Need help with Front Lip installation!

Hi guys, Im from San Francisco and I need some help...
Has anyone ever installed this lip before from JL Motoring?
http://www.jl-motoring.com/BMW_E90_E...p/bmfs9026.htm
I believe it's the same as JG mod/SonicTuning/ other vendors on the site.

Does anyone have any instruction on how to install it, since i dont see any pre-drilled holes on the lip itself.
Or any suggestions on where i can bring my car to, to have the lip installed nearby San Francisco Bay Area?

Thank you!

Your link doesn't work, so we can't really see the lip. It depends on the fitment of your lip. If the fitment is really good, then you can just use double sided tape. If the fitment is not good, then you can use double sided tape, and line up the lip and drill holes through the lip onto your bumper at the bottom of your car. I ended up doing both. I prefer double sided tape only so nothing happens to my stock bumper, but the weather gets intense here in Canada, along with the fitment being really shitty, so I ended up drilling holes and using double sided tape.

Measure, drill holes, 3M double sided sticky tape should do. I think prep work is important as well before applying the tape. And it's from JL, so it should be pretty good in terms of fitment.

I bought a cf diffuser from them, the fitment is mediocre at best, I recommend getting it installed at a local body shop

Jack the car up, have someone hold the lip into place, drill self tapping holes. Done.
