Best method to install rear spoiler?

I am looking for some advice on what install method produces the best results, 3m tape or the Betalink adhesive. I have read the install posts and found some great info on installing the spoiler but not many opinions on which method looks better afterward. It appears the tape method is much less of a PITA but from the pics there does not look to be much of a difference after.

-Is there really any advantage to using the Betalink?

I think I am capable of doing either method I just want to use the method that is going to produce the best results. Any opinions on this will be appreciated.

Thanks
Wade

use betalink if you do not plan on taking the spoiler off later or are worried it might come off or someone might steal it.

I used betalink. I was initially scared to use it, but it worked out great and is incredibly solid. Just take your time, use lots of asking tape to cover non spoiler parts.

I'm a noob when it comes to DIY so I used tape and it was a breeze and the fit is perfect. if you're leasing the car, I would definitely use tape.
