3M Tape

I've ordered my carbon splitter, but I don't really want to drill it into my bumper, people are recommending 3M tape, but which 3M tape do I buy or shall I opt for hard as nails tape, which I also can't find! Can someone point me in the right direction?

If you intend this to be permanent you could use Sikaflex or similar

You can find the 3m tape at any auto store. Just re did my splitters earlier this week got a new roll at autozone. My advice is don't go light on the tape so you wont have gaps that's why i re did mine.

Why do you not want to drill? It is the safest way. There will always be a risk of it coming off on the motorway and being shattered with tape.

If you want to use tape, what you need is the red 3M double sided exterior tape from B&Q.

Cheers guys for all the replies, I don't want to drill it as I dont it permanently on and if I later come to sell the car, I may remove them. I cant seem to find the 3M tape on the site, and I'm aware that there are a lot of 3M red double sided tape...is there any one in particular?

I would def drill it otherwise you have a good chance of losing it all the holes are hidden so if you remove it later it wont show, if its the bmw perf one I certainly wouldn't want that coming off at that price!!

If you have no luck give me a shout, we use industrial strength 3M stuff at work, can sort you out enough to do what you want to do.
