Also since the spoiler you bought doesn't really extend very far out from the body, there will not be very much torque or leverage applied to the spoiler. Glue it if you want, but it is unnecessary.

Cool. Thanks for the info. I might just add a little glue just for some insurance. I will definately have to wait until it gets warmer over here to install it. Negative temps here right now. lol

Spring is just around the corner. Perhaps there is a heated garage somewhere around the corner as well? BYW, I don't think that glue and 3M Tape are compatible.

The paint on the lip takes 4 weeks to cure so Im not going to be putting it on yet because its stupid. It would get full of salt here in chicago and scuff up like crazy.....It would look like crap because I cant wax it and the streets here in chicago have salt all over. I remember making this mistake with my other car...... I will put it on probably mid march once everything calms down.....Chicago winter = Big swirl marks........ But i will definately take some pictures once i get it back from paint and ill do a test fit for you guys with pics ill just tape it on so you can see how it will look.....

Also, looks like i wont be getting it back until next week......So ill keep you guys posted for sure.......
