adding oem aero front spoiler on bumper with clear bra

Hey Guys,

I have installed the 3m clear bra on my bumpers when i got the car and now I'm thinking about adding the oem aero front spoiler. Can someone tell me if that can be done WITHOUT having to remove part/all of the clear bra.

thanks for any input u would have

I wouldn't glue or tape the spoiler to the clear bra, but that's just me.

The clear is held on with adhesive, so if you add the spoiler over the clear you are going to have the spoiler pulling up on the clear. My guess it that it will eventually pull up the clear and then you will have a loose spoiler.

i was wondering this as well. I think we should be ok taping it on top because the oem spoiler isn't positioned so it is dangling off. There's a flat level service and it seems to even slip over part of the pre-existing bumper so it should be pretty well supported.
