Carbon Fiber Spoiler DIY Request

I recently purchased the carbon fiber mirrors from bmw and was looking at the spoiler, it costs a reasonable 500 but my dealership wants $126 an hour and says the install will take 3 hours...Is the install and removal of stock spoiler really that difficult? How would I do it myself?

See here and here

$126/hr is too much. $500 for the spoiler is too much.

The spoiler is much cheaper than 500.00 isnt it? Also its super easy to install yourself, mirror covers are a breeze too. Look for the videos that JohnL135 made. I think that's his name. They were super easy to follow and make the job a breeze. The stock spoiler is just held in place by sticky 3m tape. The hardest part is getting all the gunk off after removal. Goo-gone works wonders for this.

Haha i just noticed vid was posted above.
