just use 3M double-side tape yourself, no need spend money to install that lip.

Dude, you don't even need to remove the bumper as shown in the instruction. Just fit it on with 3M tape and push in.

Then what's all the clips and Masking tape I see on people's install pictures??

And do you have to remove any piece of the car to fit it on?? Or you just lay it on top or what.

If you're in North Phoenix/ North Scottsdale, go to Exklusiv Motorsports and have Derek install it for you. He primarily does Audi/VW stuff right now, but he used to do a lot of custom work with BMW's.

If you're in Tempe, go to Evolution Motorsports.

Both shops do excellent work.

Those're for installations with Betalink since this black glue needs time to dry and masking tapes are to avoid the glue to spill out to your bumper. It's hard to clean it up.
There's no need for bumper removed, just bumper screws at the bottom. For fiberglass lip, I recommend to use Betalink and dry it overnight with clamps on and also to take out and cut these grill bars shorter. For DTM Hartge replica lip, there's no need. Just put it on with 3M tape in 15 minutes. No cutting or removing part whatsoever.

Sweeeet, thanks Pretender. Sounds simple enough. And thanks JB for the references, I will be sure to check it out if I can find someone willing to do a GB for the LIP!!!!

I'll have to see how much install is vs. if it looks like I can do it easily. Sounds pretty easy though now.
