sided tape instead of beta link!

Thanks again!

P.S. I'm still hoping to hear from the TS, as the parts on his car are definitely installed incorrectly. I'm so curious who did that.

this is a 4 year old thread that got bumped. the dealer more than likely doesnt have this car anymore.
