Yup! Did them both by myself.. The hardest part was getting rid of that damn residue left behind from the stock lip!! What a pain in the ass it was to get rid of that crap!!!!

The diffuser was a breeze to install! Fitment was really good!

Thanks guys! Here's the link! If it doesn't sell this time around I will relist it again for those that didn't see it! It is a really great looking diffuser, I just wanted Carbon Fiber.

Is the spoiler installed with any sort of bolts or just with a 3m glue? Im looking at the seller's website and is not very clear. Please let me know, it looks very nice! +1

The CF spoiler doesn't come with any mounting stuff. I had to go purchase two rolls of 3M outdoor double sided tape, one roll wasn't quite enough. This particular tape holds up to 5lbs. per every 4 inches so it was overkill but piece of mind for me. The CF spoiler didn't even weigh in a 1.5 lbs if I remember correctly, it was very light weight.

I also used a thin bead of clear silicon, the type you can buy at the hardware store for around $6.00 a tube. I used this to make a water tight seal around the entire spoiler. I didn't want anything to get up underneath it and get to the double sided tape. It filled in any slight fitment issues very nicely! I used a bead of clear silicon for the sight gap on the edges of the CF diffuser as well but that's entirely up to you.

Remember, the force air puts on it at say 100 mph is much much more than 1.5lbs

I've had the spoiler on for almost two weeks now and have no issues and believe me I hit 100 mph on a daily basis!
