Removing Aero kit, assistance please!

Anyone have any recommendations on how I could remove a front aero lip on an E92. I got a few dings and scratches that are getting quite annoying to look at. How would I go along removing the lip? Will my OEM front bumper look rather deformed now that the lip will be removed? Thanks in advance

Hmmm, I don't even know... All I remember was paying for the adhesive at my local BMW who took care of it. I'm assuming something sticky since it took 24 hours to dry.

It's most likely betalinked, and therefore not coming off.

betalink can be removed, your gonna need some heat, blow dryer, and soome windex, remove the bolts on the bottom of the lip and start from the side of the lip using some hot air from the blow dryer and soaking it down with windex, gonna take some time for sure! def shit hard. sometimes it dont even come offf. dont use tooo much heat tho.
after you might need some poilsh maybe even rubbing compound to take off excess glue around some areas.
